ok so for months I have had a lot of thyroid symptoms and have had many many thyroid tests done through blood tests . and always come back normal. I recently had an ultrasound and my thyroid is enlarged and multinodular really . had tested and was not cancerous . doctors are recommending it for me to have my thyroid removed , but I guarantee that my symtoms go away because I do not know if it is caused by the thyroid or not. My symptoms are anxiety attacks , depression , palpitations , fatigue , pain in the arm , sometimes fingertips are numb , dizziness , feeling off balance , more painful periods , and lots of other things . the only thing I do not understand is how can my thyroid enlarges while doctors say his Hude with nodules in it and function normally ? ? ? ? I do not know if I should go ahead with the surgery or not ? please if anyone has information or has seen something like this i really appreciate your help . i keep asking the doctors and they just seem not to know what is going on .
I am a 26 year old female. My doctor told me I have low thyroid after he got the results of blood work he had drawn on me. I have been taking Levothyroxine, only 25mgs a day. That is the lowest does. He said he wanted to eventually take me higher, as that is very low. I moved, and do not have a doctor, and it will take me a while to get one. I have been having some health concerns, and I was wondering if they could be due to the low thyroid, not being cured because of the low dose of medicine. My hair is very brittle, and up top it is thinning, almost like someone cut it. My throat seems to get hoarse. Very dizzy. The dizziness is the most concerning for me. Can anyone who is reading this tell me what they think from what I have said here? Also, what symptoms do you know of? Thanks a lot.
* Weight gain * Depression * fatigue * Stiff neck / knee hurts * Migrains * Hair loss / dry hair
I have been diagnosed with having a very active thyroid and I will see my doctor and endocrinologist in a week . I've been experiencing depression , panic attacks , obsessive worrying thoughts , fatigue and a general apathy for about six months. My doctor says that this has to do with how bad my thyroid is . However, once you receive treatment for thyroid ( taking the correct dose of medication ) , will my emotional symptoms disappear ? NEVER was well before six months. All this just started so early, anxiety and all. So , how long will it take for emotional symptoms to go away? It was really upsetting to me and I just want to be myself and I feel again. Any input is appreciated , especially from someone in the medical field !
Earlier this year I had a blood test and a doctor said I had hypothyroidism , but another said it was normal, never follow . Anyway recently I've been getting cold sweats ( usually at night ) , palpitations , extreme fatigue and depression (depression over the past year or so) Does this sound like I need a third opinion ?
I have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism a few years ago , but some of my symptoms confused and refer to me as : palpitations , feeling nervous - and nervous restlessness, depression and progressing since iv'e been diagnosed . I take my meds , but I'm confused , not HYPER these symptoms do not HYPO ?
I have been taking Synthroid 0.88 for two people in a year and a half . I recently got my blood for my thryoid levels and my doctor increased my dose to 100 . Since then I have been feeling very tired , confused, depressed , and I feel like sleeping all day. I have no energy or motivation to do anything . So my question is if I have been on 88 for two in one and a half and then just increase my dose may have no symptoms or not ?
I had a panic attack four weeks ago , you have not had one since, but almost have a few times . I'll be very sick when I do, very nauseous
Any health care professional that knows what's wrong or have any suggestions. I'm a 24 year old male that has been having insomnia and heat intolerance problems for about 1.5 year. I've been sweating a bit more than usual during the day if I am at work sitting down or even standing in line at the store. Even on cold days.This is mainly during the day and I seem to have difficulty sleeping every night. I am fatigued sometimes, but it's hard for me to even go to sleep. I've asked several people and they told me I may have a thyroid problem. Is that what it is or can it be something else. I've have a blood test concerning hepatitis panels &STDs and they all came back normal. Any ideas on remedies or what I am suffering from, please let me know.thanks!
im 30yrs old and my TPO ( thyroid peroxidase antibody ) antibody test came back as very high ( 349 ) (normal range is less than 35 supposedly) but TSH , T4 etc was normal. GP said it was rather that if not, to develop a thyroid problem . However, a pair of doctors have been played since this . One of them said that I will develop a thyroid problem and the other says that I can go through life without any problems until I'm older . So that's three contrasting medical opinions . My doctor said it would monitor the thyroid , but have not done as regularly as he said he would. I developed from swelling of the neck (almost like a goiter , but not as important ) and sometimes struggling a bit with swallowing . Also I have some symptoms of thyroid problems. There is a family history ( grandmother had active thyroid , the mother is currently investigating hyperparathyroidism
Hello , So I just wanted to know the opinion . I am a very active 26 years . I increased my training recently due to an international event next but I'm suffering from the following Exhaustion Extreme hunger but also sometimes nuasea Greasy hair normal Dolores Bad sleep patterns . Insomnia and waking up early. All of them could be related to the year ended , but I have a family history of thyroid disease . I started taking protein shake with a balanced diet and try to sleep as much as possible . I visit the doc ? If they do I just tell them what I think.
I have 16 years and at least 5 women in my family have thyroid problems. During the past 5 months I have been experiencing extreme stress and fatigue , poor concentration , apathy and depression . These symptoms do not appear to be caused by something else ( my anxiety / depression issues have really declined , but I still feel like I have ** , but I'm happy and not worried ) and have not disappeared . My nails and hair break more easily , I often short of breath , and sometimes my heart rate seems much slower than normal . I have this strange feeling in the back and through my head constantly . ( . 's Pretty much the worst I've seen in my life ) My voice is weak and my throat hurts - but I think this could be stress ? and I have joint pain at all times . Like many of the dairy products , so I do not know why I have hypothyroidism , but that's really what it seems . My symptoms appear inconsistent with hyperthyroidism . Thank you. :) Please do not respond if you have not read the whole thing.
