Hi everyone, hoping I can get some ideas about what's going on with my thermostat.
As background, I've fairly recently starting self medicating with lowish dose T3, but the following has been going on since before I started:
When I exercise, I always get way too hot, way too quickly - but my temperature is always low afterwards.
To give an example, the other day I got home from a half hour walk dripping in sweat and boiling hot (I do walk quickly, but I'm quite fit, I only had a thin top on and it was after dark so the outside temp was cool), but I took my temp and it was 34.6 °C.
Last night I was sat here feeling really chilly, (which is unusual for me, as even though my 'normal' temp without meds is 35.5 - 36 °C I usually feel quite warm) so I took my temp and it was 37 °C (!!). I've only ever been that hot when running a fever, (when I was a kid my mum knew I was ill when my temperature got up to 'normal').
Does anyone have a clue whats going on?
Firstly, why do I get so hot SO easily? Is it lack of T3? Like I said at the top, it was the same before I started taking anything, and I know I'm not on a high enough dose...
Second, why am I internally freezing when I feel like I've been to the sun (and look like I've been in the shower :\ ). I read somewhere that that can happen with low cortisol, where adrenaline compensates and causes the sweating. But I have crazy-high cortisol (can high cortisol do that?)
.... But then why am I cold when hot?
This thing is a flamin minefield and I have a brain made of play-doh. I've probably missed something important out... so you'll have to ask.
ps. Sorry if I seem like a random newbie asking for advice without inputting anything myself first. In my defence I've been reading this forum for ages and usually get the info I need from searching. You guys know everything
