Silly question number 2,

I have never met anyone in my whole life who has the same problem : if I get too cold around my tummy and don't put something warm on in time, I ended up getting cramp in my intestines, often followed by the runs. A doctor once told me ' Oh yes old women get this' Hmm I was seventeen at the time, and still have it forty five. Anyone out there with the same problem and is it related to hypothyroidism ?

I don't think that's a silly question :)

I've not heard of it before but your GP had. Were you hypo when you were 17?


I will never know ! I also used to get terrible cramp if I went out with wet hair, by I guess I must be one of a kind.
