For about the last 5 weeks I've been experiencing redness and sweating in my hands and feet. My skin has also been feeling very sensitive. On some occasions when I get out of bed my whole legs were red and sweating, although this has stopped happening.
I went to the doctor and have had some blood tests which showed that I was high on one of the Thyroid related readings. I didn't note which element was high but it had a normal range of 12.0 - 22.0. I assume this is Free T4 as I've seen this range on various websites.
My reading was only 22.2, so not much above the high limit, but the last time I had a blood test in 2011 it was 14.0 .... so it has clearly increased.
The doctor wanted me to retest in 3 months to see if there is a trend upwards.
Do the symptoms I'm experiencing match what others experience with a slightly high T4 reading?
