Hypo and Hyper thyroid hell!!

Posted by amtxo1989 @amtxo1989, May 11, 2018

I have been Hypothyroid for years (diagnoised at 13 I believe and am 29 now) and dealt with all the symptoms that came along with it. Something happened with my body in December. Suddenly I was having panic attacks and chronic anxiety daily along with a stressful tension feeling in my chest area daily along with full body awful aches and pains, jittery, internal shakes, unwanted anxious energy, really really cold than really warm like hot skin. Admitted to hopsital 5 times during 2 month period for all those symptoms. Had countless and endless blood work done looking for anything and everything and even had a MRI and EEG done. Oh and about 8 EKGS. The only thing that showed was that I was Hypo AND HYPER. ..which is impossible right? Finally found a good Endo who said iam primarily Hypothyroid but I also have Graves disease. He did not say what ive been experiencing is from the thyroid malfunction, though I was feeling in perfect health for years before all this and my labs have never showed any Graves. Any advice??

Were you told what caused your hypothyroidism?

My endocrinologist asked if I had been told. After testing, he told me mine was caused by Hashimoto's.

If your doctor finds out the cause of your hypothyroidism, he may have different treatment options.

It may be helpful to have your anxiety causes accessed. Stress can cause numerous symptoms.

Reaching out here is a great step.

Have a great day!

Hi @healingone Welcome to Connect. You seem to have a broad range of experience!
I just wanted to note that often hypothyroidism is genetic. Many people in my family, all women, have it. No other cause apparently.

I hope you are having a great day too!

Is there anyone who has a hyper thyroid?
I went to the dr. yesterday beacuse i lost about 26 lbs. in 3 months,i only weight 94 lbs. right now,im extremely tired 24/7 and i have tachycardia.
My T3 level is high and TSH is lower than the last time i got tested. My biggest concern is that i cant gain weight at all.

@tatianam my situation/symptoms sounds so similar. I’d love to chat more with you! Can you send me a private message? I know this was a couple years ago, I’d be curious to hear where you are in your thyroid journey now!!
