OK .. it is HOT outside today for many areas .. what is the temp by you AND does it affect your thyroid condition?

Normally I would say it doesn't do anything, but lately ............... I find I am more short tempered and running much hotter than before the Synthroid but who really knows .............

Maybe 85?  But that's very hot for Seattle.  When it gets to 100 here... because of the high water content in us Seattlites... we all melt! ;-P  I  have a lower melting point than most since TT.

It is a furnace here in Arizona. We are happy with our cold snap. It is currently 103.  I can't really gage temperature as my body thermostat is shot-hot and cold and hot again. Depends on the minute.

Nearing 90 and very humid here in Upstate NY.  

I remember not being able tolerate any kind of heat at all during my "hyper" summer.  I didn't know why then, but it sure makes sense now.

The summer after my TT, I was a touch hypo and was always cold, even in heat like this.  I have to say I liked THAT part, but not the 10 pounds I gained that summer (I always take off 10 or 15 pounds in the summer).

Now that my levels are somewhat normal (for me, anyway), I can take the heat, but not the humidity.  Give me 80 degrees and no humidity any day!

95 with heat index of 104 or so.  HUMID is how the weather always is in Louisiana!  My thyroid swells with heat, so go figure.

Hotter than snot here in Fort Worth, I think we hit 102 today.  And I do think it does affect me more than it used to. My kids play soccer and it's all I can do to sit there and watch without feeling like I'm burning up alive.

I find that if it is hot and humid I feel like a brick is on my chest.  I have no energy what so ever.  I retreat inside and then I am fine.  My poor garden...I hear it calling me "WEED ME"
