First blood result hyperthyroid, second time better but not perfect. Ultrasound was clear not enlarged, no nodule. What could cause this fluctuation?
Subacute thyroiditis: Hi. Fluctuations from normal to hyperthyroid falling back through normal to hypothyroid, then usually returning to normal is characteristic of a subacute thyroiditis. The hyper phase is self-limited and is due to leakage of stored hormone, not overproduction (so very different than Graves'). When the stored hormone is depleted, there is a hypo phase until the thyroid recovers and is normal again ...Read more

Im 27. Can a nodule on your thyroid cause hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism or either?
Thank you very much
Yes and no.: Yes. "Functional" nodules producing thyroid hormone independent of the feedback system involving thyroid stimulating hormone from your pituitary, can cause hyperthyroidism. Typically you do not develop hypothyroidism due to a single nodule. A nodule may also represent a benign or cancerous growth. Typically thyroid nodules are biopsied and various imaging helps categorize the type. Follow up w/ MD ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
27 yr. Old, female. No thyroid enlargement or any nodules upon palpation. What could this mean? Can someone have hyperthyroidism without any nodule?
A semi-solid nodule was found on my thyroid. My doctor said nothing about it and I have symptoms of hyperthyroidism. Should this be ignored?
Is it still okay to run/jog/long walk/exercise if I have hyperthyroidism and thyroid nodules? I will medicate my disease soon.
Having hyperthyroid symptoms after having radio active iodine a year ago to destroy thyroid. Also nodule on left side of neck. Is this possible?
It is possible: Radioiodine treatment for hyperthyroidism destroys the thyroid in 80-90% of cases but in some patients the condition can recur and symptoms can return. To find out if this has happened to you, you need to see a doctor and have your T4 and TSH levels checked. Were you ever started on thyroid hormone replacement? Possible your dose is too high. ...Read more
Hyperthyroidism for 5 years. Had a sonar done and a nodule 13mm in size was found. Extreme palpitaions, tired, depressed. Is this normal?
Hyperthy & nodule: Hi. No, it is not "normal" to be hyperthyroid and have a nodule. If you've had it for 5 years, is someone treating it? Is the cause of the hyperthyroidism known (i.e., Graves' vs. toxic adenoma/s)? If it's Graves', the nodule needs a needle biopsy to see if it's cancer. If it's a toxic adenoma, a thyroid scan will tell if the nodule is the cause of the hyperthy (those nodules aren't cancerous). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
