Morning all! I have thyroiditis currently. I had positive antibodies test last October , been unwell, balance, gastric stuff alsorts really since. Two weeks ago my thyroid suddenly swelled and is extremely painful. I have high bp for years and take medication. Water tablet was added in at Xmas after a hospital admission because it was high. This brought nit down but has given me dangerously low potassium which resulted in nearly passing out and shakes balance etc. had potassium and stopped tablets but bp rising again. Saw doc last Monday she included thyroid blood test which show high tsh and low t4. Saw doc Friday and he says def thyroiditis but wants to check its not viral but thinks its hashis.
I keep getting the shakes and wobbles am still off work due to labyrinthitis and balance.
Is the shakes part if thyroid? Does sugar drop suddenly with it? Am freezing one minute boiling next!!! Thanjs.
