Diagnosed with hyper/negative for Grave's, just T3 toxcicty. All numbers, TSH including Ft3 and 4 very low. Put on Tapazole, 20mgs (10 mgs am/10pm). Numbers held thru beginning of 2016. My trend since November of 2015 is as follows (based on BW results that graphs my changes between draws):
T3 free: 1/21/16: 3.2pg/mL T4 free: .78pg/ml
4/26/16: 3.6 .65
TSH (Draw dates different on some)
The change in TSH HAS BLOWN MY MIND!
I don't have my initial or the few months post diagnosis. Had thyroid enlargement per U/S, aside from that, U/S unremarkable in May of 2015. I felt okay from last April up until the noticeable change in symptoms that has gotten steadily worse and amidst slight dosage changes. I recently met with an endo specialist and am having labs, again 5/20/16. Lens will be discussed in 5/27 and the Endo dropped my tapazole to 5 mgs am/PM. I have further altered the dose and am alternating 5mgs 1× eod, 2.5 eod.
There is no middle ground for me. Insomnia, trouble sleeping, loss of appetite (lost 10lbs.2-3 weeks around end of March), chest pain relieved by cold water, excessive watery BM's, shaky hands, hypertension, migraines, vomiting and nausea and recently experienced a rather severe hematoma in the left eye that seemed to spread. I've been ordered by my PCP to take 4 weeks FMLA because the saddest part about hyperthyroidism is that you want to be understood, but no one else can understand unless they've been there before.
Just wondering if anyone else out there has had a similar experience or is currently going through the same thing. Advice? Thoughts?
