I am rarely at a normal temperature. Day time I'm too hot but at night I am usually freezing. I can not understand why day should be so different to night! I'm always arguing with my husband about the heating thermostat especially lately as he is on medication that is known to make some people feel the cold more. At night I usually have an extra blanket over just me.
My thyroid problems were blamed on my premature menopause - I was mid thirties when they started. I had no family history of early menopause but my gp would not listen. She did not believe in the menopause tense believing it was a waste of money as results were most often inconclusive. After 11 lots of HRT tablets and two patches, I finally said enough was enough. Had I not been feeling so ill, I would have stopped them much earlier.
My gp then said my problems must be psychological and wanted me on anti depressants. I refused. I changed to a different surgery and found a gp who did believe in the menopause test. It showed conclusively that I was not in the menopause. At least that explained why HRT made me so ill. By that time I'd wasted over four years of my life.
When I did eventually go through the menopause I sailed through it. I had no problems and never needed HRT but it did once again give doctors a reason for all my health issues.
