Thank you Kimberly and dgregory for you messages.
I'm in my 30s but I guess I could be having hot flashes due to other than thyroid hormones
I will mention it to my Endo. I has such a hard time sleeping last night. I go to sleep and wake up feeling hot and then I can't go back to sleep. It is very frustrating. I so wish it was winter already. I figured it was thyroid related b/c they went away for a while while on Methimazole but now they are back …
Thank you again. I'll mention it to my Endo.
~ Fellow GD patient diagnosed June 2012 with a non-existent TSH, elevated fT3 and fT4, and a TSI of 4.5. On Methimazole 30mg/day for the first 8 weeks. On Methimazole 10mg/day for the next 6 weeks. On Methimazole 5mg/day for a week and a half. On Methimazole 5mg every 4 days for a month. On Methimazole 2.5mg/day starting Nov 15. In Nov labs showed a normal fT4, a normal TSH, and a TSI of 3.2. As of May 2013, still taking Methimazole 2.5mg/day and labs are all normal. TSI is unknown. Diet: Gluten and yeast free. Love to read and learn. Very interested in the immune part of GD ~
