Hi, I'm new here, my names Calissa, 2 months ago I started loosing weight, shaking from head to toe, nausea, shortness of breath, extreme thirst, no appetite, hot when temp was normal. After numerous emergency room visits and doctor visits I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism caused by a hot nodule which had grown on my thyroid. When I was diagnosed my TSH was 0.01 t4 was 26(10-20) and t3 7.7(3.0-6.5). I was so sick even though it was caught before my levels were hugely out of range. I am currently on 20mg carbimazole (10 in morning and 10 at night. I am also taking 10mg of propronolol 3 times daily. I have been on these for 3 weeks. Most of my symptoms have now gone although I am still week, a bit dizzy, I have regained 2 kegs of the 10 kg so lost, Can't wait to put on more as I am 5 ft 6 and only weight 48 kgs. I am also still a bit breathless. Iwould love to hear from people who also have a hot nodule or who have had treatment for a hot nodule and/or people who have hyperthyroid symptoms of breathlessness and extreem thirst as I can't find much information about these two symptoms. Anyway would love to chat with people who have been through hyperthyroidism as it has been hard :-)
