Will Being Hyperthyroid Make You Short Winded
If your thyroid is under active will this make you feel tired and run down? What can you do to make your thyroid normal?
If you have low thyroid, will it be more difficult to get physically fit? Will you be exhausted more easily when working out?
Depends on T4: People with subacute thyroiditis can go through a "hyperthyroid" phase, where T4 is high, and you may have symptoms of hyper (palpitations, tremor, maybe lightheaded). This can be followed weeks-months later by hypothyroidism (cold, groggy, fatigued, etc). In most cases, thyroid returns to normal. Hashimotos thyroiditis is usually more chronic. ...Read more
If you have hypothyroidism as a teen (& you're short), and your doc gives you thyroid pills, can that make you grow taller?
Was growth stunted?: Prolonged hypothyroidism with very elevated TSH can cause growth slow down in actively growing children. It is unusual to present like this when a child is seen annually by a pediatrician who plots height on a growth chart. If hypothyroidism was indeed profound then growth would resume with treatment, but final height may still be compromised by accelerating bone age with rx from initial delay. ...Read more
Can being completely inactive for 2-3 months (zero activity no walks nothing) cause you to become tired and weak when you attempt to re start!?
Oral meds: Although they have been largely replaced by inhalers, methylxanthine products like theophylline are still available for use as a pill. These are bronchodilator products that are taken daily & have many side effects ( it is a cousin of caffine). Oral steroids are also used occasionally but send it everywhere instead of just to the lungs. Again side effects can add up.Discuss with your dr. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is criteria to get oxygen tank prescribed? Need diangosis lung or heart condition to get O2 tank? Seriously SOB. Feel O2 will make it easier.
See a doctor: Possible causes for shortness of breath include heart disease, lung disease and anemia. Each is treated differently, and oxygen may or may not be indicated. Best to see a doctor to determine the cause of the shortness of breath so it can be treated appropriately. Sudden shortness of breath should be evaluated immediately. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
On the contrary: Not normal. Just the opposite: most asthma "reliever" inhalers have derivatives of adrenaline ("adrenergic"), make you hyper. But...tho adrenergic inhalers stimulate most muscles (tremor, shaking), they also relax cramped smooth bronchial tube muscles that are choking off the flow of air to the alveoli, and suddenly you can breathe. This may finally let you cough out mucus, and get some sleep. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Different mechanism: Shortness of breath is a sensation and not always correlated to cardiac or lung function. Adrenaline works briefly on dilating the airways and is not enough to help people in an asthma attack. The shortness of breath sensation from adrenaline (for some people) is more from anxiety and/or hyperventilation. ...Read more
Probably not: Hypothyroidism or raynaud's disease are not known to increase the absorption of alcohol from the stomach, so should not make a person get drunk faster. However, if a person feels cold or has cold hands, he may drink more or drink faster, because he wants the alcohol to warm up his hands. Alcohol is a vasodilator, but extra blood flowing to the skin and hands will lower one's core body temperature! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Definitely: Many drugs promote falling. Valium and all the members of its class can promote falling through multiple mechanisms including loss of coordination, relaxation of muscles and lack of clear thinking. If you are not tired before taking benzos, this risk is present. When tired, the risk is magnified. ...Read more
I have cvid. My numbers were 870. How much higher should they be to make me feel better and be pneumonia free?
CVID: Not a fair question. The immune specialist should follow your IgG levels (yes) but what is more important is that you have fewer infections, are not requiring antibiotics as frequently, less hospitalizations or er visits, no adverse reactions to infusions, and that the correct replacement igiv has been chosen which suits your immune deficiency best. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If you have a mood disorder is medication supposed to make your excesses only manageable relative to you or can they completely make you "normal"?
Smooths them out: By "mood disorder" i suspect you are referring to bipolar disorder (bpd). Effective medication for bpd will smooth out the ups and downs. The lows hopefully won't be as low but the highs, which many people with bpd actually like (unlike the people around them), won't be as high. That doesn't mean that you become "normal". From my experience there aren't many people who are "normal". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
