Symptoms Of Thyroid Virus
Dr days she suspects i had a thyroid storm in response to virus. Took blood, sent home told to keep taking my armour thyroid. Can these resolve themselves? I trust her, i just thought ts was er.
You did NOT: Have thyroid storm, which is a medical emergency with a 50% fatality rate. Armour thyroid is just ground up pig thyroid and is potentially dangerous. Also the levels cannot be monitored by routine thyroid testing. Brand name T4 replacement is much safer and more effective. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I have been dizzy on and off for three years now, and my doctor just says its viruses since my thyroid cancer. What do you think?
Vertigo/Dizzyness: One important distinction is to determine if you have dizzyness versus vertigo. Does the room feel like it spins around you? A physician also needs to evaluate your nervous and cardiovascular systems, and any sensitivity you have to thyroxine and your sugar levels (endocrine system).

Would strongly recommend that you see a primary care physician and be evaluated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had all the blood tests, thyroid antibodies, I tested negative for EBV about 11 month ago but had the Virus in about 1985. My doctor does not know. ?
I've been having fatigue & muscle pain. I recently had a virus so I thought this was Lyme but my doc suggested a thyroid test. Should I be concerned?
Maybe Lyme: It wouldn't hurt to test thyroid. Some of those symtoms could be lyme, but i would consider it more likely if you have had exposure to outdoor grassy or wooded areas, gardening, have outdoor pets, had a recent tick bite or rash, or if symptoms come and go over several weeks/months. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
