I am currently in the process of being diagnosed with hyperthyroid. I have all of the symptoms. I first noticed them in August when I had my Dr run a baseline he found that my tsh was .35 which is not bad. Only mildly suppressed. I then went to my family Dr. and he ran more tests and found that I have anti-thyroid antibodies. He put me on ptu. I was on that for about 6 weeks when I broke out in hives. I then went to an endo and she took me off and gave me a beta blocker. At that time my tsh was .47 which was then in the normal range but I had been on 300 mg of ptu per day for 6 weeks. I was off all meds but the beta blocker and my tsh was then .22. They t4 and t3 were in the high normal range. However they were still normal none the less. My problem, is, there is nothing normal about the way I feel. I have hand tremors, my heart races, my eyes hurt, I hardly sleep, I can lose my temper at the drop of a hat, I am hot all of the time. My skin is thinning, my fingernails are rigid. Now I have skipped a period. I want to know how long it took for others to get diagnosed. My endo has the compassion of a brick wall and tells me that I look better than some of her other patients. I am very lucky I have a great family Dr that is concerned. He ordered me a thyroid scan for 10/30. I am just terrified that it will come back normal. Has anyone else had these fears? Am I going crazy?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
