Feel warm/hot on the face and back of the neck, stress. Have thyroid cancer. On Synthroid. Cause and cure?

For the last few months I have had this feeling of being hot in the back of my neck and feeling warm in my face as well. I am a 37 year old female with a history of thyroid cancer. I have also been having severe anxiety. In the last few years I have been under overwhelming stress. I have also been running a low-grade fever (99) for several months as well. When I have the feeling it is nearly constant and will last for days at a time. I have an endocrinologist appointment next week. I still have half of my thyroid and am on 75mcg of Synthroid a day.

Thyroid cancer can be of different types. You should have mentioned the exact subtype. After thyroid surgery there are possibility of radioiodine ablation . You should have mentioned the detailed treatment history. Anyway, thyroid hormone replacement has to be done and this measure has been taken to you. But the exact dosing of thyroxin should be maintained based on the TSH level. Your symptoms may be due to this. Consult an endocrinologist for proper dosing.
