So I went in and had blood work that showed I had low levels of TSH making me hyperthyroid. So they wanted to start me on treatment and radiation. Well I am strictly nursing she is 6mo eats tiny amounts of real food I had to stop nursing 24 hours once do to a medical reason we both caved after she refused to eat for 16 hours. If I go out she refuses even the pumped milk. anyway my dr talked to someone about it. They said it might be postpartum hyperthyroid so they are giving me 3 to 4mons to see if there are changes. my dr told me this and gave me a list of things to report. I lied and said I had none. I do my neck hurts bad like I am being slightly chocked. Its beengetting worse I dont want to stop nursing and I am wondering if throat/ neck pain/ small lump are normal with postpartum thyroiditisView Thread
