Hashimoto



After I tried to have my thyroid regulated by a ND, I turned back to an endo, the first one I saw. He's good and I like him.

The second endo I saw nearly killed me by refusing to reduce my thyroid meds. I was clearly overmedicated but he refused to change a thing because I didn't have hand tremors. I later learned that not all overmedicated patients have hand tremors.

It's Hyperthyroidism! Eek! First time for everything

Jun 29, 2008 - 0 comments

I posted this to the question I asked in the Neurology Community board:

Guess what this was? I'm shocked to discover on my own, through research, that all my symptoms are those of hyperthyroidism. I'm normally hypothyroid. This is the first time this has occurred.

All my tests were negative. The neurologist believes the symptoms were migraines without headaches. I now have to agree with him.

As my TSH normalizes, my symptoms are subsiding so that's how I confirmed this is the cause. It was 0.20 and is now 0.46. I suspect when it gets into the 0.50 plus range I'll feel better.

I did have a strange migraine, diagnosed by my ophthalmologist, in the Telemetry unit when I was hospitalized for hyperthyroid symptoms on Mother's Day weekend. Again it was without a headache but had all other migraine symptoms.
