    Tatezi, I was never sweaty like I am now before treatment. Since I began 15 weeks ago...all I do is sweat. So far, my thyroid numbers are well within normal.

      Tatezi,

      I was never sweaty like I am now before treatment. Since I began 15 weeks
      ago...all I do is sweat. So far, my thyroid numbers are well within normal.
      I sweat the worse in the mornings. I am also sensitive to direct
      sunlight...can't stand it.

      I used to be colder than everyone I know, but now I am by far the hottest.
      I am driving up my electricity bill and freezing my family out of the house.

      Edie

      Normal TSH (what they measure for hypothyroid) is .5 to 5.5. Mine was always fine until rebetron blew out my thyroid several months ago and it jumped to 110.

        Normal TSH (what they measure for hypothyroid) is .5 to 5.5. Mine was
        always fine until rebetron blew out my thyroid several months ago and it
        jumped to 110. But hypothyroid (underactive) causes you to be cold while
        hyperthyroid (overactive) causes heat. Go figure....all I know is that
        up until about 7 years ago I didn't mind the heat at all and now I
        really suffer from it.

        Hey, maybe it's age that does it <g> and it has nothing to do with our
        hep or livers.

          tat says <<Normal TSH (what they measure for hypothyroid) is .5 to 5.5. >>

          If you'll read the newer stuff on thyroid, they found that for women esp,
          anything above a 2 can cause hypothyroid problems. It did with me. I was
          5.75, my test said normal was 6. As my thyroid slowly lowers after
          treatment, my symptoms are slowly going away too.

          Just becuase they say something is "normal" doesn't always mean it's normal
          for you.

          So be careful, check things out, find a thyroid specialist if you think it
          could be that.

          Sometimes, it's just the hep and some things we have to deal with it the
          best we can.

          If the sweats really bother you, see a specialist :)

            different stages of liver damage. Unless it has something to do with how
            hard our immune systems are fighting. It baffles me. For years I thought
            it was just that I was getting older....until folks on the list started
            talking about experiencing the same thing.

            It's weird, isn't it? Can't figure out the connection....

                Pat...

                If I remember right (and with this brain fog that isn't always the
                case), the TSH is the hormone the brain produces that takes over when
                the thyroid isn't doing it's job. I think it's T9 or something they
                measure for hyperthyroid....at least that's what it is in cats.

                Now this happened to me some months ago, so research might have made
                some new findings. It is common for older wimmin to become
                hypothyroid....not to mention those of us on rebetron. And ofcourse
                each person is an individual. I think Claudine said when her TSH was 13
                she could barely move....yet I was just a tad tired with mine at 110.

                BTW, someone talked about sensitivity to the sun. I remember when I
                first signed up with Commitment to Care they warned me of sensitivity to
                the sun. I've not experienced it but it must be common if it's something
                they warn you about.

                    I think whoever 'decided' this was nuts! Everyone I
                    know who has hypothyroidism seems to be heat
                    sensative! I began to be extremely sensitive to heat
                    several years before I was diagnosed with HCV and
                    interferon kicked my thyroid gland over the edge. I
                    would be drenched in sweat when everone around me was
                    cool and dry. Either heat or activity would start me
                    sweating. And when my thyroid gland did stop
                    functioning while I was on treatment I experienced
                    symptoms of both hypo and hyper thyroidism. In fact, I
                    probably had more of the so-called hyperthyroid
                    symptoms than hypothyroidism. I am still sensative to
                    the heat and seem to sweat more than others around me,
                    but since my TSH down to UNDER 1 I don't have nearly
                    the problem with it that I used to. I suspect I was
                    experiencing subclinical hypothyroid symptoms for
                    years before it actually showed up in blood tests.

                        Dear Tatezi,
                        I'm exactly the opposite from Edie. Last winter I paid a $1250.00 natural
                        gas bill for
                        December and decided to bring out the flannel nightgowns, socks and anything
                        else I could find to put on. I have a friend who is like Edie, we can't
                        even visit each other very much, because I freeze to death in her house and
                        she cooks in mine. She walked around last winter in t-shirts and jeans. I
                        reluctantly packed my sweat suits last week (we're moving). If we don't move
                        in August, I'll have to unpack them. Oh well. Nobody can predict what your
                        thyroid will do with this disease. I'll trade you my heat bill for your A/C
                        bill :-) Anne

                          I am driving up my electricity bill and freezing my family out of the house.

                          Edie,

                          I had to laugh at this because it is so true. My husband has the air
                          conditioning so cold that today it is 95, 105 with the humidity outside and
                          I am sitting here in sweat pants and a sweat shirt. I do seem to change
                          clothes a lot from inside to out. He hates sweating the way he does. Just
                          one of the things you learn to live with while fighting this disease and the
                          side effects from the treatment. Hope your doing better and am grateful for
                          the chuckle.

                            I think the statue of limitations is up in two years on your work comp case.
                            I am not totally sure but that was what we were told a few weeks ago and
                            maybe all states are different I do not know. So hurry we had not idea. I
                            wish my mother in law was in Florida right now but she is is Illinois at the
                            moment or I could get that information for you on the phone book - I am
                            trying to get a hold of her now to see if she might have taken one of the
                            phone books home from the area you are talking about when she left last year.
                            I will let you know if she can get it for us - she lives there 5 months out
                            of the year. Hope your doing well.

                            oh the sun thing, I was sensitive to it long before I did treatment as well as the heat, yet told over and over my thyroid was just fine. So I have to assume,

                              as the heat, yet told over and over my thyroid was just fine. So I have to
                              assume, since there's nothing they say they can do for it, that it's the
                              hep.

                              In fact, my gastro said some heppers do have sun/heat sensitivity, even when
                              not on treatment.

                              I'm getting much better, but, man, between work and driving with no a/c and
                              no a/c at home except in one room, I'm barely making this week. If the no
                              a/c continues, I may have to quit work :(
