Hi everyone. Wonder if anyone else has noticed that they are experiencing very hot flushes to the head, in the last few weeks. I have these to the point that my hair soaks wet and my face literally pours with sweat. Worsens after have been active. I have a friend who is exactly the same and we are both taking mercury pharma levothyroxine (Eltroxin) and I am taking 100mcg plus half a 25mcg tablet every day and she is on slightly higher dose. We have both noticed over the past few weeks that the 25mcg tablet is larger than it used to be. Have compared them and the older ones are definitely smaller and were a bit of a problem to break in half with a tablet cutter. More the size of the 50s I think but can't be certain. Has anyone else noticed this or had any similar symptoms? I would be grateful for any comments. I have tried to put my dose down as I thought I might be taking a bit too much but unfortunately got hypo symptoms again (I know half a tablet is so little but it absolutely works for me!!) i have also been having a few palpitations and had a recent blood test which 'was in range'. Also had a nodule drained of fluid to get to a solid bit for analysis as an FNA came back inconclusive as it found some 'dodgy' cells which were 'changing'. I am actually feeling a little better since the drainage and some pain has gone at the top of my breastbone. Anyone else had anything similar please. Sorry for long post and thank you for any help. I didn't even have hot flushes when I was menopausal!!
