I'm sorry you had 2 panic attacks. It most have been very scary. I hope it is not your heart. It might just be the change you experienced with the new dose. As you know, I'm still on Methimazole so I don't have much to share but I do wish you the very best with finding the right dose. I'm glad that overall things are going well and that you are able to take care of your boys. It is a blessing having gone through so much and finally being able to take care of them again.
By the way, I might be heading in the TT direction. My last appointment wasn't very promising. My ALT was elevated but less than it was when I was diagnosed with GD. The Dr. kept talking about RAI and surgery at my last visit and mentioned that he didn't like my ALT being elevated. He lowered my dose from 30mg to 10mg/day and will run extensive labs in 3 wks. I haven't been feeling well these last few days (tired, hot). My fT4 was hypo at my appt so the decrease in dose in that regard made sense but I'm wondering now if the big change is making me go hyper again. Anyway, I thought I share this with you since you had the liver enzyme issues. Mine is not very high (77, normal <32) but it still worries me. The Dr at the ER when I was diagnosed told me that hyperthyroidism affects the liver and attributed the elevated #s to it (then the # was 103). I also had been taking Tylenol b/c I had a lot of headaches then. Anyway, that is where I'm. I'm scared as you can imagine. I'm afraid that at my next appt I will have to decide b/w TT or RAI if my liver enzymes are not within the normal range. My Dr says that he starts getting worried when they are double the normal range. I've read that triple is what is used for concerns but my Dr is using double.
Hope you find the right dose for you. Just a thought. I think I remember reading that there is liquid synthroid? Maybe something that might help you find the right dose for you? I know liquid is easier to manage sometimes.
