I'm going nuts, like the rest of you, trying to undo this awful thyroid puzzle. I was hypo for twenty-some years, and on Syntrhoid. Then this past June for inexplicable reasons, I jumped to the hyper side....about jumped out of my skin for five days....doctor took me off the Synthroid and doubled my beta blocker to reduce the tachycardia. Anyway, he tells me I have subacute thyroiditis that should clear up in 6-8 weeks, then turn hypo again. I'm in my 13th week, and although the hyper signs are less, I still have bad hot surges, heat intolerance, brain checked out, and others....but many hypo symptoms, too. I also have a nasty sore throat, inside and out, and feel "burny" around my neck. I also feel it is getting thicker. Nobody will say if it's subacute or Hashimoto's, and if so, how long it all lasts till I can get back to my good old medication-controlled hypo self. This is nasty stuff for me on top of many other diseases I have. ANy thoughts or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
