      All of the above! I just thought I was falling apart — hysterical reaction to 39th birthday — but no hamster stress, thank goodness. I started on synthroid about 3 weeks ago. I work all day, then come home wired and work in the garden, yard, whatever until bedtime, (and it doesn’t seem like I’m accomplishing a thing; sort of like walking through Jello) take a shower and then lay there and look at the clock every hour. We have three fans working in the house (we’re in the mountains and evening temperature is in the fifties – sixties.)

      I’m going to try pinching off a little of the pill or go back to half a tablet like the first week. Can’t take much more of this.

      Hang in there. I’ll keep you posted on whether this works or not.

          Hi everyone,

          I’ve had my second RAI treatment four months ago and started four days after the RAI with PTU again to prevent from going hyper while the RAI had it’s time to work. But this time after two months I had my blood checked and the bloodtest showed I went hypo (TSH of 85). Since then I’ve taken Synthyroid building it up to 125 micro gr daily. The first weeks I noticed a lot of improvement and the bloodtests showed I was heading for the normal ranges. But the last bloodtest showed a TSH of 0.3 and fT4 a little too high.
          I’ m feeling symptoms of hyper again ( palpitations, diarhea, muscle weakness weight loss, fatigue and also cold hands). The endo lowered the synthyroid dose to 100 micro gr. I wonder if any of you also went from hypo to hyper on synthyroid in such a short period of time. My endo said the thyroid must be still working , but doesn’t know how much.
          He said bloodtesting every six weeks is okay because the TSH usually lags behind, but in my case I think it went down pretty fast.
          What if the thyroid is still working and I’m still on 100 micro gr. of synthyroid. Does it make the thyroid hyper again ?

            I went hyper while on synthyroid, except it took a little longer than what you’re describing. Keep in close contact with your doctor.
