  1. Thyroid Disease General Discussion Forum
    Firstly, I'm sorry if it's not okay to post what I already posted on another forum, but I'm really really really worried. This has been my story so far: I started having extreme fatigue on February this year, and beside maybe increased anxiety, that was the only Hyper symptom I had. I had three...

    So I'm new to my thyroid disorder all together. I found a doctor willing to prescribe Naturally desiccated thyroid medication and have gone to him for three months with new labs each month. My labs are sort of crazy so please let me write the months of labs and see what you think is going on and...
  3. Thyroid Disease General Discussion Forum
    Hi! I just joined this forum so please correct me if anything is wrong. August 1st my TSH was 2.87[0.47-4.13] and free T4 11[10-17]. At my doctor's appointment in October they thought these were good numbers but since I still felt very tired I asked to increase my levothyroxine dose. We agreed...

    Let me know what you think about this- My GP, (actually a nurse practitioner), looked at my free T4, TSH, & antibodies, diagnosed me with hashimoto's and hypothyroidism, put me on Synthroid, and sent me to the endocrinologist. The endocrinologist is just looking at my TSH, doesn't care about...
  8. Thyroid Disease General Discussion Forum
    I was dx with Hashimotos in 2005 or so and had my GINORMOUS thyroid removed in 2007-2008 (cen't remember). I'm also a person with Multiple Sclerosis, so that tends to take focus away from anything else going wrong with me and tends to be the catch-all disease for problems too. Blame MS. Well...

    Hi everyone, I am new here I don't have all of my past numbers here, but a doc once put me on Armour and it almost killed me. First I want to say I am one of those people who if I eat gluten it harms my thyroid, so I am very careful of what I eat that has gluten in it. I saw the chart on the...

    Hello, I had half of my thyroid removed on August 10, 2016 due to a Hurthle Cell Tumor (benign). It was suspicious for cancer but wasn't. I was already almost hypo prior to the surgery. Had my blood done on September 13 and below are my numbers. I am on the low end of T4 and T3 but TSH is...
  13. Thyroid Disease General Discussion Forum
    After over a year of struggling with debilitating symptoms I have finally recently been diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. Hoping this is the cause of all my problems (and not just something else going on at the same time). But unfortunately the doctor I got stuck with is a senile quack whose only...

    My story started this year, after giving up smoking in February with the aid of Champix/Chantix. Among many other symptoms including crazy mood swings and anxiety, my hair was very dry and falling out, I was depressed, very tired and felt the cold more than normal. After being a consistent...
