I feel like I'm running a marathon, but I'm sitting still. I had problems with orthostatic hypotension and it was difficult to go anywhere; the muscles in my legs hurt. My temperature was an average 96.1. I had tremors. Well, I still have the tremors. But now it's reverse. My heart rate is like 163/100, temperature normal, but heart races 120 to 145 beats. It affects your whole body. I have a solid thyroid nodule, but have not heard the results. I know for sure my body is not okay.

I have had night blood pressure and very high heart rate for nearly a year now. I have trouble walking any distance without getting short of breath. I live in Texas, and last year’s summer was awful for me. I would sweat so profusely that I was soaked after 10 minutes. All doctors thought it was my heart. I went through all tests, and all negative. Now I’m looking into hyperthyroidism. No doctor ever thought about that and I’m furious. I have suffered for a year, thinking that I’m slowly dying. I’ll keep in touch!

My face is getting swollen overnight, I have allergy and itching in the head, face fever, forehead ache and eyes pain. My eyes go red and burning, and my cheeks are burning. I am not sure what thyroid disorder it is.

My husband quit taking his thyroid medicines and developed severe memory loss after one month.

After my delivery I feel so depressed, and most of the time I forget things. And nowadays I am very careless, but before my delivery I was not this person. I can't control my anger. I wonder if it is a thyroid problem.
