My md a month ago said due to a recent thyroid test TSH high she referred me to an ENDO. I went to him and i was asked alot of questions, than he checked my neck. That day i had an ultrasound and doc found two med sized nodules. So at that point he decided to get them biopsied. Recently the results came back Suspicious for Follicular neoplasm and Hurthle Cell type. Last year my md diagnosed me with hyperthyroid and my tsh was alittle elevated abit but t3 and t4 were normal. The endo dr recently said she put me on wrong med which was Metha mizole 2 times a day Now he thinks i am now Hypo, My tsh is real high. I have surgery in Aug to remove part my thyroid to see if cancer, he wanted out anyways so down road nodules would not cause Swallowing problems ect. I was told 20 to 30 percent chance of it being cancer Is that correct??

Some of my nails are pulled away from the nail bed and have a milky white appearance. My thyroid levels are in the normal range, but I have nodules on my thyroid glands which are being watched. I removed my acrylics a week ago. My nails would grow out lifting out then rip off. I was to my dermatologist today and he said if my thyroid levels are ok he didn t know what could be causing this. He took some of the nail and looked at it under a microscope and said he did not see any fungus. Do you think I should have more testing done on my thyroid glands? Thank you

I had a baby 18 months ago and previous to that suffered from Hyperthyroid due to a virus. I was suffering from significant tachycardia and excessive sweating at that time. RAI Uptake was done etc, Virus resolved rendering my thyroid now Hypoactive for the last 4 years. I am currently taking Synthroid 150mcg. I have been a runner my entire life however first trimester complications caused that to cease. I am not just getting back into it and training for a half marathon. I have noted that my heart rate even after 5 minutes of running is around 186 bpm. I went to my GP to have my TSH and T4 checked to be sure I wasn t over medicated. Everything was normal. His response to this high BPM was to add a Beta-blocker. I have leary of taking it because I have read it will greatly affect my performance while running. I also get a quivering type feeling here and there through out the day in my heart. I get extremely flush almost purple in my face when running. I m wondering if there could something significantly more wrong than the thyroid affect as my GP has mentioned. I asked for a stress test and he said I didn t need one. I am 34 years old, slightly overweight still from post-partum. no other medical conditions, no history of any previous medical conditions other than Gestational Induced Hypertension and ecclampsia which clearly has resolved and Gestational Diabetes which also resolved.
