hello everyone,
I am 24 and just recently went from Graves hyper to hypo from the RAI I had done may 12 09. I had a dose of 14.6milicuries and am just now starting my Synthroid @ 75mcg's. I went from .0005 to 85.3 in that little bit of time. I'm kinda upset my blood work was taken a month a part and I was let to get so Hypo. I really don't know how synthroid works so if anyone could explain it to me I would greatly appreciate it. I know it takes time but is my TSH going up as we speak causing me to become more hypo or is my body acknowledging the synthroid I have taken the past 3 days? I am scared I will be admitted to the hospital or something. My endo says they usually don't worry unless my TSH would have been 100+. That really didn't alleviate any of my EXTREME anxiety/panic attacks that I have since this whole GD crap started 4 years ago. I really don't feel too bad. I just get really bad muscle spasms if I turn or strain a weird way. I mean I feel like "im wall hugging and wall banging" in the am but seems to subside when im less anxious and a few hours after I take the synthroid. I don't know its hard to explain Im not use to hypo symptoms and what an emergency visit would contain. Hyper on the other hand I knew when I had to go to the ER or call the doc now i'm just totally clueless.

Your symptoms sound a little hyper to me, but with that TSH that's hardly likely. I think you really need to get your adrenals checked with a saliva cortisol test. They could have been stressed out by your Graves.

If you are on the T4 meds it can take quite a while to build up the levels.
You might do better on a combination T3 and T4 like natural thyroid hormones. * Disallowed website and related information removed by hb-mod, moderator *
