Recently told by my doctor I have a hyper thyroid. I have no family history of this. But I do have an auto immune disease. Getting answers hasn't been easy lately. Been on Methimazole for the past 5 weeks. I take 10 mg. a day. Wondering if anyone had any bad sad effects being on Methimazole. I am having alot of swelling on left side. Have two bumpy spots that recently came up the past two days. Been running a slight fever and alot of aching in my left ear and if I eat I start to swell more and it affects my swallowing. Anyone had any of these side effects? Like to get some answers what other meds works really well. Any personal experiences or insight of whats going on would be great appreciated.
I seen my doctor this week and he was pretty sure its my salivary gland. Having an ultrasound this coming Monday. Tempted to come off my med for a couple of days and see if the swelling would go down. Really causing me pain in my face when I work out.
Hope to hear from someone who has gone through this. I never had thyroid problems before. This is all new to me!
