Hi, can anyone help me please, I can't stop shivering, after 3 pm I start to shiver and it gets worse when I go to bed, I continue shivering from the core of my body for a very long time, I am hugging my hottie, I am wrapped up in a 13.5 tog quilt and also have a thick blanket on top of that, the bed is nice and warm too. but I continue to shiver I eventually fall asleep but wake up within a few hours but this time I am very hot and I have to throw the blanket off and put the fan on. I can't win.
I went to see a doctor today, he was useless, he said it was not my thyroid that was causing it because my TSH was 3.1 and it should be within 0.3 - 5.5 and that was more likely to be down to the menopause but he arranged a blood test for 20th of this month, after I requested a full thyroid function test.
My results from the last test on 29/09/15 TSH level of 3.1
21/07/15 test results
serum follicle hormone lvl 55.2
serum LH level 33.7
plasma parathyroid hormone lvl 3.93
I hope someone can help me, is it my thyroid or is it the menopause?
