I seemed to be ill for years, when i was first was told i had a overactive thyroid i was glad in away because they found something wrong with me because i thought i was going mad. I greed to have the radioactive iodine treatment in febuary this year. My TSH blood level was showing 100> I felt terrible they increase my meds the TSH came down by half they increased my meds again. Then I sarted with eye problems my weight gained by 4 stone, my endo told me that my eyes could be due to when i was hyper but i read up on it and it says that the radioactive iodine treatment. My TSH level is now 5.36 they have come right down now endo has increase my meds again, Iam frightened of going hyper again and the dr just turned round again if it happens it happens its allright for him he doesnt have to live with it. according to him he also says my weight has nothing to do with being hypo it could anything (its funny it didnt go on till i started being ill will my thyroid.

I need to feel human again my depression went worse when i went hyper, self esstem, no confidence and my weight gain will there be and end to this.
