I just got diagnosed as hyperthyroid last week, and yesterday went to the doc because now that ive figured out why i thought i was nuts, i NEED to fix this asap. I just cant function daily anymore, and havent been able to since my baby was born 7 months ago. I think i have also had this for 3 1/2 years too because of the anxiety, sweating, losing hair, difficulty swallowing and severe mood swings. Yesterday was my breaking point and i said i need an appt with the endo asap. My doc had already made an appt for me with the endo , but it wasnt for 3 months. I cant do that!!! So i went in and crying, told her its now or i dont know what im going to do. Im waiting for the phone to ring. She didnt know about hyperthyroid meds, she thought PTU was not good in breastfeeding or she would give me an Rx sooner, and the endo needs to see what i can take. Maybe she just didnt know, but she told me to keep on breastfeeding and she was sure there was something we could do that was safe during breastfeeding. So PTU IS safe? I hope so and I hope to get an appt soon. I am sweating and uncomfortable and now to top it off i have painful acne all over....i cant take much more.
