I've had a thyroid disorder going on 3 years now. When it first started i had gradual numbness, tired, anxiety, loss of appetite, passing out, couldn't feel hot or cold, intolerant to heat, fast pulse rate. I went to see an Endocrinologist, i found out i had Thyroiditis and that one side of the thyroid was enlarged. Later on that year it turned to Hyperthyroid.

The last year it hasn't showed up in my blood at all but still had symptoms but it's gotten worse now my heart rate races if i even stand for a few minutes which makes me weak, dizzy, feel sick and i have to sit down before i pass out. Also have been having irregular periods throughout this whole time.

Finally a few months ago it showed up again in my blood as Hypothyroid. So i went to see a doctor he tried me on T3 it was awesome the first day then i couldn't tell anymore. I also did the Uptake test which came back normal again. The lobe is still enlarged.

All in all my thyroid has produced a nodule and now cysts. The docs say it's fine but i don't believe them. I've had a mental evaluation and passed, been to a Gyno for the irregular periods, that came back normal.

I've made an appointment with a cardiologist to see if my heart may be a factor in this. But if anyone else has any suggestions please, im all ears. Thank You.
