Hey, I appreciate you both!
She was actually diagnosed with this nodule of the parathryoid gland 5 years ago. The thing is she is real "flakey". I mean a good person but a real free spirit of sorts and doesn't do meds. She had been very sick and goes to this herbalogist <sp>?
She did get a biopsy of this ( I am not sure how ) and it was benign but she never followed up. She has ALL the same symptoms I do and I have hashi's and 2 nodules, only I am going to several real dr's. In fact I am having a TT on Tuesday due to these nodules and the hashi's even though my thyroid functions normally.
I appreciate all of your advice I had not seen the topic here. I will look up the parathyroid website you mention. I know she won't listen but at least I will know.
I can't either figure out why someone disregards their health over a view of meds that is misguided. She is flakey all around so it fits in!
God love her! She is only 51 and I hate to see her so sick! Now that she sees me not only taking thyroid meds but taking the action of getting this thing out of me which I fought tooth and nail for to get into specialists in town, she is starting to look at things like maybe she is being stupid with her health.
I will keep encouraging her but first I must get myself together
