Just curious if anyone who is hyper and on antithyroid meds experiences cold intolerance?
I'm only on 2.5mg Methimazole and don't feel bad but I'm almost always freezing, unless I'm bundled in bed under tons of blankets. I've been hypo and remember the deep bone chilling cold I'd feel at times. My numbers are good, other than low TSH. Will check it again next week, but if I stop meds my TSH will probably drop again.
I wonder if the nodule is only inconsistently shooting out too much thyroxine? Maybe I'm flipping? Another note. I had TPO antibodies that have dropped to almost normal. Could I have had undiagnosed Hashi's? I had RAI uptake scan and it showed my thyroid to be normal, other than the one nodule taking up more iodine than the rest of my gland. But my uptake percentage was really good, showing my thyroid is functioning normally (other than one hot nodule which is shrinking) Could it be burning out? So confusing.
I never had bad hypo or hyper symptoms, if any at all that I recall. Doc says I'm subclinical hyper now and to stay on meds and keep checking #'s.
Anyone have a hot nodule burn out or shrink? Anyone being hyper suffer from being cold?
