Unhappy I don't know what is going on,!!!!

I was in the Dr.s in like May and she told me I have an over active thyroid. I have really bad symtoms from it. Well I was just in the dr.s last week and my blood work was fine. What my levels are I have no clue. But the thing is I stll get all the weird feelings I had before. I am still going to the specialist in Oct. I am just wondering if this is normal for this to happen. I am confused. Is this gone or is it just kinda hidding right now? Also I am finding I am getting lots of heart pelpitations. I take bata blockers so I don't understand why this is happening. I get lots of them. Do I need a higher dose? And if my throid says it is normal again why is this happening. Or could it be I am turning to hypo? So many questions.... I also still have a nodual in my thyroid. I don't understand does this thyroid stuff always go back and forth? Thanks for listening....

Hi and welcome!
Can you be a little more specific? I understand that you were diagnosed hyperthyroid, correct?

Were you given any medications to take in May when you were diagnosed? If so, what are the names of the meds and what are the dosages you are taking?

Re: I don't know what is going on,!!!!

The first thing you need to do is get a copy of the actual lab reports of your initial thyroid tests when you were diagnosed and also a copy of the latest labs. Get the actual lab report...it will have the name of the tests you had, the normal ranges for that specific test and the result of your blood test.

October is a heck of a long time to wait after being dx'd in May!! Thank goodness you at least have beta blockers!

If I were you, I would do some research and find symptom lists of both HYPER and HYPO thyroidism. Many of the symptoms cross over and will be on both lists....like hair loss, anxiety, etc. Check off the symptoms that you are currently feeling and see where you stand based on the symptoms list.

Sometimes with thyroid disease we can swing hyper, then hypo....do a search for Hashitoxicosis and see what you can come up with...that might explain what is happening to you.
