How can I tell the difference? Doc has been saying "perimenopause" for a while based on blood tests but didn't have any symptoms at all, until overheating thing started a couple of weeks ago.
Been on a trial of Armour for 4 months and feeling waaaay better than I did on Levo or T3, but for the first time EVER I'm often feeling too hot. Overheating with just a little exertion or even sitting still in a room that is just "cosy".
But also getting regular waves of heat coming over me. Starts at the back of my head/neck and moves over my scalp with a kinda queasy pressure in my head and sinuses, then legs and everywhere else heat up. It'll happen even if I haven't really felt too hot until then. My face doesn't really heat up or get flushed, but I feel hot and clammy. Is this what a hot flush feels like?
I'm wary of telling Endo as he already wants to cut meds based on last TSH, believing I'm overmedicated.
TSH is suppressed at less than 0.02
FT4 15.7 [12 - 22]
FT3 5.2 [3.1 - 6.8]
