Work = hypothyroid?

I've been having hypothyroid symptoms lately (Cold hands, fatigue, etc.). So I decided to track my temps. This made me notice something interesting. At work (standard stressful corporate job) I frequently have cold hands. When I measure my temp I go sit in a conference room. The process of sitting alone in the more quiet conference room just breathing for 5 minutes causes my cold hands to warm up to normal every time. And my temps end up being around 99.

So my work is making my hypothyroid?

How fix?

Interesting. Did some reading on this and I have some of the symptoms.

Definitely not jumping to conclusions, that's why I put the question mark. I don't notice my nose at all, so i'm not sure. I really only notice my hands going hot and cold.

Thanks! Vitamin D levels are good and I supplement with magnesium. I think you are right about how I respond to it. I need to be better about that.

I retired last November and have been feeling astonishingly normal since then. I dread having to go back but all this meat is chewing up my savings.

Your allocation of food in the day may also be making this.

P5P deficiency can make it hard to turn fatty acids to forms that seem necessary in your situation. That's listed as a symptom in pyroluria also and that's mostly a sort of P5P deficiency. Stress is said to increase pyrroles which make P5P useless.

And as you guessed thyroid problems may also be related.

I'd suggest you take your corporate medical plan and get the free annual physical, have them run the blood tests, and find out whether your thyroid function is normal before jumping to conclusions.

Does your nose get cold too? I'm mildly hypothyroid but my dr said not to stress out about it. With me it's the nose before the hands.

Wish I could get some cold hands, god damn it's hot here.

Don't think of it as your work causing your issue, think of it as your reaction to your work which causes the issue. Stress is a really subjective thing, something that completely stresses one person out may be completely benign to another person. Work at reducing your stress responce to everyday activities, people seem to do this through meditation and mindfulness practices.

Please do note that this also may have a dietary cause if you're not eating or living propely, certain nutrient deficiencies could contribute to this issue. One that came to mind was magnesium or vitamin D which may make you react to stressers a bit more harshly.
