My TSH and free T3 and T4 have been trending toward hyper for about a decade, but levels always are in the normal range until just now. I’m officially diagnosed with hyperthyroidism with no answers why yet. I requested the test because of full feeling in my throat and rapid weight gain. What a surprise! About 4 or 5 years ago I had tremors, etc., but no more. Now I have weight gain, constipation, and low heart rate (56-60). Wish someone can help me understand. I am confused. My symptoms much more closely match hypothyroidism but I am definitely hyper.

Glands in my armpit and neck hurt and swell with hyperthyroidism.
