Comments from related studies:
From this study (13 hours ago):
After stopping methamphetamine I go through days of sever depression and severe sweating with agitation.
From this study (2 days ago):
My stomach muscles are spasming and cramping with both lisinopril 20 mg and with benicar.
From this study (6 days ago):
Recently Dxd w/ toxic multinodular goiter/hyperthyroidism. Fibromyalgia for 20+ years. Had to titrate off Savella 100 mg. BID due to hyperthyroidism. Now all above symptoms have worsened. Because thyroid blood work was in normal range ( although I had been on low iodine diet for 2 months, which should keep in normal range) endocrinologist said see me in six months! No instructions, no explanations. Can't find much about Plummer's online! Had bad reaction during uptake scan & ER said due to RAI. If levels had been high on blood work following scan results, Dr wanted to do RAI Ablation. I am a.) Afraid of worse reaction; b.) Ablation not working, having to be repeated; c.) Ultimately having to have thyroid removed surgically.
I need to know my options! What should I be doing now? Anger and aggression, plus crying all the time are taking over my life. Savella was like a miracle drug for my fibromyalgia, but since it was an SNRI I am wondering how much of my problems is from stopping that. I did titrate off professionally, but had been on it over 3 years. Also wondering if it, hyperthyroidism or both are reason I am on four bp meds as cardiologist says heart is healthy. No history of stroke or seizures.
Is there anyone out there who can give me direction? Every day is worse. Also having injections in c- spine to determine if neurological surgery w/ help w/ spinal cord compression. First was done Monday.
Eyes also not focusing! Fibromyalgia or hyperthyroidism? Dr says I have 20/20 in each eye individually & field vision test okay. Still can't see TV or anything up close such as cosmetic needs for face! Nothing helps close vision. Glasses will help distance clear enough for now.
