Last year I would get overheated really quickly. I would eat a meal and end up having hot sweats after. Exercises were hard because I would get too hot and feel like I would faint. It would be zero degrees outside and I would need the window open!
I always knew that this was happening because I was overweight but I didn’t want to admit that to myself.
I have had an under active thyroid for many years and I take medication for it everyday. I was told by doctors that I will always have it and I will need to take my medication for life.
When I last had my blood test the result came back that my T3 and T4 are working. This means that my thyroids are working again. I am still however taking my medication as I will need to see the doctor about my levels.
Since my thyroids have started working again my hot flushes have gone. It has however sent me totally the other way.
The summer is here along with the warmer weather. However I am always cold I go around the house with my thick dressing gown and slippers on and then use a quilt on the sofa. I am at night using my electric blanket which never gets used in the summer.
I have been told that because my thyroids are now working it will take time to regulate the temperature in my body because it’s not had to do that for a long time. So it looks like I am going to be cold for a while!
