Think I am hyper now

So very confused, woke up this morning, with hardly any voice again and a feeling of something stuck, I have told my gp about this so many times, she looks at my throat says all fine, when I tell her it's lower down she says she can't feel anything, stupid woman, I can see swelling I can feel there is something there, I seem very reved up this morning, very hot and very anxious, heart racing, dry hair, I don't know if hyper or hypo have symptoms for both, my heart is jumping out my chest, on 75mg of levo and have been for 4 years, still no better from the meds. I am at GPS every week at the moment, going from reved up to sleeping for days, I have ostioporosis in my spine arthritus in all joints muscle pain freezing cold boiling hot, weight loss over a stone in 2 weeks, hair loss, cloudy vision, just had laser yesterday because some tear in eye with jelly floating, monthlys have stopped think menopause finished, I am 51 and feel like 90. Any help again in this matter would be great, thank you.

  • Oh my goodness, you poor love. If your heart is banging out of your chest then I think a visit to A and E is in order. There is a heck of a lot going on in your body. Obviously, I am not a medical person, so the decision is up to you. I really hope you get some answers to all of this. xx

  • Been to the hospital, had 3 ecg's and all was fine, all very strange.

  • I started to feel like this during the past week, heart pounding, hoarse voice, fainted whilst out and felt very ill for a while and it just keeps washing over me. Dr reduced my thyroxine from 75 mcg to 25/50 on alternate days but I'm not feeling any better yet. Tsh went from 0.34 six weeks ago to 0.19 this week. I have lots of other issues, taking Humira injections for spondyloarthropy (started these 8 weeks ago) and had to start steroids 3 weeks ago for flare up of lymphocytic colitis. I reckon it may be the steroids that have caused this but Dr doesn't think so but I felt absolutely fine thyroid wise before I started them. Clemmie

  • Hi barrister thanks for the reply, I ave been like this for 4 years, I have come off hrt, because I was getting bad migraines, but I can now put that down to the Ménière's disease that I have just been diagnosed with, might try a reduction n my meds also, it's worth a try, bit scary because the tiredness from not enough is bad really bad, i was told I had hashimotos 4 years ago, no more info than that, I am always looking for answers, and on some web site it points towards graves disease and fibromyalgia, but they could be the symptoms of over or under active, very confusing, very debilitating, my aunt had thyroid problems she's great, my neighbour ha thyroid problems fit and well, looks great super fit, some days I can't even get out of bed, can't claim benefits because nothing conclusive, so only one wage coming in, I have become very antisocial, and isolated. Not good I should not be feeling this bad surely.

  • Needs to go to dr check ur thyroid functions cos it happens to me, I was put on carbimazole and all d symptoms went off Good luck

  • If you've had a recent blood test for your thyroid gland, ask for a copy of your blood test results, with the ranges, and post on a new question for comments. If you've got them to hand, post them here for comments and advice. Has your GP tested vitamin B12, Vit D, iron, ferritin and folate?

  • Scampi, if you truly are hyper now and are producing more T4 as well as what is already in your system (which takes weeks to dissipate), why not ask for carbimazole as Oku suggested below. Maybe Emergency will let you try it as a stop gap. This would be a temporary measure of course.

  • Sorry you feel so bad. Have you ever had an ultrasound scan of your throat? You would need a GP referral for this, but if you see her and just talk about the lump in throat and possibly the weight loss, and nothing else that might distract her, she may refer you. Here in the North West England we have a special 'lump in throat' clinic at Preston. I know that it is part of a whole range of issues for you, that are probably interrelated, but in my experience when presented with more than one symptom GPs just pick the easiest to deal with, so we have to get a bit clever in the way we deal with them.

  • Hi monkey65 thanks for the reply, I am originally from Preston, moved around a lot husband in the army. In harwich now, my gp is hopeless I have been in a few times now with the lump in my throat, she said she can't feel anything, also I have a very husky voice, gritty eyes, heart absolutely jumping, but ecg all good, it don't feel good to me. I have had a tube up my nose but not throat, always had problems with throat, but this is different it's quite low down and only on left had side.

  • I'm not so sure you are hyper..you may not be converting your thyroid meds correctly. Just having an autoimmune condition will make you feel ill and have odd symptoms.
