Hi all. I'm new here. I was tested today for hyperthyroidism. I have to say I'm praying it's the reason for my symptoms. Otherwise, I'm thinking I might only have about a year left. I have kind of a long story, but I'll try and shorten it. When I was about 30, I had a cyst on my thyroid. They Did the radioactive pill thing and scan. I was given meds to shut my thyroid down. After about a month or so, cyst was gone so I just quit taking the meds. I ran into the receptionists months later and she asked why I hadn't been in. I told her the cyst was gone and I felt fine. She told me i was suppose to take the meds for life. Fast forward some years. I developed bone tumors in my right foot. While getting treatment, I started having weird symptoms. Heat intolerance and weightloss. For a few years, docs have tried to connect the bone tumors with my weightloss. Last spring I found I have PA(Pernious anemia, b12 deficency) I take weekly b12 shots. I was hoping this was my problem because of the slew of symptoms. After going a year, some symptoms have subsided, but some still there which is normal I guess. Anyway, over a few years, I have gone from 130 pounds to now 94. I have nightsweats, all day sweats, pounding heart, dry skin, itcy and blurry eyes, anxiety and now getting weak and don't feel like doing anything. I'm scared because if this isn't thyroid, I'm worried they won't find the cause before my body completely fails. Any help would be greatly appriciated
