I'm hypothyroid (though I suspect I have hashimotos) on Cynomel, about 75mcg a day, taken four times a day and built up over months to the dose I feel most well on. My last TSH result was 0.5.
I do feel well, I definitely don't feel exhausted anymore. I now only have three health problems -
1) neck muscles that go into spasm, which may be related to my hypothyroidism or may be to do with an old neck injury,
2) I am still very overweight despite never being an overeater (probably the result of being under-medicated and wrongly medicated for over a decade) and that shows no sign of melting away on it own as I hoped it would!,
3) the over-heating. I think I'm too young for it to be the menopause and anyway, the over-heating is my only symptom. All of a sudden I go bright red and start sweating, I feel unbearably hot. Even when it's cold.
Does anyone have an explanation or theory for my issues, particularly the third one? It's so depressing. Everytime I think I'm on the right track, here comes a new health issue to deal with!
