I have had HYPO thyroid since I was 6 yrs old. I am now 42. This past October my blood test results showed a complete turn around. I now test positive for HYPER and my antibodies are at 267 and should be at 96. I had a thryoid nuclear scan and it showed HYPER. My endo has put me on meds called Methimazole...its an antithryoid medicine. This is suppose to regulate the thryoid out and then we will see which way my body of right now...even tho the blood work shows body has hypo symptoms. I go back in 6 weeks for more tests. Has anyone else gone thru this or have u taken this medicine?

how are you feeling now? has it been under control? i wonder if this happens very often? i am hypo thyroid but also have fibromyalgia (which some doctors think is related). hope you are feeling better now.

thanks for asking! I am actually feeling lots better. MY energy level has improved a great deal. Im now taking 1/4 of a tablet daily. Hopefully I can be weaned of all the meds before too long
