Hi all! I’m recently diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and have not seen my specialist yet. I must be honest and say I am terrified, mostly of the unknown. Been on the net looking at all I can and found this wonderful place.
They can’t schedule me till July 2, and that is a long time to wait.
Can anybody give me some pointers??? I sure would appreciate it!

Hi there Angie,welcome to our BB and you are at the right place.I was wondering how you are feeling as far as the tremors (hands shaking when you hold your hands out straight) go and do you have heart
palpatations and sweating are you doing much of this Angie,the reason that I do ask these is they are what one can when they have over-active thryoid problems and your appointment is so far away,at least to me it seems to be.Have you been sick long time Angie? Well,welcome and I look forward to your next posting to see exactly what your dealing with,try not to worry dear you will be ok,we have lots of lovely caring people here at the BB so you can post anytime you feel like doing so Angie,take care and hang in there,friend BarbAnonymousJune 17, 1998 at 11:20 pmPost count: 93172
Thank you SO much!!
Yes, I have all of those symptoms and at first I had been diagnosed with Anxiety, till I asked the doctor if to try the blood test
and it came back positive. I had already made an appointment with a counselor, so I kept the appointment and she suggested I call
my doctor and get some beta-blocking medicine to help with the symptons untill my appointment. I just got the pills today, so I
will try tomorrow and tell you how it goes!
