Hi everyone. Here's my story: I'm a 41 year old female. I was diagnosed with a severely hyperactive thyroid when I was 15. I had radioactive iodine treatments and took Propathyuracil (PTU) for 3 years. By the time I was 18, my thyroid was testing normal every year.

Just this year I got some bloodwork back saying that my thyroid was slightly underactive, which I know can happen after iodine treatment. My doctor put me on synthroid about 6 months ago. I really didn't notice any major changes being on it. Then just recently (starting about 2 weeks ago), I started having night sweats, which I have not experienced since the hyperactive thyroid. I am not perio or menopausal, according to my GYN, so my next thought was thyroid. I woke up last night in an awful sweat; my hair and pajamas were soaked. (and it's cold here in Colorado!). I also noticed something new today; I am extremely hyper and I have that "spaced out" feeling I used to get when I was 15 and my hyperactive thyroid was yet undiagnosed. Is it possible for synthroid to make my hyperactive thyroid symptoms come back? (I haven't lost weight though like I did when it was hyper years ago). I feel so "disjointed" and spacey and manic today and I haven't felt like that in many, many years. I'm also on Prozac (20 mg), if that makes any difference. I've been on that for about 2.5 months.

Any thoughts?
