Re: Hyperthyroid and Stress
I have been told that yes, extreme stress can cause a flareup. In fact, extreme stress can be a trigger for hyperthyroidism to begin.
I don't have the labs to back it up, but I *know* mine was worse a week ago (diagnosed back in June). My daughter was home with pneumonia, DH and I were both trying to juggle our full time jobs and take care of her, and we came *this close* to taking her to the hospital. I was an absolute mess the next day.
