Re: PCOS then... NOT PCOS... :( confused and depressed

Why would it ever happen? My GP basically called me a hypochondriac and my RE wanted to keep me on the starting dose of synthroid (which made me MORE hypothyroid) but I found a good doctor and now I am being treated. Don't give up! You are a young girl. Your hormones are a little out of whack but getting them in order will help you feel better, healthier, more positive, and hopefully soon give you a baby!
I really suggest going to a private doctor, if your GP doesn't take you seriously. But it doesn't hurt to ask!

Re: PCOS then... NOT PCOS... :( confused and depressed

i just cannot see an upside right now, i went to the doctors over a sore inflamed mole (doctor diddnt like the look of it said it wasent normal) the other day only to find out i needed to see yet another specialist, went to see them 3 days later for them to say that it wasent normal and needs to be removed its on my face im going to end up with a scar on the right side of my face ( things i hope can only get better) ... there not sure if its cancerus but there removing it on the 28th...so this on top is just making me think what is the point it just one thing after another.... sorry i was a bit... off i guess it just was not a very good day im pretty worried about things at the moment and dont no anyone else who has been in the same position as i am with all 4 specialists over different things.. i just wish i had some good news for a change.... as for the doctor not taking me seriously he is a new doctor iv just changed to because my other diddnt take me seriously. he seems a good doctor. gettin done what needs to be done. i does it sound as tho its just a hormone problem? and is that quiet easy to sort out? xxoo

Re: PCOS then... NOT PCOS... :( confused and depressed

Hi Jay,
I am going to try this a third time. The last two times I responded here, my text was lost after submitting. I am going to copy before submitting this time ;-)

I am very sorry about the scary mole issue. I have also had a few moles removed because they looked suspicious and also had some atypical cells but they never turned out to be cancer. It's the "blessing" of having pasty, Anglo-Saxon skin, I'm afraid. Most moles are not melanomas, even if they are cancerous, so the odds are in your favour. Still scary, I know.

Ugh, I can't believe I am writing this stuff all over again! sorry if it sounds rushed.

I think you should enjoy your twenties rather than being obsessed with getting pregnant right now. Take a lovely holiday with your partner. Don't waste your 20's wishing for something. It's not going to make it happen any faster. I wasted a lot of my 20's obsessing with why I wasn't getting pregnant. I wish I had taken a nice holiday to Italy with my husband. Once you have a baby, you will not be able to go anywhere for YEARS and if you do, you will feel guilty about spending money, believe me!

I think you should take this time to get healthy and figure out what is going on with your body. Do the BBT charting because I think that helps familiarise you with what your hormones are doing, and whether and when you are ovulating so that you are not wasting those ovulation sticks.

And I really think the most important thing right now is for you to find a good doctor who will help you optimise your thyroid levels because those levels are definitely indicative of hypothyroidism. I also have a lot of helpful links and articles I can send you that you can show your doctor but I cannot post them here.

Please keep me updated on how your doctor appt. goes.
XXX

Re: PCOS then... NOT PCOS... :( confused and depressed

we just want to no whats matter thats all. and i no children are expensive we have thort long about this and we are ready for it to happen we do see it as when it happens it happens but there is something wrong and we want to get it sorted out because of what has happened now where using contraception it wouldn't be responsible for us to want to bring another life in to the world with all the things happening with me right now. we will continue to try and find out what the problem is but where not wanting to put 2 much thort into it at the moment untill we no what this " thing" is if anything. maybe we will think about it after we find out what we need to etc but im not sure if it is all related because of a post u posted easier about sore joints etc there pretty much how im feeling so i think im going to try speak to my doctor about it i will keep u updated but its a wait to get in to my doctors lol there busy alot of the time xoxo

Re: PCOS then... NOT PCOS... :( confused and depressed

Jay- are you anywhere near Birmingham/London/Sway/Scotland?

I have heard really good things about Dr Gordon Skinner for thyroid care. You should look into him. He treats symptoms and doesn't just base your treatment on bloodwork, though your bloodwork probably will show hypothyroidism.

Re: PCOS then... NOT PCOS... :( confused and depressed

Well, you haven't had all of the bloodwork, so I couldn't really speculate about what is going on with you. But since your TSH is high, I would imagine you would need levothyroxine. That is a synthetic T4 medication. However, some people also need a T3 medication because their body's don't convert T4 to T3 as they should. So, those people would either take a T3 hormone (called Cytomel) in addition to a T4 hormone (like synthroid) or they could take natural desiccated pork thyroid, which has both T4 and T3 in it. I am taking desiccated thyroid because I have very low levels of Free T3.

I don't know what you consider to be a lot of money for a doctor's appointment. I don't think you can really put a price on your health, especially if you are having no luck with the "free" doctor. I have started going to a doctor who charges $450 (290 pounds) for a 45 minute appointment, and it isn't covered by health insurance. It's what I had to do to get a competent doctor. You may have to do the same.

At least call around and find out about costs. It may be more reasonable than you anticipate.
