How is everyone feeling today?

Me? Pretty terrible. Temp this morning was 94.1. I fell asleep at a stop light on the way to work today too. So far this 60mg (Armour) isn't doing jack for me - but it's only been 2 days since I've upped my dose. Hopefully this doesn't continue.. I'm running out of sick time at work.

Re: How is everyone feeling today?

Oh my, it seems as though you are getting worse. I have an idea for you. Go to the ER and tell them how bad you feel.

Usually they give your doctor a call about your health. Then your doc would be a little worried about getting in trouble over not treating you properly.

This may be a bad idea, but I think it would "get the ball rolling".

Re: How is everyone feeling today?

Lady50 - it DOES seem like I'm getting worse. My boyfriend says he thinks I'm almost more symptomatic than before. I think he's right. Maybe Armour isn't right for me - or maybe I've just been on too low of a dose for too long.

I'm not sure about going to the ER - I hesitate because I know how doctors are with thyroid problems. I'm more upset that my coworkers/boss don't understand that I'm really completley out of it today. It's 85* outside and I have a hoody sweatshirt on over my t-shirt, jeans, and a blanket draped around me. You think they'd get a clue.

pixiek - I'm ready to take mine out too. ugh. If it only helped!

Re: How is everyone feeling today?

I think if I'm still feeling poorly tomorrow I'll give the doc a call and play stupid for a little bit, and ask how quickly I should start to feel a difference from the increased meds. Tuesday I was feeling ok. that was day 1 of the increase.. tomorrow I might be ok too...

this back and forth bull **** is what makes me crazy.

Re: How is everyone feeling today?

irys,
Oh can I understand the cold issue! I wear the same get ups myself and everyone looks at me like I am crazy. Last week at hubby's softball game it was in the upper 80's and I had on a hoody jacket and everyone on the bleachers was asking me if I was crazy! NO, I am not crazy, I am SICK!!!!!!!

I feel like you, just rip the dang thing out!

I am feeling good symptom wise today, but I have the achy feeling in my thyroid/nodule area. I hate that too.

Karen

Re: How is everyone feeling today?

One of the girls I work closely with in my office is newly pregnant. Everyone totally caters to her "oh how are you feeling today! Do you need to go home and get some extra sleep?" Now, don't get me wrong - she absolutley has the right not to feel well, etc. But as I sit next to her completley huddled up in blankets with my head in my hands on a daily basis.. *sigh* it's amazingly frustrating.


I'm sitting here in tears (at work mind you, my coworkers must think I'm nuts) because this just sucks. I just don't have it in me to sit here and work anymore. I can't take much more time off work without fearing losing my job. I can't cut back my hours because I'm barely making it financially as it is.

something has to give here.

Re: How is everyone feeling today?

Irys,
I understand your frustration and personally I could not hold down a job right now if I had to so I understand that issue as well.

Hang in there..............

Re: How is everyone feeling today?

I'm tryin.

I just put a call in to my doc to ask how quickly I can see results from the increase. I'll play dumb for a little while just so she's aware that I feel like I've been hit by a bus.

Re: How is everyone feeling today?

I actually feel pretty good. My hair is still falling out but I am not as tired anymore. Its still rough getting up in the morning, but I can't complain really. I am on 125 mcg of levoxyl and my doc wrote to tell me I need an increase. Which I won't mind. My tsh is 3.8 at this point. I didn't ask for my t4, I figured I am hypo but it doesn't matter at this point since my doc said I still need more meds.

I hope everyone feels better soon- hang in there.

April
