Hi. I could realllly use some advice. I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism 8 years ago at age 16. Since then I have seen three different endocrinologist, with each telling me something different I need to do. One says surgery, one says treat with medicine, and the most recent one says to do the radioactive iodine. For the past 8 years I have been up and down feel okay for a while then awful again. I have been dealing with severe anxiety, depression, mood swings, and a lot of dizziness. I have been taking methimazole for at least 6 years..yes 6 years! I recently found out this is very bad an can cause liver damage as well as many other affects. I really want to be off ALL my medication because I also take propranolol, sertraline (generic for zolof) and buspirone. As Im getting older and becoming more educated on everything, I feel like my primary care doctor has just been feeding me medication and doesnt really care to treat the real problem. Im unsure which treatment to do, they both really scare me. Any advice would help. Thank you.
