welcome to the board hun,
you are feeling pretty much the same as we all do when we first find this site, you are amongst people who know exactly how you are feeling.
the best place to start is the info pages at the top of the board. These have been written by people who have alot of knowledge and experience with thyroid disorders. i know for sure that they have helped me get well again.
keep posting with your questions and/or your blood test results and we will help as much as we can.
good luck with your appt, let us know how you get on
Thank you ,daisy i will read up more,and try to figure out this?it seems like my body is falling apart,in just a week or so i ve had alot going on ,i m not sure if its assoated with the thyroids or just alot of small things adding up lol like age,my deppresion ,menpause,blatter control,such as dismoring i got up my chest hurts as i breath in, and left arm hurts i'm sure my live in bf is tired of hearing me about all my hurts and worries,how can i expect him to understand ,if i don't lol.but i didnt get on to complain got on for knowledge see if perhaps i could help someone may your day be a good one and again Ty Judy
hiya judy, alot of your symptoms are very similar to what most of us get until our meds get sorted out. You are not alone, get your b/f to read the posts on here it may help him understand what you are going through.
just over 1 yr ago I thought I was never gonna feel well agin, well here I am and doing just fine. when you get your thyroid meds, remember they dont work like aspirin does for a head ache. it can take a few months before you to begin to see an improvement.
I feel certain that one day in the near future you will be helping others
you are such sweet person,ty i have felt as if i m going crazy i never pin pointed what was causing my problems sense it seem like i had so many,i ve had a depression problem most of my life but it got worse when i lost my husben in a car accident so i figured my depression was the reason for being so tired plus menopause , along with my weight gain i figured it was cause of being so tired and not wanting to do nothing?then there s my shoulder acks dr found nothing in my ex rays but i still could not understand why it hurts so bad for all i do is sat ALOT and laydown ,this is inbareresting but i have just started to have poor control of my bladder and there is numbness in my legs and feet as if there frost bit and starting to get the feeling back i cant wait to go aug 25 to the thyroid specialist but then to i see all the people on here were the dr just didnt help? plz let me know if these systems are from my thyroids or what? ty hugs back to you Judy
Hiya judy, I cant really say if the numbness and tingling in your legs is hypoT symptoms or not, most of us share many similar symptoms but others are very individual to us. I had more psychiatric problems than physical ones mainly confusion similar to dementia and others have mainly physical ones.
write everything down before you go to the specialist, especially about the depression, tingling numbness and bladder control. I feel these need through investigations before they can be attributed to your thyroid.
Are you taking thyroid medication at the moment?
good evening,thank you for your reply , as far as have i been to a Dr yet about my thyroids not yet ,last year around this time a Dr did a thyroid test he said if i came back as he said "bad" then i would have to go to a specialist i moved away and didnt go then in the past 4 months i got another doctor were i moved to this doctor tested me again she found my thyroid came back all she said was you need to go to a thyroid specialist she made an appointment at a specialist but it was 4 months away,so i wait and wait now the dr appointment is only 2 Weeks's 25 of august,the main reason i m worried is because of how tired i am ALL DAY and my shoulders and back ac king all the time,here i go again i m sorry,,,,,,all you ask was have i been to a Dr yet and i make a page out it,,,but no Hun i haven't been to the thyroid specialist yet i go Aug 25 for my first time? i have no ideal what they will do? kinda worried? Ty have a good evening Hun Judy
judy lovey this is the place to get it all off your chest, we have all been down the scary road you are now going and some of us are still walking it and still getting scared. we know how it feels for you right now and this is what this board is all about. we care and share on here.
The fatigue you are feeling is very common with thyroid disorders whether you are hypoT or hyperT. When you go to see the specialist he will order some tests. here in the Uk we get a thyroid function test and an ultrasound scan but it does seem to differ in other parts of the world. You will know more once you have had your tests and then you will know what questions you need to ask us. I know its easy for me to say but try not to worry too much we are here for you
thinking of you xx
