I am 5 months postpartum and have been recently diagnosed withpostpartum thyroiditis. I have been struggling with hyper for about 6 weeks now and have been put on beta blockers to control symptoms until it either goes hypo or settles itself. Beta blockers have helped with the shakes, high pulse and bp, anxiety/panic attacks but not completely controlled. I have good days and bad and struggle to look after myself when I go through "episodes" let alone being able to care for DD. Just wondering f anyone if anyone else has or is going through this and would like to share their experience? How did it make you feel? How did you cope? How long did it last? W hat were your levels? TIA

Yes I did. It's horrible isn't it? I really feel for you
Mine was over active for about 8months (can't remember numbers) All the yucky symptoms to go with it, I took medication but it only went under instead and that lasted another 6-8months. I spent a lot of time in bed and unable to take my kids anywhere.
I wish I could tell you how to make it better, but only time helped me. It went normal on its own and I knew when because suddenly I wasn't tired, I had a clear head, could breath again and felt completely normal.
