    II have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and have all the symptoms above for it, except, I have been unintentionally losing weight, and too much of it. I am way under-weight and can’t gain it back, no matter what I do. I was prescribed 25mcg levothyroxine, and have lost even more weight. I look very unhealthy and thin. I question my doctor whether or not I have hyperthyroidism already and have been given an excess amount of hormones because when I had my labs done, the result was that my T4 was too low, which would mean that my thyroid was OVERACTIVE. once the labs were sent to my doctor, she said that the labs read that my T4 was too high. I am switching doctors because this doctor has messed up a lot in the past and isn’t very caring or willing to listen to her patients. She also seems to not know what she’s doing and is stumped when I ask her medical questions (i’ve taken a year of medical classes). If anyone else is experiencing this, get more than one opinion. Your health is never worth risking.

      Hey, My name is Josie. I have Hyperthroyidism. I had Graves dieases when I was 5 years old, and was expected to die in a month. I could not remember anything. I would be told to do something and forget to do it straight away. I had to have blood tests every 3 weeks, then every 6 weeks then every two months. That went on for 2 years. 1 year ago it came back. I was allways cold, grumpy and depressed looking. I got such painful periods, so painful that I would vomit. The worst year of my life. I gained weight and became a different person.

        I recommend trying tirosint it’s made by akramark and it’s a natural thing my mom takes it and she is doing well, I am going in this month to see an endocrinologist I have cystic growths on both sides of my thyroid and mild enlargement on the left lobe, hopefully everything is in the clear and they only have to put me on meds and not have to remove it… I’m nervous, but certain I will be fine, my thyroid levels were a 4 which is hella high considering they should be a point something for my height and weight… So try that medication, it’s not cheap, but it is a very good medication, considering my mother couldn’t take synthroid it made her severely sick

    Can you have symptoms of both hypo and hyper thyroid problems. My T3 and T4 looks pretty good but I have no TSH. It’s below zero. My hair is falling out and my eyebrows are gone. I have great puffiness underneath the eyes, but my eyes don’t bulge. I’m extremely constipated. I have also been checked for the amount of thyroid T4 that I can make into T3. My test results I’m told look OK. I take cytomel and t4
