Curious about my severe hyperthyroidism

From: Sgtswife - 4 years 24 weeks ago

I'm new here & have several questions. 1st I've been passed through many doctors for test after test, FNA & I have an endocrinologist now. But the goiter covers my thyroid & I have nodules on the left side. So far they say nothing but then again all I know is that my TSH level is almost 0 whatever that means, I've done an uptake, I guess it looked like I was on thyroid medicine already & at that time I was not. I am on methimizole now and not sure what is after this. I am on a beta blocker & even now I feel like my body is trying to go through a thyroid storm again. Is it even possible to go through a storm on medicine? My chest feels so heavy & palpitations but I can't do alot because it hurts my chest so bad & I don't know if that's even normal. I know that I'm covered in calcification & I was told it's due to the thyroid. I do not understand any of this or why. I am the only one on both sides of my family that has had any issues at all with the thyroid so I am seriously clueless about it all. I would just like to know what others do or have done & have you had surgery & does the heart eventually slow down without medicine or what's going on. My vitamin D bottomed out (again I was not given number's, just told about it) they gave me 50,000 MG of vitaminD once a week and I feel a little better since I've had that. I feel like my body is on massive overload and I am so tired of it and ready for something to make me feel better.


Do you find this discussion helpful?

Is this good advice?

Sgtswife,I am new here too, it is so unreal how one little gland the thyroid can make in ones body. Since I came down with thyroid cancer in 2014 that little gland has given me one wild ride but I am determined to hang on. I to take Vitamin D3 50,000 and I cannot tell if it is working or not, though I take mine every two weeks. I know I have gained since 2013 100 pounds30 since I had my radioactive iodine treatment...not a happy camper at all.Have you told your doctor about your chest heaviness and palpation's? If not please let them know.
