Re: Changed To Synthroid

I just hate that waiting game I am so fed up with waiting and hoping to feel better but what can I do, I have no choice.
I just want my life back I want to go shopping and have lunch with my friends I just want to feel NOT TIRED AND WEIRD anymore.
I also have to go to the hairdresser I used to like going now it is work for me to get my hair done.
Oh well enough crying , nothing I can do but WAIT AND SEE,

hope you are feeling a little better after your hair appointment at least you will look nice.


take care

Hi,

Oh, boy you couldn't have said it all better than what is going on in my mind all the time. I did get my hair done and felt really awful when I went, but just being there, by the time I left I felt a bit better mentally anyway. Then I went into the grocery store for one item and to mail bills. I almost didn't want to come home just because I felt semi-normal - but not really. I want to do all those things you mentioned and can't - just like you. I am tired of waiting and waiting too - and then you go and it is more waiting. I am so glad I have you to talk to or I would think I was ready to be locked up!!!

I have that crazy burning in my abdomen and stomach at times and back - and sometimes feel like that uti thing - burning - but not having to go all the time - that is weird too - and has to be from this - because I never had it before. I try to ignore it and say it is from this......good grief!!!!!

Anyway, today is the 6th anniversary of my Mom's death and that is another reason I wanted to go out - just to keep my mind on something else - don't need to go any lower.......

Anyway- we will hang in there together. Do you still feel weird? How do you feel exactly?

Later,
Liz

Re: Changed To Synthroid

I also have that weird burning in my stomach and I feel like I am getting a UTI.
I feel like I have thousands of ants crawling around in my inside.
I am very tired and my legs and arms feel weak. My eyes are also very dry and red, my legs tingle.
I don't want to go out feeling like this so another boaring day at home.
I am sooo tired of this , will it ever get better ?

Sorry about your Mom, my mom died 7 years ago.

Re: Changed To Synthroid

Hi,

Wow - we have so many of the same things. I just read a post about itching and rashes - seems that is common with Hashi's hypo too. Remember, I had that rash for about a week a while back? Sometimes I get itchy here and there too and this burning and uti feeling is weird. I don't have to go a lot - just have burning. I figure it has to all be related. Several people talked about the itching and rashes on the latest post.

Hey - I wondered if it was on this board or the other - but someone recommended a book called The Thyroid Solution by Ridha Arem, M. D. and I ordered it the other day - it arrived today and seems pretty interesting for sure. I just started reading it....but so much rings true already. Anyway, I don't know if you have it -but might be worth it - I think it was only about $11.00 or such - I love them because I order on-line and it arrives like in two days. Talks about so many symptoms we seem to have that people are sent to other doctors for and they are all hypo or hyper related. I think it is worth reading.

Today wasn't the worst day I have had although it started out bad. I have taken the zinc and selenium for three days now - don't know if that would do anything??? The latest post says selenium for rashes and itching - interesting. But I still have itching - maybe that will kick in.

That's about it for tonight I guess.....have to pray for a better day tomorrow.

Talk tomorrow,
Liz

Hi,

Yesterday afternoon, as I told you, and last evening - not too bad - when you are comparing anything to awful - anything feels better - right? This morning - kinda yucky - but maybe a tad better. Trying to fight it as much as possible and not let myself get so down - although that is hard. I am trying to do a few little things to keep my mind occupied. I am continuing the selenium and zinc and see what happens with that - supposed to help with conversion of T4 to T3 - I have read that in more than one place now. The mornings are always worse as we have discussed many times. I guess we are both still playing the waiting game. As I look at the calendar I see that I have about two weeks to blood work and a little longer for doctor's appointment. I am going to work on my log of symptoms and how I have felt since I saw him and not just say awful.......I like to take notes with me. Also going to call before I go for blood and have that woman I talk to ask the doctor about the free T3/T4 tests....so, trying to keep upbeat. Usually afternoons and evenings a bit better. Let's keep praying.

Talk later,
Liz

Hi,

I was going to add that my mind is so far ahead of my body. If I feel even one hair better - I am thinking - oh, maybe I will do this or that or maybe next week I will do such and such. Then I walk around for a few minutes and I am trying to fight the feelings - and then I really don't know what I will do or if I will be able to.

When this all started - I said to my husband "I wonder what lesson God wants me to learn from this experience".......patience, I guess that is it. My husband always said I didn't have any - well, this forces you to have it because you have no choice....at all.

I know that nothing else matters, if you don't feel well. I thought I knew that but I really KNOW that now - perhaps that is the lesson??? Hmmmmm....
and patience. Think you and I have both GOT IT by now. Time for this to end.

Later,
Liz

Pia,

Let's hope and pray. I don't feel good, like you, and this morning I was kinda lightheaded but kept trying to fight it - went for a walk. Trying to wrap a Mother's day gift for my Mother-in-law so we can mail it this week. Listening to some CD's that I love - crying while doing it - but still enjoying it.
Maybe thinking more positive is the better way if we can. Only if we don't feel awful is that possible, I think.....we will see. I was afraid to go to bed last night as I didn't feel too awful - the mornings are always kinda bad or really bad - I can't figure that out. I am still splitting my pill - I don't know what that does - but don't care....it doesn't hurt as long as I get .88 in the 24 hours and on an empty stomach.

Let me know how you are as the day goes by. What are you doing today?
It is really warm here today - 80's - I am sure it is that warm there most of the time???

Later,
Liz

Re: Changed To Synthroid

Hi,

Hey - I just got the quick reply back - didn't even realize it. Must have been something wrong with it. Good. Anyway, it is strange that I know I don't feel good, but because I feel one hair better, I think I feel good. Weird - I am sure you know what I mean. The difference between the worst and a not-good, but not the worst day. I am not sure if it medicine is kicking in, or because I am taking it half and half or the zinc and selenium is helping. But I don't care. I am taking one day at a time and see how I feel. I guess that is what we do anyway - right?

Enjoy the pool - at least it is healthy and relaxing.......

Later,
Liz

Re: Changed To Synthroid

Good morning,

Hope you are feeling better today. I still feel about the same as the improvement that started Friday afternoon. Mornings are still not at all great. Same yesterday - but trying to fight it. I am still taking the half tablet - I guess one of these days I will try the whole thing again in the morning and then see if I feel bad all day - hate to though. I read another post on another board yesterday from a Liz94? I think - she is the same - but she feels great in the morning - takes Synthroid at 6:30 A. M. - in a couple of hours feels awful all day until about 7:00 p. m. and then feels great. She is seeing her doctor tomorrow and is going to let me know what he says. I don't think splitting the tablet is hurting me as long as I take it on an empty stomach - do you? I know sometimes doctors recommend it - although it is inconvenient if you actually "have a life" - which I don't.

That's about it - I keep praying each day will be better for both of us.

Later,
Liz

Hi Pia,

My quick reply is gone again - hmmm.. Oh, well. I know what you mean bout the burning stomach and tingling - I have burning too. Not too bad today - but some. I have no idea - the symptoms are so weird. Last night my hands were itching.....go figure do you have that too?

I have been sitting on the deck for three yours with CD player and listing to music - trying to feel normal. Ok while I am doing that as I am not moving -

What is your status - do you call the doctor if things don't change in a couple weeks or what. Is next blood work a month or how long?

Later,
Liz
