Hi, I'm new here. My period has gone on holiday since late March, and long story short, it's because of hyperthyroid. The hyperthyroid, I would bet my right arm, and I mean that, was brought on by stress. My job changed, a relationship ended, guilt ensued when he wanted me back and I had to fight against it, then I met a huge A-hole who tricked me and broke my heart while I was on the rebound and I became a nervous wreck. After a good year straight of no alchohol at all, I started binge drinking once a week for a month, to the point that I blacked out and didn't remember what I'd done the night before. Hmm, maybe I made it easy for that jerk to do what he did...
So on the search for the missing period I found wacked out thyroid levels and have come to where I am now. Supposedly i have Graves' disease. I am one of the few unfortunate ones who don't lose weight, but rather gain it. I am 14 pounds heavier than I was when my period left me. And I am a steady worker outer. I go the the gym 5-7 days/week, usually 6 days. So i have no other symptoms! No trembling, sweating, palps, and I drop to sleep at a moment's notice. So now I'm on my second Endo. doc who i don't like his attitude. And I'm going to get this rx filled for "Tapazole 20mg gd."
I'd like to know if that means 20 per day, or 60 per day (with 20mg 3 times/day) Can anyone help me? I'm not looking forward to travelling down this well trod road. But it helps a lot to know there's others who have gone down it already and surely there's more to come.
I wish it made more sense. I wish I had all the symptoms so I could just face it and deal with it. But I have this secret denial thing, like maybe they're all wrong. Maybe it's just early. Sorry this is long and tedious.
Appreciate any help or advice at ALL!!! Thanks!
