Exhausted and irritable!!

From: Renae3629 - 1 year 18 weeks ago

Hi everyone so I am a little freaked out. I have had a thyroid goiter for about 10 years right, and I had ultrasound after ultrasound biopsy after biopsy and more than enough blood work done... and NOTHING was wrong the ending said! He said I was fine! And I was and am not fine! My goiter has grown drastically in size causing pain to eat and swallow all the time. I just got a new set of blood tests done and they are saying I’m hyperthyroid! Which really doesn’t make sense cause I have more of the symptoms of hypothyroid! I do not understand almost all the symptoms are for hypo not hyper other than the irritability! I’m beyond frustrated all the time and I cannot lose ANY weight! I go to the gym 5 days a week and eat healthy I am so annoyed because if they try to put me on meds to “regulate” my thyroid and I gain more weight I will be livid! I am 5’10 and I weigh 175!!!!! I have never weighed this much I usually am between 130-145 and I am even uncomfortable going outside! Plus the fatigue is so very intense that I have to drink ample amounts of caffeine to get through the day sometimes. I need help I can’t deal with this but I refuse to be more fatigue and gain weight while being on meds! I just want a doctor to listen to me...
