I was wondering if anyone felt this way-----I have hot feeling not like hot flashed but more a burning up feeling all over my body inside my skin within minutes of waking up. This happens after naps or when I get up in the am. Then of course I have hot flashed all during the day. Does anyone else ever have this burning feeling (skin just feel heated)? I am not even sure if this is related to Hash's?
That sensation can come from Hashi's AND Graves.
Have you had antibodies test done and thyroid function?
I usually have hot feelings when my FT3 is a little high but the burning sensation I used to get (under the ball of the foot) was from Hyperthyroidism before RAI.
If you are on a T4 med...get yr levels checked.....you could be overmedicated.
It sounds like your FT3 may be a little too high.
You didnt start taking the Iodine, did you?
I remember a previous posting where you was asking about it.
I have severe heated body temputures as well. I am sure they are called hot flashes but i have about 20 day. will start sweating and body starts to get red blatches all over face, neck, arms, legs. One day my skinned smelled burnt like i had laid in a tanning bed! Heart racing as well. That is from having too much synthriod medicine. I hate synthriod!! I do better on the generic but i am about to try naturethriod. I had to stop the synthriod for 30 days to let it get out of my system before i can start the new meds. I have Hashi's with goiter and several nodules. Hashi's is an auto immune and you can not just go by what your numbers read on blood work. I found a doctor that will listen to me and agreed to try me on the naturethriod even though my free t3 was in normal range. I can deal with fatigue, moods, aches/pains but i can not deal with hot flashes!! They are awful and make you feel sick! i had thyroid toxicity from the medicine so be very careful cause that can give you a heart attack!
I am having hot surges all the time as well... My legs burn from the knees down and just have a weird sensation in them.. almost feel tight.. my tongue burns (burning mouth).. I have low b12 and low ferritin as well.... All docs thought I had thyroid issues but there is my labs:
On Jan 21/13... ANA Positive with antibody titer POS SPECKLED 1:80
all antibody tests were negative.
Anti Thyroblobulin AB <20 (0-99)
Anti MIscrosomal AB (I think is thyroid as well) <10 (0-40) Any ideas?
