Post what are the symptoms of hyper thyroid? think i might have it ,but not sure

Hi everyone, I have been going through a very tough time of being sick. I been feeling sick with everything you can possibly name in the past three months. So i'm trying to rule out what is going on with me, first they thought i had ms now there thinking i might have lymes disease but they havent ruled it out yet. So i was wondering what some of the symptoms of a thyroid disorder are.
P.S i hope every one that reads this that has a thyroid disorder starts to feel better soon i know what its like to feel like hell.

You might also have CFIDS, which makes you feel very sick. It is often diagnosed by ruling out other illnesses. The CFIDS foundation has a web site that is very helpful in helping one to determine if they fit the criteria for the "official" diagnosis.

Here are some symptoms of the two main types of thyroid disease. If you haven't had thyroid tests done, it might be a good idea. Many doctors overlook it when considering the source of illnesses that exhibit many symptoms. The basic thyroid tests you need would be TSH, free T4, free T3, and thyroid antibodies. Then you have to make sure that the doctor who runs the tests knows how to interpret them.
Hope this helps you and that you feel better very soon.
