Any info would be appreciated

Just came back from endo and still no answers although he is willing to try to work w/me.Anyone hear of anything like this?? Oct 22, 2004 I went to bed feeling a little under the weather not real bad. Woke up next morning w/ huge painful thyroid(did not know it was thyroid at the time) Pain also in left side of neck and lower left jaw bone.Thought it was dental prob ended up having wisdom tooth and molar removed.No help. Felt totally drained, could not get out of bed, could not swallow but gained over 10 pds in 3 wks of not eating. Went to MD, said it was thyroid that was swollen,ran tests all came back normal. At this point felt so bad death would be welcomed.Went to naturalpath-dried blood analysis said viral & metal.Had all amalgams safely removed,thyroid starting to be less painfull still swollen(3mos into this)Thyroid slowly started to go down. Still to this day every 4-6wks thyroid swells for a week or so and I crask(no energy, moody,legs hurt)Then it goes away until the next round. Just went to endo-everything normal-no antibodies-pit normal-low end of cortisol range-put on low dose of Armour &Cortef-Awake for 24 hrs rapid heartbeat.Anyone hear of something similar?I would appreciate ANY help.Thanks

I have heard of mercury poisoning from dental fillings. Have you researched that extensively?

And when you said antibodies normal...which antibodies? The antibody tests related to the thyroid are TPO, Tg, TSI, TSab, TRab, TBII.
Hyperthyroidism 11/05
Confirmed Graves Dx 1/06
Adrenal fatigue Dx 8/06
Fibromyalgia Dx 1/08
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Dx 1/08

Re: Any info would be appreciated

I think they did tpo and tg. I should have asked more questions. I did complete the recommended course for mercury toxicity after removal of amalgams. Just can't understand why I can have 3-6 good weeks and then thyroid swells and I have hypo symptoms for about a week. Then 2 days of hyper symptoms then back to normal life.Enough to drive a person nuts. Thank you so very much for taking the time to discuss this with me. At times, I feel like I'm the only one in the world with crazy symptoms. Also I should add total weight gain30 pds since this started and initially lost about 40 percent of hair(very depressing) Did get some of it back, still about 25 percent seems to be gone forever. Thanks again

Re: Any info would be appreciated

It sounds like subacute painful thyroiditis. a temporary condition that causes hyperthyroidism in its early stages, progressing to hypoT at the end. It's thought to be caused by a virus, and the treatment is pretty much a "watch and wait" kind of deal.

You can read about it on the following webpage ~

You'll find plenty more if you do your own search.
