Synthroid and excessive sweating

Common Questions and Answers about Synthroid and excessive sweating


Avatar n tn She takes Synthroid, Advair 100/50 and as needed Zyrtec, and Aleve (for spondyloarthropathy). Any idea if the sweating could be caused by the thyroid. We're due for a TSH next month to see if the meds are still on track; Hands and feet are still freezing. Thanks.
Avatar m tn I had to stop my synthroid myself to see if it was causing the excessive sweating and it was. The bad, excessive sweating stopped!!! Was a happy woman. 6 months later DR tested and wanted me back on Synthroid, and I said only the lowest dose I will try. Its only been 3 days on 25mg/1 a day and I'm sweating again!!! I just can't understand how one low dose pill can be so damaging to me....
Avatar n tn I was attracted to this string because of its title, "Hypothyroidism and excessive sweating." While I appreciate all the time folks have taken commenting on this subject, I can't follow all that has been written. Can/will anyone address, in simple language, the following: Most of the information regarding thyroid trouble indicates that sweating can accompany hyperthyroidism and sensitivity to cold goes with hypothyroidism.
Avatar n tn I have low thyroid and take Synthroid for that. I can not get dressed in the mornings because the sweat just keeps coming even as I am trying to towel off. My hair won't dry. I set in front of a fan and finally will stop sweating. Get dressed - but this can happen any time - I can be just setting and start to seat again. The moisture just runs down my face, neck, chest, arms, etc.
Avatar f tn I know it's been a while since your post about the excessive sweating and getting Botox injections. How did that go? Any relief from the sweating?
Avatar f tn brain fog, insomnia (no sleep for weeks, double doses of various sleeping pills did not work), excessive generalized sweating, and painful sex. Three years ago, these 4 continuing, I became nauseated, dizzy, faint, major indigestion (never experienced previously), no energy. I can be up and moving around for 70 seconds before the symptoms become unbearable. Two ent's say my ears are not the problem. The painful sex has been resolved with an estrogen cream.
Avatar n tn My expierence has been if my synthroid dose is too much I have excessive sweating, but if my levels are lowered No problems (with sweating). It seem for me that in order to feel alert and not loose hair I have to have my tsh level on the low side-but the catch is I have to put up w?sweating easier and feeling anxious. Do you know what your last tsh level was and why he lowered your dose??
Avatar n tn I thought that my symtoms were due to menopause as I had been on HRT for 5 years but then came off due to concerns after study not proven so good. My symtoms are excessive hot flashes and sweating(getting worse as I age) weight gain, feelings of my heart pounding in my chest when I lay down, not being able to sleep, being tired and depressed. I am just wondering if anyone has had this experience of lowering their dose due to aging and menopause.
Avatar n tn We have had numerous blood draws done to check levels and have changed his medication up and down until the tsh and t4 levels look good on paper. My son was doing great on the medication until the last change. He is now on alternated doses one higher dose one day and a lower dose the next. I can tell you exactly how he will be on each dose day. On the high dose day he will be very hard to redirect and has really bad temper tantrums along and a nap or going to bed forget about it!
Avatar n tn I'm not sure which is the cause and which is the effect! My excessive sweating is not under the arms, or feet or hands. Instead it seems localized above the neck, which I found is called "cranio facial hyperhidrosis".
Avatar m tn Hi - my mom is 80 and she has been on Synthroid for quite some time. Her doctor is reducing her medication because of bone density and her age. She is in excellent health. Since they have reduced her medication she has had horrible depression. Is this something anyone else has experienced? Also, after reading several posts, I noticed that a lot of people mention that the T3 and T4 levels are important. I am asking for myself on this one.
Avatar f tn and she wanted to keep me on Synthroid .125mg but added 5mcg of Liohyronine right away. I got so upset and called the Dr. and got in to see her after I complained of side effects 10/23. She ran a couple of blood tests right away on 10/10 Results are: TSH 0.102 range 0.350 - 5.000 FT3 3.0 range 2.2 - 4.0 FT4 Reflex 1.2 0.8 - 1.5 She likes these results and wants to test me in Dec. with no changes.
Avatar f tn 25 and the Levothyroxine still had me so jittery and dizzy I was vomiting and he put me on Synthroid and told me to take .25 after 2 hrs of taking it I was falling asleep in my office so I called him immediately and told him I was fighting just to stay awake so he said I needed to go and take another half because the dosage wasn't enough so I took another half and within 30 minutes I was awake and able to finish my day at work.
Avatar f tn Hello, Excessive sweating is called hyperhidrosis and thyroid causes like hyperthyroidism is an important cause. Maybe the dose of Synthyroid is more and the dose needs to be adjusted by your physician. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar f tn They weren't helping my menstruation anyway, and I was sweating and losing hair. My TSH was at 1.04. I weaned myself off the Synthroid by October 2010. I was no longer on ANY meds. Fast forward to today, March 31, 2012...1.5 years post Ynthrod, and I still continue to lose hair daily. It has never stopped since back when I had no air loss but was put on thyroid meds. I have seen many specialists, all at a loss as to what is going on.
Avatar n tn I cant sleep and I feel like I'm going crazy. I have cold feet and cold hands but I am sweating and feel like I am burning up inside...its not a "hot flash" (Im only 24) and from my understanding hot flashes last for a few to 30 mins and leave. This hot inferno feeling lasts for HOURS. I have taken 3 showers today. I dont sleep at night. I just sweat and I feel like I'm crawling out of my skin. Is this because of the TT?
Avatar n tn I go to the toilet. Explosive diarrhea and sweating and weakness and faint feeling (some times I do faint or lean on something to keep me from falling over). Then after it's over I get very cold. I still feel a little weak but I feel much better. I drink lots of fluids and am a pretty healthy 25. I don't believe it's all separate diagnoses. Like the vaso vagal and then another one for the diarrhea and another one for the sweating etc.
Avatar n tn I feel awful after taking three pills of 100mcgs of the Levothyroxine. I am confused and sweating and fatigued. I have put in a call to my physician just now. This is awful, my neck looks large too. I hope I can get this straightened out. This forum is good for support Thanks!!
Avatar n tn would I have any side effect from toxicity? - my swelling did go away w/lasix and I no longer have a fast heartbeat nor excessive sweating or the other numerous side effects- thank goodness. Last Important Question, My Internist recommends removing my Thryroid to carry a baby - since I had 1 tubal & 3 misscarriages since '99 and my only tube is blocked, so I must go Invetro My Invetro Dr says NO-Awaiting Endo Dr opinion.

Avatar n tn I am a pre-med student trying to be a neurologist/psychiatrist and my excessive dreaming problem, as simple as it may seem, is making it so hard to reach my goal. The worst part is how hard it is to diagnose or figure out what exactly is going on in our brains. Loss of attentiveness, excessive dreaming, not to mention constant thinking and slight nerve twitching. It's all so frustrating.
Avatar n tn I take synthroid (0.2mg) and Metformen ER 500 mg. I have been juggling these meds (and many more) for years. I also have a great endocrinologist (after firing two horrible ones) who helps me with my meds. I take the synthroid just as soon as I wake up with water then try to avoid anything else for at least half an hour. I take the Metformen in the evening with all my other pills.
Avatar n tn A temperature of 97.9 was registered, but the entire body was abnormally hot coupled with excessive sweating asnd checked by a general practioner who diagnosed that there was no type of infection, such as a flu type bug. Any explanations?
Avatar f tn I was orginally diagnosed and treated as hypothyroid with Hashimotos. Was orginially on 25mcg of synthroid and 5mcg of Cytomel. Had to increase it to 88mcg Synthroid and 5mcg Cytomel twice a day. That was great for about four months but then started feeling bad again. Thus the recent visit to endo. She now has me taking more Cytomel as needed. Twice in the morning (5mcg each spaced out which is a real challenge with eating) and my usual 5mcg in the afternoon. Does that sound right?
Avatar n tn It was around this time that i developed breathing and swallowing problems. My throat would feel tight and heavy and i would feel dizzy. My doctor did an ultrasound but the results came back normal. A few months later he sent me to an ENT. The ENT had me swallow a pill and did a few x-rays. The results came back normal. My doctor later reduced my synthroid dose to 50 mcg which i'm still on. That didn't help much. About a 2 months ago i started getting panic attacks.
2033435 tn?1329947108 Since they provide more T3 than the thyroid gland produces, the well-replaced patient’s free T4 will be around the middle of its range or lower, and the FT3 will be high-“normal” or slightly high before the AM dose. Excessive thyroid dosing causes many negative symptoms, and overdosed patients do not feel well. I suggest lowering the dose in any patient who has developed insomnia, shakiness, irritability, palpitations, overheating, excessive sweating, etc.
Avatar f tn One method of treatment, that seems to fail consistantly, is to shut the thyroid down with Methimazole or Tapazol, and use replacement hormones like Synthroid or Armour to treat the drug induced Hypothyroid state. It can be very hard to diagnose. I was first diagnosed with a "slow thyroid" and put on Synthroid even though my chief complaints at the time all pointed toward Hyperthyroidism. My bloodwork said Hypo, so that's what I was treated for.
314532 tn?1206418709 My TSH just about tripled in 6 weeks. He switched me to Synthroid and increased my dose to .025 3 days a week and .050 4 days a week. I have been on this dose for 6 weeks now. While I don't have my most recent labs back I can tell you that my symptoms have not approved. I will see my endo next Thursday and get my labs then. I will post them once I have them. My question it normal for meds to just stop working and TSH to triple is 6 weeks?
Avatar n tn Talked to my endo about it but for obvious reasons he said there's no such thing and to get back on Synthroid. I searched the web and found the leading cause of Hypo is Hashimoto's, now, there are natural teas and food to help with that. Just wondering how do I know what's causing my Hypo? Is it somewhere in the test results or what?
