I'm totally down. Wish I knew what's going on.. I'm swinging between either really cold at times to feeling sweaty. I was diagnosed with under active thyroid back in January time. I'm on 125mcg levo.
I was okay on the 100mcg and when I upped to 125.. But I took 125 cpl days ago and got a headache after taking my levo. I don't know if it was the levo or not!..
I went into earlymenopause over 4 years ago (aged 39(2 mnths short off my 40th). Been on hrt since.
But I don't know if it's the levo, but lately I've been getting hot flushes. I've hardly had any up til recently. Could it be the levo is stopping the patch from working properly now and causing me to feel like this. ? I'm not sleeping well either. Keep waking every cpl hours. Feeling sweaty.. And nervous inside .. I will also add I've been suffering with stomach problems for years as well which got worse. Burning in abdomen and chest. Big weight gain.. I'm waiting to have an endoscopy as it's getting me so down and caused me to have panic attacks .does levothyroxine definitely work? If so how long does it take or can it make u feel worse?.
My TSH at last check had gone from 11 down to 7 and I'm having it tested again very soon... I also have horrid bowel motion (sorry about the info).. Either constipation or more often: loose stools that resemble COW pat. And foul smelling.. Sometimes after going toilet I am either sweating or feel freezing cold come over me...
Any ideas on what the hell is going on? Anybody else like this?..Its like my body temperature is messed up. Wonder if the fact I'm menopausal and hypothyroid together is to blame for all this ????
