First i just want to tell you my experience and i hope you can give me your opinions. I was misdiagnosed for two years with hyperthyroidism. I never got skinny I actually gained weight being hyperthyroid. It was horrid. Finally the doctors diagnosed me when they check my thyroid antibodies and they where off the charts. My tsh was .10 by the time they realized it maybe hyperthyroidism. I had a huge goiter and felt horriable. Anxiety and mental angish was mainly my symptoms. It went into full blown graves after tramatic events took place. A year and a half ago I had my thyroid nuked
I had RAI done and never went too hypo. Ever since Ive not been myself. I get really fatigued easy and feel anxiety still. I have had symptoms of feeling hyper, anxiety, not really being able to sleep a full night threw, but getting so tired in the day i have to take naps. I also felt depressed. I know I usually feel good when my tsh is below 2.0 I went in because I wasnt feeling well and the docs said my tsh was 3.97! Yikes for me thats hypo! I noticed i am retaining water weight too. I am waiting to hear if they are going to raise my synthroid from 125 to maybe 137 or 150.
Should I feel better if they do? Its caused me so much fatigue i cant work at .moment and get panic attacks. How crazy is that? Panic attacks being on the road to hypo? I just want to feel better and be able to live life and not feel so darn drained. Its to the point where I think its effecting me mentally because I get tired and then i dont want to go out and do things for the fear of feeling weird or getting so tired I have to leave. Is this normal? I am also on zoloft. Could my numbers of changed because I forgot to take my synthroid a day, then three days later I forgot again, so about twice I forgot.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
