    Hi Gary, Yep they are all symptoms for the overactive thyroid.....how long have you been on the meds. it can take a little while for them to kick in. I still have symptoms but milder since I've been on the meds.

    Not sure if it can affect the hearing. this is my 2nd time with my thyroid going over. A few years back I was out on meds and withim months felt prefect. I'm back on meds since December now and feel much better than I did but still have tiredness..mat times it take everything just to get up and go. At this stage I have been advised to go for a final option ..... If you don't start to feel a bit better see a specialist. my doctors had me on meds and when I was sent to the endocrinologist he told me I wasn't on the right dose and what I was taking wouldn't have the effect he was looking for

    The only thing that might be the problem is diet. Are you following a thyroid diet. I know hyperactive thyroid is miserable, I too have been diagnosed with it a month ago. The agony of waiting until July 31 for an appointment with an Endocrinologist is beyond comprehension. However, I looked up Diets for hyperthyroidism, and it has helped a lot. I don’t know if the ear problems are relative, but the right diet may be the answer. You could also check with a dietitian. Hope you do well.

    Hi Gary, just make sure you have no iodizedsalt. That fires up the thyroid. I have found a salt substitute, and it tastes exactly like salt.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    I am suffering GREATLY with dizziness and anxiety and the horrible dizzy spells make the anxiety so much worse! I dread getting out of the bed some days and especially going out in case I have an " episode " while out because I am terrified of passing out in public. I have never actually passed out but came VERY close to it a BUNCH of times. My PCP has never actually told me that the dizzy spells and/or anxiety are directly related to my thyroid issue ( I am not on any thyroid medicine at this time ) but I feel as if they have got to be related. I joined this forum because I NEED to talk to other people who are having the same ( or similar ) issues as I am because I feel as if nobody around me understands !! I also sometimes even get dizzy while laying down . Do you have this problem at all ?

      First, Do you have hyperthyroidism,or Hypothyroidism? With Hyperthyroidism I know you need to follow a specific diet. This was not given to me by my family doctor as I am still waiting for 2 more months to see an Endocrinologist. I felt so shaky, short of breath and my bones hurt everywhere in my body. I got to thinking about a diet. I researched the internet and found many sources. It took a little over a week, but I began to feel much better.

      i do hope this helps. You may also contact a dietitian, and learn more.

      Bestof luck, I know this is miserable. I got an ultrasound today, now to wait again for those results.

      i haven’t had dizziness. Many times the ears are involved and that may be where the dizziness

      originates from.

      Have you seen an Endocrinologist?

      Best of luck,

      Arlea
