Re: Thyroid problem?

Oh boy....that say that to EVERYONE with thyroid issues it seems,but mostly to women. Then they throw us a prescrip for anti anxiety meds or anti depressants and send us on our way. This is typical! if your levels are at the bottom, that means they are too low for you. Like one veteran member on here says, that's like saying everyone takes a size 6-11 shoe and everyone could fit in ANY of those sizes cause it's in the range of normal shoe size!! It seems your tsh does jump around by your readings here of other tests. All you can do is try to stress your symptoms are that of a thyroid issue and maybe the doc could try you on a trial of replacement. The tsh is not what to go by in thyroid disease. You do NEED the frees done. That's what is circulating in your blood stream and what your body can utilize. Dumb docs!!
