I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism in January 2017. I was administered a radioactive iodine pill in late March. Almost 7 weeks later my thyroid levels are still really high and the thyroid itself is still as large as it was when this all started. A few days ago my endo put me on Methimazole 20mg 2x per day. They made me feel worse that i was feeling before. It seems as tho my rapid heart rate has increased. I was previously on propranolol 20mg 3x a day. I have really bad days and sometimes it seems as though I will not make it through that day. I am really discouraged and it seems as though my treatment plan is a long drawn out process. I actually began to get sick in December 2016 and now it is almost June and I am no further along than I was I. December. I'm scared a lot because I stay feeling sick a lot. I haven't a support group with family and friends. I've gone to see a psychiatrist because literally I thought i was losing my mind. I was previously on alprazolam and tempazapan for panic attacks brought on my the disease. To me they were treating my symptoms and not thee condition. I could be wrong because at this point I really do not know anything. I need at least one person in my corner. Someone who can help encourage me. Someone who will help me understand all that i am going through. I need your help please.
