Feeling Hopeless

... diagnosed is, the blood testing methods are woefully outdated and tons of factors can seem to skew the results. Doctors with horse blinders on just look at the numbers and say your thyroid is ok but they don't factor in anything else. We need change! ... (5 replies)
... It took a few weeks, but I think my thyroid numbers continued to go down after I posted this and I gradually felt better and saw improvement. ... (7 replies)
... just wanted to know where the "optimal" on paper would be if optimal is usually upper third of the normal range for many. I still can't figure how you got those numbers but I'm grateful that you did the math for me. ... (4 replies)

... After six months on the Erfa Thyroid, I still have a lot of heart pounding. It started when I went up to my current dose of 90 mg. My numbers are great, and at times I feel absolutely marvellous, but many nights the heart pounding is a real factor in whether I fall asleep, and it can even be bad enough to wake me from a sound sleep. I have heard others say that they... (2 replies)
... after doing some routine blood work they told me my thyroid numbers were a little high. I believe my TSH was around 6.5. ... (3 replies)
... ot feeling like labs aren't warranted since they were "normal" last time. If I would have better luck starting with ped, I would likely do that. I'm not sure if thyroid is contributing, but with those numbers, I feel like it should be ruled out for sure before more invasive things are done. ... (3 replies)
... Thanks for your response, I haven't gotten my actual numbers yet. The doc called while I was in the middle of something and honestly I was caught off guard by the whole thing I didn't even think to ask any questions. ... (13 replies)
... If you could post your blood test numbers and the ranges for each value it would be helpful for people to see where you're at. ... (13 replies)
... I wonder if you have any suggestions about questions I should ask and things I should be aware of before my appointment. If I am on the cusp and my numbers 'could go either way' would you push for medication or is better to wait and see? ... (13 replies)
... I had my first post TT labs Friday and the results were just posted online. I'm in shock because the numbers are so close to the SAME as they have been for the past year. We suspected long ago that my thyroid had gone kaput, so I guess this confirms it. ... (0 replies)
... Maybe you can contact some local thyroid group :confused: (we have them online too). Some have asked their pharmacy if they knew a doctor that is open to other thyroid supplements besides levothyroxine (doctors prescribing natural thyroid hormone and/or synthetic T3 with levothyroxine often "think outside the box" and treat their patients' symptoms rather than just numbers). (9 replies)
... I have been on levothyroxine 100 mcg for 6+ months after having my TSH come back high and my "thyroxine, serum, free" come back normal. I noticed some relief of some symptoms but overall thought that something else must still be wrong with me. I recently went to a rheumatologist (given my family history, it seemed the best place to start) and have just started receiving test... (1 replies)
... If you need the T3, you need the T3. If you have some left, then maybe you could just try it for a few weeks to see how you do. Make sure you get a full thyroid panel after 6 weeks, though . ... (6 replies)
... this summer that I saw one I thought would work for me. She's a woman and young. So last week I got an appointment with her. I actually didn't need to raise the thyroid problem with her. She did that herself while reading my chart and asking questions. ... (9 replies)
... There are 2 types of hypothyroidism. The most common type, primary, is when the thyroid gland itself fails to produce hormones. This is often autoimmune based, from antibodies attacking the thyroid and destroying it over time. ... (1 replies)
... I have been hypothyroid for 15 + years. About 4 years ago I started having flipflop results but still presenting with a slow thyroid. I have been seeing a endocrinologist for about 2 years now and I still keep doing this. She calls me hyperthyroid but I still feel hypo. Now she told me that shes making the lab rerun my labs as the results don't make since. My TSH shows I am... (1 replies)
... and even noted in my file that he didn't believe I had a thyroid issue but put me on a super low dose of synthroid because I disputed the range on the testing saying up to 5 was "normal". ... (4 replies)
