Would clammy hands and feet be because of my thyroid?  my hands and feet also get really cold sometimes. would this also be thyroid related?

Can be, check w/ Dr.: The thyroid controls the thermoregulation of the body, so often when people have cold hands and feet in the dead of summer, that's a tip off! However, other things must be taken into account as well. You have a history of thyroid cancer, headache, and thyroidectomy. So make sure your thyroid panel is evaluated carefully by your doctor, and levothyroxine is optimized. ...Read more

Experienced a wave of anxiety the last few weeks and now that im more calm i have frequent mild sweaty or clammy hands. Normal?

Experienced a wave of anxiety the last few weeks and now that im more calm i have frequent mild sweaty or clammy hands. Normal?

Not unusual, but: Normal? No. You're fortunate to be past the wave, but even these milder anxiety symptoms are just that - not terrible, but not normal. You can probably learn how to lessen them or avoid them in CBT therapy or meditation. It doesn't seem severe enough to risk Rx side effects, but some Dr's may suggest that. Think hard before you do that. Best wishes! ...Read more

Pt c/o sudden weight loss, "panic attacks, " difficulty breathing, stuffy sinuses, cold clammy hands. History of heavy etoh and htn. Wt s ds?

Really?: Primary hypertension is not common (less than 10%) before age 40. Sudden weight loss is also rare. These two "facts" need to be confirmed before jumping to any conclusions. If leave out these two items, what's left is heavy alcohol, and a list of anxiety symptoms. Alcohol withdrawal tends to cause anxiety symptoms, increased blood pressure, so when did this "pt" have his/her last alcohol drink? ...Read more
