I am 36 years old and since I started on synthroid I have been having hot flashes. I do not think I am going into menapause as my family members didn't until they were in their fifties. Could this be a side effect?
I had "hot flash" type symptoms when my doctor increased my dosage. My previous dose.. I was cold, my hands/feet/ butt were always real cold.. dangerously cold in winter. When I started heating up I didn't know how to cool down.. I was never hot before. Still having over heating problems in full sun, and learning how to stay hydrated in summer. The hot flashes did ease. It takes your body months to adjust to new meds or increases. If it continues to be a problem after a month or better talk to your doctor about rechecking. It's better to have your t3/t4 and tsh tested. Hope you get to feeling better.
