  • Hypothyroidism cannot turn into hyperthyroidism, in the strict sense of the word. It's a physical impossibility. But, you can be over-medicated and have hyper symptoms.

    Another possibility is that you have Hashimoto's disease, and are on a 'hyper' swing. But, we would need comprehensive labs to know which it is.

    I would suggest you get private testing, to get all those tests that the doctors won't do. You need :

    TSH

    FT4

    FT3

    TPOab

    TgAB

    vit D

    vit B12

    folate

    ferritin

    Details of private tests can be found on TUK main page.

    Only when you have the results of all those tests, will you know what's going on, and what you should do next. :)

  • Hecate888,

    What are your thyroid results and ranges? If you are over medicated you can reduce dose. Stopping NatureThroid altogether will mean you will become hypothyroid.
