Question: Hello Dr. Rynne: this is XXXXXXX Wagner, pHD, XXXXXXX tn. adjusting thyroid dose down because T3 had gotten a bit in the hyper range. only decreasing 1.25 MCG per week to diminish chemical surges always associated with change. Having general muscle weakness 3 days now, also queasy. Have apt. w/ my internist Mon. trying to get worked in because it scares me. Have 14 y.o. boy to take care of, and am trying with difficulty to go back to work as therapist after being off following death of wife of 30 years. Have had psychomotor retardation (aka Brain Fog) from Graves' Disease for 30 years, BUT recently discovered amazing clarity, and improved memory with 40 MG Ritalin from my psychiatric colleague.
also queasy. makes no sense to me. really don't want MS, but it really is rare. Thanks. HW

Brief Answer:
You need not worry about MS

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through your query and understand your concerns. I understand that you have been having a number of problems. It is good to know that Ritalin is providing relief.

The mentioned details do not point toward MS (multiple sclerosis). I do not think that you need to worry about it.

My mom has dermatomyositis. She has had treatment over the years with steroids, and methotrexate. In the last year her condition is deteriorating with increased muscle weakness and diminished pulmonary capacity due to weakness of the respiratory muscles. She has had three months of IVIG treatment recently with no improvement and has developed a deep vein thrombosis in the left leg. The doctors want to discontinue IVIG and start her on rituximab infusions. Is this medication safe and how effective has it been in treating patients with RA and dermatomyositis?

Hi I have been tested negative for thyroid & liver problems & arthritis. However I am unwell at least for sometime every day and have the following symptoms. Slight arrythmia, heat intolerance, even when it isn t hot at all I can heat up a lot, when i drink even cold drinks I heat up. Breathlessness, anxiety, irritability, fatigue, trembling hands, muscle weakness, depression, concentration difficulties, even when I eat a lot I don t put on weight. I have difficulty getting back to sleep when I wake up at night, pains/aches in joints and hands, mood swings, forgetfullness, body odour problems. When I twist the upper part of my body, where my thyroid is it feels like something is grinding and it blocks my airways a bit making it difficult to breathe. I take no medications apart from a ventolin inhaler. I have been diagnosed with adhd, tourette syndrome & depression. It really appears to me to be a thyroid problem but the tests have always been negative

I have had blood work, MRI, X-ray which doctors claim cannot substantiate what I am feeling. This all began out of blue 3 years ago July, and headaches were the first symptom. It has progressed since then. Any ideas?? Thanking you in advance
