I've started getting night sweats.... is this a symptom of Hashimotos/thyroid? I'm 36 years old so too young for the menopause?? My mother was in her late 50s. I haven't been blessed with children yet, I'm getting tested for a blood clotting disorder when my next tests are due (in May) so that is on hold until then. I can't go to my doctor because I went to him a year before my thyroid diagnosis with menorrhagia and weight gain (which I now know was due to Hashimotos) and he said it was because I was getting old. I can't cope with going to him with this just for him to say it is because of my age. It took all my strength trying to get a diagnosis in the first place and I'm not ashamed but the only reason I got a proper diagnosis was because I took my mother with me to the doctors surgery.
