Well it was certainly nice to find this bulletin board. Last year I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism, however, I seem to be an exceptional case. I was told that I am very sensitive to thyroid hormone. Anyway had the RAI and started to feel fine all last winter. By June, my endo tells me my bloodwork is definetely hypo, however, I felt ok. Anway started taking synthroid and and kept being increased. Seemed to be coming along fine but now I feel nervous at times and don’t have a great appetite. The endo says definetely not your thyroid because you are still hypo. Meanwhile I am supposed to be so sensitive to the thyroid hormone, I’m thinking it’s my body adjusting to the increased synthroid. Anybody else out there ever experience such. I did talk to one friend who said it took her a while to get settled on the increased dosages of synthroid. I hate Graves Disease but it is so nice to see that I am not alone. Believe me I’ve been there, I know all about the many sleepless nights, panic attacks, etc.
I had the RAI back in Aug.After 2 mths. I went hypo.I am now on .125 of synthroid and seem to be almost regulated.How long before your thyroid stops dying out from the left over radiation and how long after you get regulated on synthroid does it take for any hair that broke of or thinned to return? Thanks, Hank
