Nexium and thyroid disease

Common Questions and Answers about Nexium and thyroid disease

nexium

I was on this regime for 6 weeks in total and my blood test results haven't changed beyond the normal fluctutations. My endo has suggested I try adding Prednizone 30mg per day and Nexium (which he assures me will help the reflux and heartburn that has been causing me to throw up 30-odd percent of the previous regime). He suggested Lithium as another option but ultimately decided on the Prednizone because he wasn't sure what effect the Lithium might create when added to Neo Mercazole.
I get the occasional acid reflux and heartburn, but generally swamp it with yogurt and crackers and I'm good. I feel like I have the world's worst gas. I apologize all the time to my husband because I fart (and burp) a lot and successively. I'm bloated beyond belief. It's been worse lately, but I've been really conservative with my holiday indulgences and have actually lost some weight.
For background, he also has GERD for which he takes Nexium, IBS, HS (a skin disorder for which he uses a gel and takes Solodyn), he has sleep apnea and PVC's. My concern is that all this stuff and all the meds he still is unable to work, cannot do physical activity, despite eating very little he stays big, his chest hurts when he walks from one end of our house to the other (and we don't live in a mansion) and he stays swollen.
Esomeprazole (nexium) and all other proton pump inhibitor have a black box warning - hypomagnesemia (magnesium deficiency). Symptoms of magnesium deficiency are many but include constipation, palpitations and fatigue. Not all hot nodules produce symptoms but your nodule may be the cause of palpitations and fatigue. If a hot nodule causes hyperthyroidism, it can be treated with anti thyroid drugs, radioactive iodine, or surgery.

She did a bunch of blood work including the PTH and is sending me to the surgeon who specializes in thyroid cancer and parathyroid disease, not saying I have C, but due to the fact she thinks the thyroid has invaded sensitive areas I need the best surgeon out there and if it turns out it is C then i will be under the best care.
I went back to my doctor with a copy of the blood tests from the internist and nothing was done. I took it as I needed to deal with it and started Nexium for heartburn and reflux (which has helped). After four years, I decided I have to do something. I went back to my doctor asked for a cholesterol check and a check on the c reactive protein test. I had my diseased galbladder removed. I have had an upper and lower gi and barium swallow. My LDL cholesterol is now 200.
This forum is primarily for cancer, nodules, hyperthyroidism and unusual thyroid conditions. The description you give is nonspecific. In general, we don't recommend armour and we target a TSH of 0.5-2.5 using levothyroxine (and in some cases cytomel).
I have to look back on my records and check that 9 out. but it roughly was around there. It's a miserable symptom of thyroid disease. And the longer it's there the more damage can be done. Try to keep it under control until your thyroid levels go back to where they belong for you.
So he took me off that and I am on Zopiclone for sleeping, and Naproxine for pain, and Nexium for GERD. The Muscle spasms have returned. The Doctor even had me on Metoclopromide (motility drug used for chemotherapy patients to get the food down) I notice that when I eat bread or meat...everything just slows down...and I bloat..I look like the Micheline man. I haven't had an ANA test done yet, and I noticed that you suggest spending time in the sun, would a tanning booth work the same??
And, of course, I have read a lot of research regarding soy and thyroid disease. And like I stated, since I have stopped eating soy products, the symptoms have all but disappeared (I still have the low basal temperature in the morning, though). The only thing is that I was eating ice cream last year when I had the episode. I am going to have to see if it had any form of soy in it. If so, it will confirm my suspicions of thyroid problems.
He told me Sjogren's is a progressive disease and sometimes the lab and biopsies don't reveal the disease until it has progressed. Sometimes this takes years. I do know that Sjogren's usually is secondary to some other autoimmune disease.
If doctors will rule out side effects of drugs, peripheral thyroid hormone resistance, low T3 due to the liver problems and autoimmune thyroid disorders, the iodine transfer test may be administered.
I was diagnosed with Graves Disease in Sep 06 and thyca a few months later. I started getting night sweats after my TT and RAI, but that could also be cause by being kicked into menopause at 46. It sounds like your husband's whole endocrine system is messed up. It's a shame the government won't admit to all the **** that those serving in the Gulf was exposed to. I co-worker of mine has memory problems associated from GWS. I tell her that's how I feel with my brain fog.
One week ago, as symptoms and pain worsened, she went to a different doctor who first did a physical exam and said she had an enlarged thyroid and wanted to do two ultrasounds. One on the thyroid and one in the abdominal area because of all her pain and discomfort. A complete blood work up was also ordered. Tests results showed multiple tiny nodules on the thyroid and a completely dysfunctional gallbladder.

Nexium and Lyrica. I also take a multivitamin, B6 & B12 + Folate, Omega 3 supp., and iron. Sorry this is so long! I'm wondering where to go from here. I'm miserable and it's been 2 years since this all started. My symptoms are not constant, which is nice, but they are getting more and more frequent and debilitating. I rarely feel normal, though I do sometimes feel pretty good with just a little tingling or some heartburn or something.
I stopped looking for answer for this past year and have just taken meds, nuerontin, beta blocker, nexium, BP meds, singular. I just had thyroid blood work about 4 months ago which were neg, BUT with all these cyst and tumors in my endochrine system, there has to be a problem here. I do have a appointment for a endo in oct., but I've been to so many with NO answers that I don't have my hopes up. Has anyone had these thyoid problems and symptoms?
Anyway, has anyone with gastritis and thyroid disease seen improvement with thyroid hormone?
TThen if the problem is still there you need some further investigations, maybe a barium swallow, and a thyroid ultrasound. etc.... Thyroid disease can run in families, so just dont rule it out. I have thyroid disease, and so does my brother also ,so it could be thyroid related. Also there are a few different thyroid diseases, all giving similar, but different symptoms,which can overlap one another.
If your doc thinks the TSH test is the golden rule of thyroid disease, you're wasting your time and money. Find a doctor who will listen and who knows something about thyroid disease and CARES about how you FEEL - and does NOT rely on a TSH test result number for a diagnosis OR for adjusting thyroid hormone dosage. If you have a "lump" in your throat, insist that an ultrasound be done immediately.
Start taking Nexium again and QUIT stopping it when feeling good! Reminder to self: Laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR) !!
I have an Endo and would recommend having one as they know much more about the thyroid system and the chemicals we produce and need to keep the body humming. Did you have blood work done? Any hyper or hypo symptoms along with the ear and throat issues? Hang in there....I am hoping someone can provide some ideas for relief too!
Hello all! I am 21 and was diagnosed with Graves' disease and hyperthyroidism about four months ago. Since I've been on the medication I've gained 26 lbs (130 to 156 at 5'4"). I'm going to have RAI within the next two months and from reading these forums it sounds like weight loss isn't going to be easy on synthroid. I exercise 5 times a week and am trying to maintain a healthy diet.
3) I also have disk problems with spine and my protstate leves have nbeen elevated lately (enlarged prostate) have reflux and take nexium so i dont need this. How can I live normanally without my thyroid and wont the hormone balance crerate additional diseases. ..
We are now considering Celiac, as I bloat immediately after eating bread, and the excessive gas was a major problem. My mother has had her thyroid out, and my brother is on thyroid meds also. My grandmother had type 2 diabetes. I'm so tired of feeling terrible, I have given you my brief history. Based on the above information, What in the heck is going on with me? Do I have some kind of cervical cancer? Celiac Disease, Hormone problems, or thyroid problems????
I really only need the doctors to prescribe medication, and the only medication that seems to do a good job is Nexium, Provigil, Metoprolol, and whatever headache medication I try (because it gets rid of at least SOME of my headaches). I'll finally be seeing the cardiologist in late March...just a few more weeks, then maybe I'll know more about what the heck is going on with my heart. I still have the PVCs (abnormal.premature beats) occasionally even while on the medication.
Long story short, she got rid of her severe GERD and LPR and gastritis taking betaine HCL with pepsin supplements (increases stomach acid) and digestive enzyme supplements. The digestive enzymes contain proteases but pepsin is also a protease. Proteases are enzymes that digest protein. Hypothyroidism is one cause of low stomach acid but that corrects itself once you are properly treated. Excerpt from Enzyme Stuff - Digestive Disorders and Enzymes...
I went to a chiroprator that gave me a questionare about health sympotms and he recommeded me having my thyroid checked. I am thinking a food allergy, graves disease or pancreatitis. I am so miserable from being sick all the time I just want a diagnosis so I can begin to feel better again. I have also being precribed medicine to help with the diarrhea and cramping and I am taking probitics as well with still no improvement.
