Hi all I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism last dec, post natal but my mother suffers with hypothyroidism so think it could be something I already was susceptible to (have chronic tmjd, weird joint pains, anxiety occasionally and vertigo prob to this) I recently had a thyroid scan and she said it looked 'plump' but healthy. My tsh is 1.5. I still get the shakes occasionally and panicky feelings out of the blue but the most disconcerting lately is this rope round my neck feeling! It's unbearable. I've also had dry mouth come and go, sometimes as if I've got cotton wool in there. I've not lost weight (*sigh*) but I still have achey legs and feet.. Just want to know if anyone could give me an idea of what might be going on? Is it just fall out from post natal thyroiditis and I'll be right as rain soon? Having read up I wonder if I might be on my he way to developing hashis. I'm about to go private so any tips on which tests to go for would be appreciated.
