Yes, this happens often and especially if you have Hashi's. Thyroid affects so much of the body that crossing over from hypo to hyper symptoms can be quite common.

Also meds take 4 to 6 weeks to really kick in and depending how long you were hypo before diagnosis it can take quite while for the symptoms to subside.

Sometimes if your meds drop you too much you can go from hypo to hyper., med adjustments can take care of some of this and this can happen especially when you are first diagnosed, sometimes it takes a while to find the dose that works for you.

Yes, yes, yes - actually I have hypo lab results but hyper symptoms!!! I know it can be very confusing! I am finding by being on this board and talking to many others that thyroid symptoms are thyroid symptoms - hypo or hyper - and people at both ends experience a little bit of all of them. I guess this is not so unusual...though also not fun or easy to figure out!!

Hang in there. This is a great place for support and information.

I have always been more hyper than hypo - in fact the only hypo symptom I've ever had was my weight problem. Othwise I had anxiety problems, sweating, intolerable of heat...various things like that. But I have hashis and hypo so who knows what the best thing is.

I have the mixed bag too!! Extremely underweight, fast pulse 120bpm, nervousness, anxiety, trembling, TED, "fast" bowels(Ugh!!) which i guess are more hyPER symptoms, but then the flip side; brain fog, forgetfulness, depression, sleepyness which i guess are hyPO. a very grim list. I have more symptoms of hyPER, but was diagnosed as hyPO...recently. Still a bit confused by the diagnosis though!!

My symptoms suck too. I have to sleep 10 hours or I am very sleepy, and still sleepy after 10. Intolerable to hot temp. Eat every 2-4 hours. No weight gain, still underweight. Low energy, no motivation, and nervousness/anxiety.
