Question: I have constant trembling and cold sweats could this b related to a thyroid condition? I've been told I have slightly low thyroid but have stopped taking medication due to side effects. Can another condition cause this like menopause? I do also have epilepsy that is currently completely controlled.

About thyroid pathology;

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking!
I can understand your concern.
The symptoms you reported can be due to thyroid pathology, as you left the treatment due to side effects, you should check the thyroid hormones. Their level will give us information rather thyroid can justify the symptoms you reported, or not.
Please attach the results of TSH,FT4 and FT3 for further information.
Best wishes,
Dr.Mirjeta
