this is my first post here. I am not from uk but i found information on this forum very useful. And i hope than some of you could answer my questions ^^
First here is my introduction. I have Hashimotos, had it diagnosed more than 15 years ago, in high school, and treat it with L thyroxine since then. However, in recent years i am feeling much worse(tired, sleepy, brain fog, some allergy-like sinusitis) than i used to, and that motivated me to look into this disease and what is written on it in the internet. I found out eating gluten can be harmful for me, i found out about autoimmune paleo protocol(aip), about vitamins i probably need to supplement and other stuff i didn't even think about before. So 6 monthes ago i started following aip hoping it would help my health problems. So far I'm not even sure I'm doing it right and if there are any improvements due to this diet. I lost some weight though and my family says i look more healthy lol so i keep eating like that, trying not to cheat too often.
Anyway, my question is something else. You see, i am really very sensitive to cold. When other people around me would sleep without any blankets i need 2 to feel comfortable. I hate air conditioning and would rather sleep/work in heat etc. I think i was like that since forever, but something weird happened to me this weekend. We went abroad with my friends for 3 days 2 nights and i forgot to take my L-thyroxine with me. So i missed taking it 2 mornings and i don't know if it's just coincidence, but i didn't feel cold in the mornings as i used to before. Then i came back home, and it felt really hot sleeping the way i used to. But in the morning i took finally L thyroxine pill and then went back to sleep. And as i woke up again it felt so cold again. So now i have suspicion it may be connected to the pause in medication? What do you think? What experience do you have on this matter? Thank you in advance
