I am going on Thursday and Friday of this week for a thyroid uptake and scan. After complaining to my doctor of my symptoms - tremors, vision blurred, muscle cramps, sweating....etc, he did bloodwork and found that my TSH level was .002.
I have been on seizure meds (clonazepam) for ten years. I have been reading that this class of drugs can cause thyroid damage. Anyone have any comments on this?
A lot of things can cause damage to the thyroid. You might look up the drug in the Wikipedia on line. You might have built up a tolerance to it. Also, you seem to be extremely hyperthyroid which, from what I understand can cause seizures and all the other symptoms you are having. Get some good Dr. to help you, quick. Good luck.
