    Unhappy hyperthyroidism w/ "feeling out of it"

    This summer I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, that was because I had talked to my doctor about always being tired, and how my mind was always feeling fuzzy. They did a blood test and said that I had hyperthyroidism so I got a pill for it, the doctor said that it would take about 2 weeks for the pill to kick in, I mean I do feel that I am not tired all the time, and my mind is not as fuzzy but, I didnít know if I should have told the doctor that I am also feeling out of it, as in I am not part of this world, as if I am leaving in a one big dream. I donít know how to explain it well, its like, I would go through the day and right when something happens it feels like I didnít do it or it was a dream as if I am not part of this world. I donít know if this makes sense. I also seem to have a memory problem I canít seem to remember a lot of things either long or short term. I would read but not remember it, I used to read one thing and remember it and I wouldnít have to read the book over and over again, like I am doing now. I canít remember my past or childhood that well, everything I do feels like itís a lie/dream, or itís a memory that someone put it in me. At first I thought that it was hyperthyroidism and after the medication I will feel my mind clear up and feel as if I am part of this world, but even after a month of medication I am still feeling ďout of itĒ so now I am thinking I should go to a psychologist but I wanted some advice first. Can someone, anyone explain to me what is happening. Is this normal, am I just over thinking this?
    P.S. I donít know when it started, and in a nutshell I don't feeling like doing anything as if it doesn't matter. I am a collage student, so you can tell it effects my school work a lot. And also i tend to sleep a lot.

    Yes you need to let your doc know your symptoms.

    Hi! it sounds like you could be the other way now...hypo thyroid. This often happens because docs give too much of a dose of meds and then we are on the lower end of thyroid hormones and feel tired, brain foggy,out of it etc...have your Free t 4 and Free t 3 tested to see if your numbers have come down too much. Ask for the results and post them. After a month on meds you should be tested anyway.

    I know exactly how you feel. It's exactly how I would describe it and that's not an easy thing to do! I felt that way when I was first diagnosed 14 years ago and was fine after I got adjusted to the right dose of thyroid medication, which took many months. The feeling gradually went away and was fine until about 7 months ago when my levels got off and I had the same feeling, which I attributed to the anxiety that I had because of my levels. I am hypo but my levels went hyper and my meds needed to be reduced. I'm almost back to normal, but still have moments when I don't feel right, or a little anxious. It just takes time, that's all I know. I've had my medication adjusted several time these past 7 months and believe I'm still having to work on it. This does happen to people, its a hormonal imbalance and will get back right again as your body adjusts to the right dosage of medication. Hope you're better soon and that maybe this helps to let you know you're not alone!
