So I'm a freezer. I took my temp this morning and it was 97.12, mind you I've been taking progesterone for 5 days and there has been no temp jump. I'm assuming that since the progesterone is past the expiration date that the pharmacy puts on there (generally they date it out a year from when you get the script and it doesn't acutally expire until later) it's either A)not working or B) my thyroid is crapping out on me or C) a little bit of both. Honestly I have a feeling about it being my thyroid, I've been utterly exhausted and noticed my fingers and toes are freezing even when it's warm out or I'm physically warm. I was doing research and PCOS and hypothyroidism (and more often autoimmune thyroditis) are related. This definitely makes me want to see the endocrinologist because I'm aware of my subclinical hypothyroidism and if this is due to hypothyroid as much as I don't want to I will be more than happy to take the synthetic thyroid hormone. It's frustrating knowing that I don't actually know what's going on with me and I don't know how soon I'll be able to find anything out.
