Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board

I'm having a problem in that I've gone from hypo to hyper for the first time in 12 years. Right now my TSH is 0.12 and I'm bouncing off my walls, having hot flashes, panic attacks, sweating, can't sleep, jittery, I feel like I'm on amphetamines and then I have this horrible lump in the throat feeling that won't go away no matter HOW many times I swallow and that's making me feel even more panicky. Doc reduced my Synthroid from 175 to 150, but now I'm afraid to take it. Did you continue to take your meds every day when you were hyper and how long did it take to come off this high? Thank God I have some Xanax here that Doc gave me a year ago, or I'd be in the ER!
