So I started getting anxiety sweating about a year ago. I immediately noticed a huge lump in my throat and this whole year has been rough. All day constant head sweating and warm moist skin. Hand tremors, and I look like I don't no what sleep is,my eyes are dry,sore and tired.I started methomazloe and beta blockers in august . The methomazloe brought my tsh all the way to 8.276 TSH on 11/9/2016 to the point where I'm now shivering and cold but my head is still warm and sweaty. I have thyroid surgery planned for the 28th of this month so I'm relived about that. No matter how many hours of sleep I get per night I wake up feeling tired and my eyes are super tired looking dark circles and red in the outer corner of my eyes. I twitch in my sleep slightly and I wake up numerous times during the night to urinate. My question is after thyroid surgery do things get any better? Does the sweating or warm face suffice? I'm really just tired of feeling warm in the head and face all day for the last year for no reason.i no it's anxiety sweating, but the thing is I didn't have this before the lump in my throat formed ,so after the surgery do the symptoms lessen? Ever since the lump formed I am literally unable to sleep in I wake up the same time basically every morning early with my sweaty head and heart beating fast. I've lost a good amount of weight as well Barry any muscle in the bicep areas nowadays too. Anybody that was HYPERTHYROID m does life get better after surgery? What to expect after surgery? Thanks

    I take methomazloe and beta blockers once in the morning and once at night. I tend to feel better at night as I'm relaxing and falling asleep the sweating stops . But starts up again when I wake up in the AM and goes all the way until around 10-11pm at night

    From the swing in your lab tests, especially TSH, I am wondering if you have Hashimoto's or Graves and Hashimoto's.  The only way to know is to have your antibodies tested.  If it were me, I would not opt for surgery so quickly before I tried other things like supplements, diet and learning all I can about my disease.

      It's hyperthyroid Graves' disease is what I was diagnosed with a year ago, but I have felt slight symptoms for years, but not to the major degree until I developed the humongous nodule. My anti-thyro per 8.70, my anti-thyroglobu is 13.9 .. my thyroid stimula is 28. Ive been taking vitamin D and acetyl L carnatine as well. The lump in my throat is about 3.5cm and urged by most surgeons and endo's to get it removed so that's when I went ahead and opted to get the surgery.

    I Took lots of supplements !

    ...I'm Euthroid now and feeling

    very good indeed ... a year ago I wanted to .... die !

    No one could Ever make me have surgery to remove my thyroid

    OR ...

    Make me destroy it with RAI

    It is a VERY vital part of our bodies and we simply cannot live without it

    You can live with synthetic thyroid hormone ... but how well

    I can name 20 people in my family who have gone this route and would reverse if they could

    As for being Hypothyroid .... it is no walk in the park for many people ....ask on here how folk cope with being HYPO
