From this study (3 days ago):
I was diagnosed with MND IN 2012. Changed to Functional Disorder in 2013. Changed to Tardive Dystonia in 2014.
None of these diagnoses fit. I have had 2 EMG's of which I obtained a copy of the results ad. The first one does indicate MND, but there was no further deterioration. Therefore it was not MND.
after the 2nd EMG it was intimated that the test wS clear and therefore it was of a functional nature. I was sent for a second opinion by my Neurologist and was then told it was drug induced TD.
The copy of the results from this 2nd test was not clear but the Neurophysiologist reD it as to having MSA.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
When my levels are normal I am only taking 50mg every eight hours. When increased to 100mg ever 8 the hyperthyroidism comes back. Weight loss 6-10 pounds, increased sleep disturbance and anxiety.

Still experiencing weight loss 5ft 8in at 110lbs. Increased intake of calories over the last three months and still unable to gain weight. High pulse rate 112 while resting. Female 28
From this study (3 weeks ago):
The tremors/shakiness are intermittent. It is possible I could have had a constant shingles outbreak for over 7 yrs now due to my severely suppressed immune system. It takes me several weeks to be able to recover from these symptoms once treatment is stopped. However, I'm not sure if there will be irreparable damage to my kidneys at this point.
