Saw my doctor today and had to confess I was taking twice the Armour he prescribed. He was cool. He said, "Okay you probably have read up on this more than I have by now, so what do you want me to do?" He's doing the FT3,FT4 and tsh. I don't think I've every had a FT3. He's going to send me out for adrenal testing(he's an MD). Knows I'm going to take care of my ill parents and gave me Valium. I love my doctor. He will call me with results on Friday and he had me give him the optimal #'s for those 3 tests. First dr. in 6+ years that has been agreeable to working with me. Everyday I'm more convinced that I'm going to live. LOL IWL
I finally found a doctor after years like that too- WHAT a relief, I literally jumped out of my chair and waved my hands around excitedly when he agreed to let me try cytomel. I think he got scared when I did that. Oh well, I got my way and it is working wonderfully! Cheers to all the professionals that listen and believe us!!! http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/hammer.gif (pretend the hammer is actually a beer)
I am glad you are happy with your doctor! So, he did give you Valium? When are you leaving to take care of your parents? I am sure that is a very stressful situation for you. It is hard to see your parents getting older and especially if they are really sick. My prayers are with you.
Thanks Bellajoon, I'm here now. My dad who was in ICU is home and seems a little better. My mom has pneumonia(my diagnosis) and won't go to the dr. til she's strong enough to take a shower. AUGH!!! Yes it was my hypo doc who gave me valium. I don't usually take stuff like that, but I'm gonna tonight!!! I wanna go home. Waugh. LOL IWL
