43yr, hypothy-62.5mcg TSH-0.53, sweating, pain while swallowing, weakness, slow breathing, insomnia, swelling hand, ankles, is it possible? Hyperthyroid at. 53
Possible: Hi. There's huge individual variation in response to any level of thyroid hormone replacement. Some of those symptoms COULD be your body's response to having a TSH of 0.53. I would try lowering your l-thyroxine dose to 50 mcg or 25 mcg and see if your symptoms improve with your TSH coming up a bit. However, many people feel fine with a TSH of 0.53, and it's possible your symptoms are not thyroid ...Read more

Am having difficulty sleeping & have strained breathing&burping. What shud be done stress echo or normal echo. While walking have no probs of breathing.
Gerd? Sleep apnea?: The fact that your shortness of breath does not get worse with walking or exercise would go against an ischemic or lack of blood flow scenario for which stress echo is necessary.

If this happens more during night I would consider possible gerd, aka reflux, and trying sleeping with 2 oil lows or take an anti acid Li protonix (pantoprazole) befor ...Read more
