Hi all, I had radioactive iodine in March 2015 for Hyperthyroidism caused by a hot nodule goiter & have never felt well since. Classic symptoms of what I would consider hypo, cold, exhausted, muscle weakness, brain fog, although no weight gain. I am beginning to feel like a total pain in the backside to my poor GP, who to be fair has repeated my bloods a fair number of times. 4 weeks ago my TSH was 1.4, so by no means hypo, T3 & T4, 'normal'. I then suddenly began to feel much worse, my goiter swelled up again literally over night, I have just about lost my voice & just feel very unwell. I rang the specialist nurse at the hospital, as initially I thought i was having another thyroid storm, have had 2 previously. She took my blood straight away & in 3 weeks my TSH level has raised to 5.2, again T3 & T4 'normal'. However I now feel totally at a loss, as even though she admitted herself this was a significant shift, it was not bad enough to treat me, I have to say I am very un happy about this, as I really feel dreadful. I know that I feel my best when my TSH is 0.5. I have ordered my own blood form online which I am going to have taken again next week, I have everything crossed that has gone higher, just so I can convince them I am actually ill enough to help. I am actually considering buying my own medication, would appreciate people's thought. Thanks Jayne
