Please could someone advise me for my mum. At the moment she is being treated for over active thyroid. Her speech is gradually getting worse,also she gets to tired to try to speak. She has had MRI scan,muscle tests,blood tests,chest xray. Everything shows up fine as she is a fit person generally,even at 63. Could it by muscle or the thyroid? Doctors are baffled.
When I went from hyper to hypo after RAI treatment, my sister said that I was slurring my words, and, I was also very lethargic and didn't want to do anything. It was from being hypo, however it eventually went away once levels were corrected.
