I had my thyroid out 10 years ago and have

I had my thyroid out 10 years ago and have struggled with severe twitching and exhaustion. The twitching doesn't happen all the time but when I does, I am not able to control it and it becomes more like tremors. I used to work out a lot prior to my surgery but I am exhausted most of the time. Are the twitches a nerve issue, and are their foods or vitamins that can help?

About 10 years ago, I had thyroid cancer and had my thyroid removed. No further treatment was done after that. I have been fine until a couple of weeks ago. I have been choking on food and have gotten hoarse. I m wondering if it is due to thyroid problems or sinus/allergies?

Hi. I had my pituitary glad removed approximately 30 years ago. I ve been on prednisone and synthroid or L-Thyroxine. I presently take 150Mcg of my thyroid medication and 10mg of prednisone daily. My thyroid meds have been increased about two years ago. However, I have headaches, muscle aches (lower body just recently) and fatigue. I also am not tolerant of most foods I eat. I m going to start a gluten-free diet, but there s a lot of talk about Armour instead of prescribed thyroid meds. I don t know what to do. I really like to be active but just can t find the energy I need.

I had thyroid cancer years ago and had a thyroidectomy and radiation ablation. I was on Synthroid 150mg for years, after menopause my doctor lowered my dosage and I became symptomatic, cold hands, dry skin, and weight gain of 12 lbs in less than 6 months ( I watch my weight and have maintained the same wt for 10 years and I haven t changed my diet or exercise.) He added Cytomel 5mg once daily at my urging the cold intolerance is slightly better, but not cured my hands are still cold and I am still too cold to get into the pool most days, my question is about the Cytomel dose. I have been doing some studying and most the literature calls for a dose in morning and one at night I was wondering if this would help my symptoms since I have had some improvement but not much. I have stopped the weight gain, but I have not lost the extra pounds I put on during the change. My thyroid levels are normal so my doctor has not changed the dosage, bu my symptoms are not. Thank you,
