In November 2018, I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroid. My diagnosis came about during a routine annual exam which included a full panel of bloodwork. My symptoms were rapid heart rate only. My personal stats at that time were 5'7" 119 lbs. My doctor started me on 20 mg Methimazole.
My numbers were as follows:
TSH: not detectable
Free T3: 6.19
Free T4: 1.71
Still on 20 mg Methimazole - My personal stats at that time were 5'7" 129 lbs. (10 lb gain). My numbers in April 2018 were:
Free T3: 2.96
Free T4: .56
Lowered to 10 mg Methimazole - My personal stats at that time were 5'7" 132.5 lbs. (another 3.5 lb gain). My May numbers were:
Free T3: 2.6
Free T4: 0.66
At this stage, my doctor told me to discontinue the Methimazole and also told me that I am now hypothyroid.
My questions are; what are your thoughts on going from hyper to hypo, what have you done to combat the weight gain, where do I go from here???
I'm so dang confused, depressed, exhausted and the muscle spasms that started in early April are driving me absolutely insane!
I truly appreciate any and all advice from this community. Bless each and every one of you <3
