Anyone else out there suffer from mood swings to the point that you don’t really know why you said what you said to your nearest and dearest and what triggered it off in the first place, all my levels are correct and fine but I feel like I’m pressing the self destruct button sometimes and pushing the people closest to me away, don’t get me wrong I don’t get down about it but I just don’t understand why I do what I do sometimes and its not acceptable or fair on my other half.

Been told it’s like living with Jekyll and Hyde!

Anyone else have experience of it and do you have any tips on how to manage it?

p.s Im Hypo pit in case you are wondering

Danny.

Hi Danny, i have only just been diagnosed with a "Non Funtional" PT.
I read your comments with a big sigh of relief !!
Jekyll & Hyde is an understatement on my behalf....its like i know i am doing or saying the wrong things but cant stop it from happening.
Looking back i suppose i have been like it for nearly 2 years. Now that i have been diagnosed with it i seem to have a little control over things, maybe i can accept that something is wrong and take time to go over what i have said and at last can apologise to the person i have upset (normally my better half)
My better half can now see that she will be getting "the old me" back !! and she is so relieved.

Baz, how's it going? Have you seen yr Dr or contacted yr Endo specialist? Sounds like they owe you & yr family some attention - it's not fair that you feel like this, nor that yr family bears the brunt of it.
Good luck getting it sorted asap

Hi

Hope you get some results from the new blood tests and endo - if they give you the results its worth looking up the values compared to 'normal' as I found that was the cause of a lot of my problems, the docs just got me within the normal range, but my requirements were much higher than that, although still 'normal'. Now i'm a different person - much less moody and feel calmer - also hot/cold problems more or less gone, so it may be well worth checking this out.

Good luck and hope things settle down soon.

Xx J

[quote="Pillsdaily]Baz,
I had my op some 40 yrs ago. (now hypo pit) I moved area 37/38 yrs ago and all meds stopped due to 'my notes not following me'.
I did not realise how below par I was, but after another year to year & 1/2 I was in hospital for 1 week and completely retested.
When I tried to understand my levels in relation to amount of meds, it was explained to me that the tests are not "exact" due to the very small levels that they are trying to measure. None the less it was a huge boost to be back on meds.
Just recently I was on GH but felt little to no difference, so elected to stop the GH, it was then that the near violent, mood swings started.
Am now back on GH and with the awareness that the sudden unpredictable bad temper outbursts need to be controlled. These now seem to be coming under control, BUT I now make sure I have at least 8 hours sleep. Maybe its imagination but I feel that by not being tired, makes it easier think and so reduce to outburst to a more socially acceptable reaction. [/quote]
