Hi Shell, my name is Thomas. I've been hypothyroid since the start of Dec 2011. Before then I was hyper for 4 months. That's when I stopped smoking ciggerettes. Now don't smoke or drink anymore. None of my family members have a thyroid disorder. Had a radioactive iodine uptake test which shows thyroiditis. Guess I was wondering what was causing you thyroid trouble. Either way smoking may not be best while symptoms are present. Read that ibuprofen or aspirin may help with inflammation, Don't get me wrong I'm not a doctor. But Recently I've been needing one to determine what is causing my Thyroid Disorder. been having difficult sleeping at nights waking up four or five o'clock in the morning with different blood pressure readings during the day. Mine are around 144/89 and 76bpm sometimes much lower. Try going for a walk around park to get some thoughts together. God bless you, hope you start feeling better.
