    Hello Peter,

    Yes, those are some of the symptoms of Hyperthyroidism. As long as your doctor is able to bring the level down with the medication prescribed to you, you will feel better. You took a good step by joining this forum. There are great people here that are very willing to share there experience.

    It sure is a bit hard to deal with. The shortness of breath they say is usual. I have COPD, and the thyroid made it worse, and I experience being light headed. It sure isn’t a lot of fun. I got a cane to steady myself for fear of falling. I do hope Your Endocrinologist gives you something to help these symptoms. Take care

      Oh, you know it. I cannot walk to far. I can’t take the heat. I have a hard time walking, and I fight to get what little sleep I get. On top of that I am hungry all the time. I have gained about 6 lbs. I really want some relief. I really feel for others who have this condition.

    Hi Peter

    Hyper too. Yes, same symptoms. I check my blood pressure and puls when I feel like that and it is usually high. My PCP prescribed me beta blockers. It regulates the heart beat and I feel better right after taking it. Just a bit lightheaded. And you usually can take it with your thyroid meds.
