I am feeling warmer too, but I don't know if it is because of the iodine or the warmer days. So taking the Iodoral before bed doesn't keep you up? I did not have a good experience with that. I couldn't hardly sleep, and when I did finally sleep, I had horrible nightmares.

You feeling warmer may in fact be because you are warmer - a symptom of hyperthyroid. Measure your body temperature before getting up in the morning to see if you are slightly above normal.
… should be between 97.8 – 98.2. If it’s higher, you may be hyperthyroid, and if it’s lower, you are most likely hypothyroid. He also see this:

Light or absent menstrual periods
Fast heart rate
Warm moist skin
Staring gaze (bug-eyed)
More on hyperthyroid:
[quote]In healthy people, the thyroid makes just the right amounts of two hormones, T4 and T3, which have important actions throughout the body. These hormones regulate many aspects of our metabolism, eventually affecting how many calories we burn, how warm we feel, and how much we weigh. In short, the thyroid "runs" our metabolism.

If you think you are hyperthyroid, you should see a good doctor: How to choose a good doctor:

Two other thoughts:
1) Are you taking the ATP Cofactors and ALL of the required supplements?
ATP cofactors are especially important for thyroid conditions in clearing pathways, and selenium is VITAL for your thyroid to prevent autoimmune symptoms.
2) Try reducing back to 1/2-iodoral & do the salt flush in case you are showing detox symptoms:

Itching is a detox symptom, so is brain fog. Detox Symptoms
You might try cutting back on iodine dosage & do the salt flush.
Tell me more about your itching. Where does it itch? Are there welts ( as like a mosquito bite)? Does it itch more at night?

The itching has been going on over ten years and I have seen four or five doctors. All had differing opinions, and I am still itching!!! Brain fog too, but I will admit it has gotten worse lately. However, as I said above, I have been beyond stressed this whole year, and I know that has contributed to the fog.
Yes, the itching is worse at night. Tell you what, I'll pm you since this is off topic.
