About 10 years ago I had a partial thyroidectomy due to goiters. I still have some small goiters on the other side which are monitered and at this time that side doesn't need to be removed. My Dr. said that I am slightly hyperthyroid, and have been for several years. However, my levels are apparently acceptable, but just on the high end of the acceptable range. I recently my Dr. about some symptoms I've had which i never thought might be related (bad PMS, very long & heavy periods, very emotional, etc). She offered to put me on a very low dose of antithyroid medication to see if it helps. Is this worth starting medication and how can I possibly be HYPERthyoid after a partial thyroidectomy. I am 32 years old.
