Body temp

I'm concerned about my body temperature. Internal heat with no sweat. I was diagnosed last year with hypothyroidism & I'm still in process of getting meds regulated every three months. I currently take 50mcg but wondered if these symptoms could go away once on correct dose. I've had this issue for two years now. First was put on premarin thinking it was menopause but no change. Discontinued hormones & then last year blood work showed hypothyroidism.

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

A symptom of hypothyroidism is actually feeling cold, rather than an internal heat. So we cannot say if this internal heat you are feeling is connected to your thyroid condition. It may be but it's not a usual symptom. However, "internal heat" is certainly something that can be caused by thyroid disorders.

Menopause could still be the culprit - your hormone replacement therapy may not have helped - did you try different dosages or just one?

In some people, diabetes could be the cause or GERD (acid reflux).

I think it's a good idea to keep trying to regulate your thyroid numbers. It can take many tries. Talk to your doctor about this internal heat to see what she/he can do about it.

Please keep us posted.
