[QUOTE=shellshocked]Was 58 your TSH level? What were your symptoms? Are they different from what what your symptoms were before? How long ago did your doctor tell you your levels were "normal".
What medicine and dose did he prescribe?
I'd get a copy of your lab work and post them here. There are people who can help you understand what might be going on.
I'll do that, I believe my docs will be in their office tomorrow. I didn't see the paperworks, the doctor just told me that when she ran my bloodwork for thyroid function, she said it basically was not functioning, and it was at a level of 58. I had 2 babies a year apart (the youngest will be 1 at the end of the month) and since then, my periods have been crazy or non-existant, I've felt sick, depressed, exhausted to the point I couldn't walk down the hall without major motivation, lots and lots of hair falling out, my hands feeling numb (not even sure if that was related), and I'm sure I'm missing something!
Thing is, though, she ran my blood function a few weeks ago, which is a few months after I'd been on the meds, and my levels have dropped to just below normal.
I am lost with this thyroid stuff, to be honest.
I'll get a copy of the paperwork though!
Thanks! I appreciate the help!
