Why am I going Hyperthyroid All of A Sudden?
I was on .475 of Synthroid for over 10 years. I then had a doctor up it to .500 when I was having my TSH go hypothyroid a bit, and felt lethargic. I've been on .500 for about a year and half. My doctor told me today now I have gone hyperthyroid to the max, so much so, my Synthroid dose is being dropped to 100 until it aligns itself. Could going on insulin which brought back periods in a woman with severe PCOS, do something to the thyroid as well? I'm kind of shocked since it doesn't seem I have lost much weight, and while I have felt more jittery, I didn't go on a hyperthyroid energy binge. My blood pressure was creeping up too after many years of being very controlled. It scares me to be going on such a low dosage of Synthroid, weight gain and all, but I know hyperthyroidism doesn't do one any favors. Does anyone have hypothyroid who goes the opposite way? My sugars are odd too, I am on Lantus and some days I'm even getting ones like 99 and 96 while other days range from 127-102 and that's like a science project. Too little food even and they can be higher. Yes that is weird. Maybe in some ways my health is improving. I am not sure yet. Maybe being away from my NM is bringing my endocrine system more into alignment. Yeah one can dream can't they?
