Ok, so I am convinced I have been hypo for years, getting steadily worse. a couple of queries - can stress make symptoms worse? I have had dreadful few weeks at work and feel grim. also, are hot flushes a feature of being hypo? I am having about 3 an hour since all the stress, along with the usual exhaustion and depression. it could be the menopause, but seem a very sudden. Not sure if it's linked. any ideas?
