Hashimotos and heat intolerance

From: dschuck1227 - 3 years 44 weeks ago

I am so frustrated with being hot and sweaty all the time. Basic things like a walk down the hall at work leave me sweating as well as being very cold to the touch but still so hot internally. I was diagnosed with Hashimotos clinically (my antibodies are not positive) and my TSH/T4/T3 have all been in a great range for years now. The only symptoms that really wreak havoc on my life is being so hot! I will roll my windows down or have the air on when it is 50-60 degrees outside. Does anyone have a similar issue or have fixed their heat issue? I'm at the end of my rope!

Do you find this discussion helpful?

Is this good advice?

Boy, can I identify with this (tho I am not cold to the touch). I love to go outside without a jacket when it's in the 30's. It feels so refreshing! In addition to the air conditioning, I have a fan right by my bed blowing directly on me. Any exertion makes me so hot. And what's weird is that I used to be very cold natured. Also, I never had a single hot flash or night sweat during menopause. Unfortunately, I cannot pin point when the changeover occurred. I don't really know if it's my thyroid or not. I've noticed that heat intolerance and/or excess sweating are listed as side effects on 2 or 3 of my medications. Sorry I don't have an answer for you - just commiserating.
