Hey guys thanks so much for your support and sorry for taking so long to write back, but I have been feeling so so sick and been to the Er 2x this week, well last time i went they told me I had bronchitis since my chest and lungs hurt so bad.
anyway YES Kant this is a constant battle because everyday I feel different one day I could be fine then the next I am sick as a dog, I dont knwo why doctors do this to us, they should get put in jail for commiting the crime of giving us RAi , I never ever had this kind of on going sickness in my life, so sad because I never ever have energy and cannot do much with my kids or for myself, never knew I could feel so useless in my life.
anyway now that I am feeling better from the bronchitis, I cannot get my thyroid condition straightened out, first I have a doc that has no idea what he is doing he doesnt know much about thyroid issues so what I do is make up a list from reading this board, and take it to him and then I also ask him about tests I should have done etc.. by the way I am on 125mcg of synthroid only, when I take 150mcg I get severe chest pain.
anyway at this point I am worrying so so much because i dont know what is wrong with me, my tsh shows to be in the upper 4 range and that is considered normal but I feel sick, It seems to me that when my tsh is in the .18 range that I feel 100x better than I do now, I mean I have been getting these episodes that scare me to death and my blood pressure has been low and I have gotten a bunch of palpitations here is how they start I get one after another
1- heaviness in chest
2-get palpitations -pulse gets about 106
3- Blood prssure drops to 80/50
6-severe neck pain
7-numbness and tingling around top of head and neck,face
8-passing out feeling and dizzy
9- chest feels very uncomfortable
10- Body feels very weak and tired and it shows in my eyes
I get about 2 or 3 episodes a day and they las for about 3 hours, they usually start right after I eat, very scary to say the least and the worst thing is that my doc is focusing on my heart, and I am scared that I might have a heart condition, even though I have had about 10 ekg's this year and 1 nuclear stress test all normal,
he wants me to get another one next week, but I dont knwo if I shoudl even focus on the heart issue, I am thinking its either adrenal fatigue or just the hypothyroid being out if control, I dont even know what to think or do, I was thinking of getting a saliva test to check my female hormones, I am also thinking that it might be the nodules making me sick? goodness I am so thankful for you all, I am not sure what I would do without you since its been so hard for me to find a good doc, anyway I will try calling a top doc for the list tomorrow and pray that this one will know whats worng with me, cause this has me terrible ill.
by the way i had some blodowork done on friday that my doc should have already, he testes the Free t 3 and free t4 too,I will call tomorrow and will post them here thans again you guys great!
by the way Zekat thanks for sharing your story, so glad your feeling better,
what are your levels that you are on 200 mcg, I am thinking about cytomel maybe I need some, I wish I could take xanax since god knows I need some, but my Blood pressure is low and xanax can lower it even more, I have some 0.5 mg pills and so tempted to take them but afraid of it lowering my BP even more.
