I have the following symptoms:heart racing, tired, weight loss (although eating a lot) and breathlessness. I thought these all had to do with stress, breastfeeding and just generally over doing it. Which of course still could be the case.
Back to my original question of the pain I am getting, it is just under my ribs on the right side and is very sharp and painful. As far as I know there is no link between this pain and hyperthyrodism but thought I would check here before I go back for more tests.
Thanks for taking the time to read and reply. I may be back when I get the Thyroid results.
Which tests have you had done? Like someone else mentioned you could
have post partum thyroiditis. Did the doc palpate your neck to see if
About the right upper quadrant pain you have the liver,gb and right kidney
all in that vicinity also the duodenum(the first portion of the small intestine)
which is a common site for peptic ulcers. You may need more of a work up
