I Zumba for exercise. It's a fun form of intense cardio. But I've noticed some changes lately. I warm up, I perspire appropriately, but my body doesn't seem to warm up. In fact, my hands and feet get so cold that they turn blue! Additionally, I've been waking up in the mornings with various symptoms; foot and/or lower leg cramps, tingling/numbness in my feet and/or hands, and now and again I'll wake up with one or two or more finger joints frozen either fully extended or fully flexed!!! What the? Have any of you ever experienced this?View Thread
"Normal" is different for everyone. Find out where you feel best inside the "normal" range. Many years ago my Endocrinologist said young women (pre-menopause) seem to do best when the TSH is on the low end. Transports hormones better. Now that theory may have changed over the years...Ask your Doc.View Thread
