Very little sleep and heart palpitations - any advice on eliminating the palpitations?

tions. I have spoken with my doctor, and there is not much that he can do because there is really nothing medically wrong. My blood pressure, cholesterol, and sugar levels are all normal or below normal. My thyroid is fine. An EKG showed nothing. Though I do have stress, I can't say I have been having panic attacks. I find that if I can get more sleep, the palpitations are less frequent, but this is not always the case. I don't feel as if there is anything wrong with me so to speak, but the palpitations are truly annoying. Changing my lifestyle is not an option at this point because financially, I cannot afford to not work both jobs. Is there a supplement, vitamin, etc., that has been known to reduce or eliminate palpitations?...

How can I stop"Divine Strake"the 700 ton bomb set to go off in Nevada? How will I know my voice' ll be heard?

y the time you get it to the enemy, they've high tailed it to Dearborn ,Michigan. (Some "Bunker Buster" right?) Yes, it is 700 tons. Look it up on line. I just want to know, how can we stop this madness? I am not a "Chicken Little" as one person rudely commented. The govt. told westerners in Utah, Idaho, Arizona and Nevada (et. al.) that nuclear tests were safe 40 and 50 years ago and there is a whole generation of men who cannot father children here in the west. There were children that looked like monsters at birth, women with thyroid problems that could only come from radioactive poisoning, people who died from unusual illnesses that only result from nuclear bombs. This 700 ton blast will stir up all that old sand. Look it up at and do a search on "Divine Strake."...

Is there anyone that has a thyroid condition and has had children ?

etting me. I would really like to hear some success stories please. Thank-you...

Premature Ovarian Failure and/or Thyroid problems?

ar I've had screwed up (missed or every 3-4 months) periods. I've been going to the doctor for it and after some bloodwork they are suggesting it might be Premature Ovarian Failure (POF) although still trying some other things first so not really diagnosed at this point. Anyone with thyroid problems been in a similar situation? or had missed period and possible POF that turned out not to be POF?...

How do I get a doctor to treat low thyroid hormone levels?

pothyroidism, but say they see no need to initiate treatment. She is now feeling worse. She is cold all of the time, her fatigue has worsened, and now she is experiencing numbness in her fingers and feet. I am so frustrated with doctors I don't know what to do. She has tried pushing herself to exercise more thinking that this would help (and after one doctor's comment that maybe she should try eating some salad), but then all she can do is sleep for hours afterwards because she is so wasted....




Hypothyroidism Knowledge Base

I have hypothyroid disease and have had it for 6 yrs...?

ll kinds of test on me before finding out it was hypothyroid disease. Everytime I try to take my synthroid I end up stopping because it makes me a period ...all the time and a lot. My doctor said its because the med is trying to regulate through my body and it can take up to 6 weeks. Ive never taken it that long thoug because I dont want the constant bleeding..and I am trying to conceive...cant do that with all the bleeding. Thyroid disease effects your metabolism and hormones. Does this happen to anyone else on thryroid medications? Im 25 if that helps anyone. Also I have irregular periods due to ovarian cysts and just getting off the depo shot after 6 years. When I dont take my med I dont have regular periods but as soon as I take it I bleed within 2 days. Any thoughts?...


does anyone here suffer from it? how would you describe your symptoms?

Hypothyroidism -but now fluctuating thyroid test?

y thyroid was pretty normal, meaning that the pills were working.So I took a blood test last week and now the tests state that my thyroid levels are actually depleting in it is going the opposite way. As in my thyroid is probably normal and because I am still on the pills, they are creating a hyperthyroid affect. has this ever happened to anyone? I thought that I would have this forever and that I would have to me on meds forever, so now I'm confused.My doc told me that I could basically get off meds now and check my blood in another 6 weeks to see if it is normal or back to hypo mode. normally I would love to get off of meds, but I really don't want to keep switching back and forth between being on them and not, so do you think it would be ok to stay on them and check in a month 4change?...




Nodules Knowledge Base

Does anyone else have health anxieties that are controlling their life?

nd think for sure it is cancer. Several months ago my doctor found 3 thyroid nodules and I had one biopsied and it was negative but during that time I already convinced myself I had thyroid cancer and I couldn't eat and I cried all the time. I'm suppose to go back to the doctor for another sonogram of my neck to see if they have grown and I won't go because I'm deathly afraid of doctors. Now I have been getting hot flashes so I've convinced myself it must be lymphoma. By the way my thyroid blood work is fine. Am I just one sick puppy or what? Please no mean comments....

Problems gaining weight?

I also struggle to gain weight, and it's an embarrassing thing, being thin and having people look at you like you have an eating disorder. I have done a lot of research on this issue and talked to my physician, and found that the best way to gain weight is to simply increase your calorie intake by about 500 calories per day, and do weight training to build muscle. It's actually very unhealthy to be underweight, just as it to be overweight. It can cause serious health problems. So if anyone has this problem, maybe talk to your doctor first it could be a thyroid problem. Just thought I'd comment, sorry that it's not a question....
