Dear Loyiso

The symptoms you are experiencing may relate to a general medical condition such as hyperthyroidism and/or a mental health difficulty. I would advise that you consult with your medical practitioner first who will assess, treat and may make appropriate referrals to other health professionals.

Dear Loyiso, wow, you' ve been through a lot, so sorry about that. The symptoms you' ve listed above are ALL the same symptoms I had whilst I was hyperthyroid - 6 doctors and 1 psychiatrist could not diagnose me. I' ve since had a total thyroidectomy and feel great. If you wanna know more you can call me - my number is (082) 685 1773. (The best thing is that I can drive again with total confidence.)
