Iwas recently diagnosed with a thyroid disorder . Hyperthyroid . the T levels were quite high my doctor said. he prescibed methmazole which when I tok it made me very nauseas. I have been using street methamphetamine mostly every day,athough just a little bit,by way of smoking it. I also am post menopausal for about a year.About six months after i stopped having periods i started developing the exessive sweating, It became frustrating to sweat so much so i went to the doctor. he ordered a blood test . thr results showed that the T levels were very high.How do I know if meth is casing it or if it is change of life problem. I go on using the meth still anyways apprehensively. Is this bad and what could happen if my thyroid is left untreated?

Your excess sweating may be associated with your high thyroid levels and also due to your menopause. Since your thyroid is still high, i would prefer to increase the dose of methimez or change to other thyroid medication. Normalizing your thyroid hormones will make things better. If left untreated it can causes weight loss, increased heart beat, tremors, tiredness, sleeplessness, osteoporosis and many more.
