Is this pre-menopause or something else?

Postby jmrutlan » Sun Mar 25, 2007 9:39 pm

Hi all, newbie here.

Just this past year I started having what feels like hot flashes. A couple of years ago my doctor said that I have sub-clinical hyperthyroidism. I had a hysterectomy when I was 30 (I'm 45 now), and still have one ovary. Aside from the hot flashes, I don't have any other symptoms of menopause. How do I know if it's pre-menopause or is my sub-clinical hyperthyroidism turning into actual hyperthyroidism?

First of all welcome to the forum!! Lots of great info!! Your Dr. can do some tests to rule out what's going on (or not). It'll be helpful to print out the list of 35 symptoms and chekc off the ones that apply as well as how often etc and take it with you to your appt. , I hate it when I'm leaving an appt., getting in the car and realizing that I haven't addressed something with my Dr.
