Unhappy thyroid

hi everybody,
I just don't believe this,I am a bit under the weather,my throat became sore,and I felt like I had a lump in my throat when I swallowed....you know,like when you take a tablet and It feel's like It's stuck.My neck was sore at either side.So off I go to the quack...er sorry doc.I haven't seen this doc before,and he asked If I have had a blood test,I said no,he was surprised,I didn't have one regularly seeing as I take AED's.I told him my neuro said I didn't need regular test's because I take lamotrigine(I don't know why lamotrigine Is different,maybe someone can enlighten me).He gave me some antibiotics and I have just finished taking them.Anyway I had the test last wednesday,and before I could ring for the results two day's later,a letter came from the surgery.Now I alway's panic when I get letter's that say private and confidential,so I completely ripped open the envelope to read It and get It over with.It say's I must have another blood test,to confirm a diagnosis of underactive thyroid,and he want's to see me about my having to take thyroxin.I read up about It and this could explain my hair thinning and my skin being dry and probably other thing's with my behaviour.So I was wondering If anyone else has had thyroid trouble.I'll tell you what!,If anything else goes wrong with my body,I'll be deader than those flairs with the pocket's In the knee's.lol.
