Over Active Thyroid Brain Fog

Depression can be: Related to any number of factors. First, talk with your family doctor about your symptoms so that he can rule out other underlying medical issues such as a sleep disorder. If medically cleared, why not make an appointment with a geriatric psychiatrist? You have nothing to loose and potentially a lot to gain. ...Read more

Get level checked,,: This sounds like symptoms of hyperthyroidism (weight loss, anxiety) your TSH may be high and free t3 (liothyronine) T4 normal, but it may be somewhat high for you so you might need to get your meds adjusted after another check of your thyroid levels (tsh is usually attempted to be kept at around 3.0 miu/l in hashimoto's).

I get muscle twitching all over body for over year. Brain MRI showed lesions on frontal lobe not pathological. Do all lesions mean ms?
Lesions: Rarely do brain lesions cause muscle twitching. There are are many causes of brain MRI lesions. Some causes are benign/nonpathological (falsely termed) due to not portending a specific progressive/degenerative process such as gliosis/lesions seen in migraine patients. Some lesions are definitely pathological like in MS. But diagnosis is clinical - based on history of symptoms, MRI, LP, & bloodwork ...Read more

Hashimotos, thyroid function stable while off Medes past 12 months, antibodies really high, still get symptoms and swelling of thyroid?
That's not uncommon: Hi. Hashimoto's defined by thyroid autoantibodies, with or without a goiter, and normal thyroid function is fairly commonly seen (when it's looked for, that is). The degree of elevation of autoantibodies does not imply how soon thyroid function will begin to be lost. I recommend just follow your thyroid function periodically and anytime new symptoms arise. Good luck! ...Read more

Consider food allergies, environmental toxins, chronic infections including lyme disease etc. See http://bit.Ly/19pettq good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Constantly tired no energy hot sweats memory problems can't focus or concentrate could it be Addison's disease or adrenal fatigue I feel exhausted ?
Seek another reason: "Adrenal fatigue" is an dubious "pop" diagnosis given to people whose illnesses are probably psychosomatic -- not that this is not serious. Addison's would be worth ruling in/out but other entities -- even chronic carbon monoxide poisoning from a faulty home heater -- and a few dozen others need to be ruled out. Look also about how your life and your relationships are going. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends on dose: For graves disease, typical doses of rai are 5-25 mci. The dose depends on your uptake and size of gland. Some doctors give low doses to try to make your thyroid normal. But this usually does not work. Either the low dose leaves you still hyperthyroid, or it makes you hypo, just like a higher dose. For this reason, many just give a high-ish dose so you become hypo quickly and go on synthroid (thyroxine). ...Read more
