A good friend of mine had the same thing several years back, she ended up having hers partially removed, now just takes theroxine daily and leads a completely normal life. Good luck.Thanks - will see how I feel after the operation. I'm not safe to dive at the moment anyway, with the symptoms I have.
It's a bugger when I can't even pick up a drink without spilling it all over myself because my hands are shaking so badly. :frown:
Anita, that must be so frustrating as you say :frown: I hope the op goes well and you get the medication levels sorted so you can get back in the water.Anyone on here had problems with their thyroid? Are you still able to dive?
I'm currently barred from diving but hoping this is a short term difficulty. I didn't even get to finish my OW. And its very frustrating!
Very well done and believe me, muscle weakness and poor memory are the sign of a really good diver. :embarasseWell here's an update - I'm still suffering Grave's Disease, which caused my over-active-thyroid. They didn't operate but over medicated me and made it worse. Hopefully things are now a little more stable.
The good news is that after nearly a year of trying I finally passed my OW on Sunday!!!! Despite the loss of muscle strength and memory problems I actually got through.
I still can't believe it! Perserverence does pay off.
Now planning a few more dives before I start my Advanced
