    Wink Re: what about hashi's with TSI?

    I am having the same problem, only I haven't been on any thyroid meds for 3 months and am still having episodes of hyper--racing heart, anxiety, shaky, freezing cold and frequent BM's. Last night was one of those episodes. I took my BP meds and they helped with the racing heart and high blood pressure (that I don't normally have) but I still couldn't sleep all night! I am shaky and so anxious. My endo wants me to have a TT because he's tried everything else and nothing seems to work. I can not tolerate any thyroid meds since Feb. of 2013.
    I've had a RAI uptake and thyroid scan which did not show graves...just two small nodules (neither hot nor cold) and only mildly swollen thyroid. I've had Hashi's since Dec. 2004
    I want to have the surgery because I am so debilitated with these symptoms my life has come to a halt. The only thing is I'm afraid I won't feel any better as some people have had the TT and still have issues.

    Anyone have any thoughts? I'm beginning to feel desperate

    Re: what about hashi's with TSI?

    I also have Hashimoto's and detectable TSI levels.
    TSI 44% (<140%)
    Thyroid peroxidase ab: 780 iu/ml (<5) H
    Thyroglobulin Ab: 84 IU/mL (<20) H

    My thyroid hormones tend to fluctuate between normal and mild/subclinical hypo, but I've never been on thyroid medication. I get heart palpitations (PVCs and PACs) and muscle tremors/twitching. I also get dehydrated a lot (another hyper symptom?). I never had these symptoms before my thyroid issues started! I also get hypo symptoms sometimes. I actually have a history of hyperthyroidism, but my TSI levels weren't checked back when I had it (they were only checked years after I had it).

    naturegal76, you have an awesome endo. Mine just said that my hyper symptoms were not related to my thyroid because my TSI was negative. She completely ignored the fact that it's detectable. Thank you so much for the info!
