Tired Of Hyperthyroidism...

Hi! I'm new to this group, I don't know if it's still active or not but I felt the need to share my story as well.
I've been living with hyperthyroidism for 4 years now, like many others I didn't know what was wrong with me at the time. I ate a lot but I kept losing weight, my hands were shaky, my heartbeat was always at top speed, I slept almost all day, my eyes couldn't handle light, etc, etc...
I was diagnosed with malnutrition at first, lol, until finally a doctor gave me the right diagnosis. Since then I've been following a treatment with propranolol and tapazole. The thing is, if I stop taking the treatment my symptoms will just reappear, and I really am tired of this illness. I want to readapt to my old lifestyle and I just can't, I sink into depression very quickly, I feel as if my life was a constant rollercoaster and I can't get out of it.
It's difficult to deal with the physical issues but then I have to deal with the emotional issues as well.
So anyway, I just wanted to get this off my chest.

I know exactly what you mean, I was on a trip to Disney a few weeks ago and I became really sick, I felt nauseas, weak,ver tired. I went to the first aid area and my heart rate was about 135, high blood pressure and it's usually low, had a temp, the met was afraid, he called ambulance ASAP, when I got to er, my vitals remained the same, I was given I've, they assumed I was dehydrated, it was a very hot day, I have never felt the same since that day, when I got home I saw my doctor and they gave me every test there was and sure enough my thyroid level was 3.1, I was told normal levels are .8-1.5, I was referred to endocrinologist and I have appt next week, I have done my own research, I do not want rai and I do not want the surgery, I would rather do the natural thing, I am really tired of the emotional roller coaster, I just want to feel normal again.

I can sympathize Maggy! Imagine having all the symptoms and not being treated for them... That is my position and not only do I feel lousy, I'm very upset with the lack of treatment!!!
