Hot Flashes/malaise/shakiness/weight loss/cold and hot at the same time?

For the last 2 months, I thought I was going crazy or hitting menopause! I am 33, going through a very stressful phase in life, lack appetite, thinner than normal, feel extremely agitated although I am on anxiety medication.  I want to feel like myself again, feel good, have a good thermostat, and have energy. My main complaint is fatigue. I have never felt so tired and moody in my life. My TSH was double the normal amount, then later labs showed normal results! I am at a loss:( Please help!

I saw other posts here and wondered if anyone had looked in Chiari Malformation? http://www.wichiaricenter.org/?gclid=COHlie304LICFU6mPAod7UYADw

I am a thyroid disease sufferer and I would bet my bottom dollar that's whats going on with you. Your levels can show up high, and then normal. See an Endo Doc as soon as possible.

The TSH is high when you are low in thyroid hormone. This will give you a lot of fatigue until you are given thyroid meds. So, i think you need to see your doctor for meds.

FYI
I think you may find that you also have to have thyroid supplements to get your TSH back up to normal. They usually give you synthroid in the U.S.
It should make you feel more energetic. Then you will have to be retested until you stabilize and get the right amount. Too much Synthroid will also make you hyper and hard to sleep. You have to find that delicate balance.
keep us posted.
