Was diagnosed in local ER Depart mentioned that I had issues with my thyroid. Followed up with my PCP and she told me I had hypothyroidism and was prescribed levo .150. Took it for 6 weeks and noticed I was suffering from insomnia,slight tremors in my hand ,very irritable and felt like I was in a fog. Did bloodwork again and she lowered my levo to .137. After a couple of weeks I noticed I was sweating profusely all the time even waking me up at night,heart palputations and more steady uncontrollable shakes,growing more irritable,gave my notice at work (even tho I loved my job). Just yesterday my husband called 911 bcuz I was shaking so bad...legs arms,hands,and head uncontrollably,my heart was POUNDING out of my chest ( heart rate 143) and high bloodpressure. The ER doctor was reading previous lab results in computer and discovered my PCP was wrong in treating me with hypothyroidism. From the beginning my thyroid was high and she put me on high doses of levothyroxine!! So I have hyperthyroidism AND taking levothyroxine!! Now have me on Ativan to control shakes and lopressor to lower heart rate and blood pressure and yes no more levo!! Now I have an appt with endocrinologist in 2 weeks and I'm worried they will need to remove thyroid.Has anyone else been thru this? If so what can I expect?
