    I am 23 yr. old female and have Hyperthyroidism

    About 2 months ago my husband was out of town and I put my children to bed. I felt perfectly fine. About 3am I woke up to my heart pounding out of my chest, sweating bullets and felt so much anxiety. I have been suffering from anxiety attacks since I can remember, but this felt very different. I almost called 911 but instead called my mother who thought I was crazy. I went to the dr that morning and he ordered some lab work but wrote it off. I finally went in and my TSH came back 0.01 (low) and my Free t4 levels 3.3 (high). The endocrinologist will not see me until Nov.30th. I was scheduled for a Thyroid Scan and Uptake but after a lot of reading I discovered that the radiation would pose a health risk to my children. I had a Thyroid antibodies test done today and am waiting for the results. Nov. 30th seems like an eternity because I am always extremely hot, fatigued, my voice is hoarse, I have shooting pains in my neck and my hair is falling out by the handfuls. I feel alone with this disease and would love to hear from others.

    I'm sorry you're going through this. Can understand you feel alone, but you're not, a lot of people on the board know what you're going through.

    Did your doctor give you a betablocker in the meantime to calm things down a bit already? of course November 30 seems like eternity.

    hang in there!

    Dear friend , I have same problem and diognised with hyperthyroidism last year. My TSH was 0.03 and t4 was 1.9 and t3 was 12. Since t3 and t4 was within normal range doct. suggested to wait for some tile till t4 &t3 cross their limit. After 6 months it crosses the limit then i went for redioactive scaning but uptake was 22% normal. So they started medicine NMZ 10 mg thrice a day. After two month i become Hypo. and TSH 27. The they stoped medicine. Again after 6 month by TSH became 0.01 and t3 and t4 just touching upper limit. I went for antibodies and TSH receper. My anti thyrogluibin is 2000 ( 0-60) and anti thyro perox antibodies is 1300. TSH receprt less than 5. I wam again planing to visit doct on 5 oct.11. Pl tell be your doct. opinion and anti body value if it come. to hear from others.
