underlying illness with hyperthyroidism and multi nodular goiter

Posted , 3 users are following.

After 6 years of hyperthyroid hel on ptu and propranolol wwithout much effect suffering from palpitations, chest pain, body pain, numb hands and feet, headaches, buzzing in head, aching cracking joints, dizziness, breathlessness etc etc. I decided to get tested for Lyme disease and the results came back positive.

Doctors said there must be an underlying cause as they never saw a case of hyperthyroidism go on so long. They couldnt work out why i had these symptoms and why i have multiple chemical sensitivity Apparently Lyme often upsets the thyroid. Hopefully after treatment it comes back to normal.

    I also have hypothyrodism. I take levothyroxine once a day, and i also get these pains such as: headache, knee pain, ankle pain and  pain at the back of the teeth.

    I dont know why i get these.

      Hi Paula

      doctors never think of this. I researched lyme and was 95% sure that's what I had as the symptoms have been going on so long. So i got tested. The new forest has a lot of lyme but it can be caught anywhere. I live in bahrain and they say there isn't lyme here but wherever there are ticks there is lyme as far as I'm concerned. I was a stewardess from 88-96 travelling around the world so i could have caught it anywhere. It must have been dormant in me but a steroid injection I was given triggered it off. Read up on lyme symptoms it imitates ME, fibromyalgia, thyroid disease, MS, parkinsons and loads of other diseases.

      How is your vision? Mine is odd blurry and distorted at times. Lots of anxiety and panic so i dont drive anymore. My palms are bright red and my feet hurt.

      how long have you been ill?
