Lately, I have been having a recurrence of minor symptoms of hyperthyroidism. Shaky hands, lessened appetite, weakness in my arms and legs and rapid weight loss. I was first diagnosed with hyperthyroidism after a period of extreme stress three years ago. I did the course of treatment and my last few tests showed all was well with me. I think it's returned because of recent stressors. I have a doctor's appointment tomorrow. I will probably have to go back on medication. Bleh! I hate taking pills.
