Excessive Sweating ... Can Hypo Thyroid Change To Hyper?

25 October 2014 - 08:34 AM

Hi everyone,

It has been awhile since I have been on the forum ... it seemed I lived on here when I was first diagnosed.   :D  You were all such a great help.  Thank you!!!

 

I will be 7 years gluten free in March 2015.  I have been feeling great, lost 40 pounds, more active than I had ever been.  Life was good!

 

BUT now ... I have been having spells of excessive sweating on the head area ... forehead gets covered in sweat and hair gets very damp.  I had been diagnosed with Hypothyroidism in December 2008, a year after I heard about Celiac.  I am also on Estrogel so don't think it is menopause.  But a doctor told me I should not be on Estrogen and I cut it in half for a couple weeks and couldn't take it so went back up to full dose.  It is since that time that I am having the excessive sweating.  When I was having menopausal symptoms they were not like this.

 

Also I have been having diarrhea quite often which is unusual.

 

My question is .... is it possible to be Hypothyroid and also Hyperthyroid?  Or, is it possible that because of being gluten free I no longer need the Synthroid so my thryoid is elevated?   It would be nice.   :D   I am due for blood tests and I do have a doctor appointment on Monday for my B12 shot so I will ask him but was wondering if anyone else has had this problem.

 

Thanks in advance for you help.
