Can hypoparathyrodism cause people to have seizures and what are other symptoms of the diasese and is it worse than hypothyroidism?
Yes, siezure happen: Symptoms of hypoparathyroidism are mainly due to low calcium in the blood - cramps, abnormal sensation, twitching, spasm of the hand, and seizure. Whereas, the symptoms of hypothyroidism are mainly due to low metabolism - tiredness, lethargy, low heart rate, dry, flaky skin, hair loss, deep voice etc. Both are equally bad in full-fledged stage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hper and hypoglycemia seem to share many symptoms, which symptom is most uniquely diagnostic for hypo or hyper?
Hypoglycemia: Hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia actually don't share many symptoms at all in my experience. A low blood sugar can be life threatening and your body does everything it can to let you know you're in trouble. You can get anxious, jittery, tachycardic, sweaty and even die if you don't get help. Hypoglycemia is usually asymptomatic but if the sugar gets high enough it can cause coma and death. ...Read more
What are common neurological symptoms for seronegative antiphospholipid syndrome and once treated do these symptoms go away?
Yes and no!: First, all acla are of not the same significance, since the igm anticardiolipin ab is more likely to cause blood vessel blockage than the igg, which is worse than the iga! second, if a mini-stroke has occured, there may be complete resolution.

Many, many things: Most overweight people think/hope they have an under active thyroid gland, so doc can give them thyroid replacement and they'll lose the weight (i remember one case in 40 years practice).

I do thyroid screening tests routinely. ...Read more
Big difference: See prior answers re: hyperthyroidism. Hyperparathyroidism is entirely different disease.It's a hormonal disorder (with a feedback mechanism in the similar part of the brain); it is even located in thyroid gland (4 small glands). But it controls calcium/bone metabolism in the body. Suspicion is when serum calcium is high on a routine blood test (no sx usually); DX made by measuring parathormone. ...Read more
What type of thyroid disease would cause an individual to toggle between Hypothyroidism and Hyperthyroidism symptoms?
MS: Symptoms of ms can be mimicked by other neurological conditions. But a supporting clinical history with supporting MRI findings can clinch the diagnosis. Some of the MRI appearances are more suggestive of ms than others. A neurologist will be the best judge to come to a conclusion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Possibly: Low thyroid levels affect every part of your body, including your brain. Depression can occur with hypothyroidism, not usually anxiety, though anxiety is common in general.

No: Once diagnosed with any thyroid condition, the condition known as "thyroid eye disease" can occur at any time, independent of the thyroid status of the body. So in your case, the puffy eyelids is due to the thyroid condition, not the over-treating or under-treating of the thyroid in the body. ...Read more
Can you list some key differences between fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome? I have most symptoms of both, so need some way of distinction.
FM vs. CFS: Fm is a generalized systemic condition that is characterized by widespread aching or pain throughout the body. To be included in the diagnosis of fm, this pain should be located in at least three out of four quadrants of the body or along the entire spine for a minimum of three months. Cfs may be distinguished from fm on the basis of the presence of cognitive dysfunction, which is absent in fm. ...Read more

Yes: The best way, of course, is by treating the graves' disease and getting the thyroid levels back to normal. But that can take time, so if symptoms such as heart pounding or racing, shakiness, or feeling nervous or jittery are causing problems, many doctors give a kind of blood pressure medicine called a bets-blocker to help with these. Examples would be propranolol, atenolol, or metoprolol. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Low odds: The usual risk from mother to child is about 3-5%, so in your favor. Need environmental influence to result in ms, and therefore, risk increases with prior infectious mononucleosis, cigarette smoking, and low bodily vitamin d. If these risks are controlled, chances remain on low side. ...Read more

Not common but...: MS is not common as less than 1 in 1100 people get it, but that doesn't mean you don't have it. Anxiety might cause some of the symptoms but you deserve careful evaluation by a neurologist. A brain MRI may show evidence. But be aware that Lyme disease is MUCH more common than MS and often has symptoms that mimic MS so I advise seeing a "Lyme-literate" doctor as well: http://tinyurl.com/j8vleow ...Read more

Not usually: Pain is rather a frequent problem in MS, but heel pain would not be typical, unless there is an accompanying leg weakness and spasticity, which would cause abnormal gait, and secondary plantar fasciitis.
