I am constantly cold and shiver a lot; especially after breastfeeding my baby

I had a baby 2 weeks ago and I am constantly cold and shiver a lot; especially after breastfeeding my baby. I am also having headaches regularly for the past few days and sweat profusely at night (I wake up at night covered in sweat). In addition, I get sharp pains in my breast frequently through out the day with out warning( kind of feels like intense “let down” reflex) I was wondering if these symptoms are normal or could I be developing an infection ?(I am not running a fever ) . I don’t remember experiencing these symptoms with my other children. I am also currently on Synthroid 75mcg for hypothyroidism which I developed during pregnancy . Could these symptoms be related to the medication perhaps? Thank you so much for your help.

welcome to HealthcareMagic
The pain in breast is due to milk flow in your breast.Thyroid medicines do have few adverse effects like sweating ;headache;flushing;palpitations;nervous tremors.As for the cold & shivering please see if you have temperature after the shivering is over.Presently you need to get a thyroid & blood sugar levels test done & consult your doctor who started on Synthroid ;after the reports he will be able to advise better.
Take care
