Finally finished all tests!

Well I went to a new endro Dr who ordered blood work 8am & 4PM, a thyroid scan since last yr I showed a nodule on thyroid & today an iodine intake that I did for 3 days. The nurse called about my blood work sd the TSH was 4.89 which isn't too bad but the Dr wants me on levothyroxine 50mg but cut in half for now & have blood work redone in 4-6 wks again. It's been a long long fight to find out whats wrong with me I'm in my 2nd yr of feeling crappy.

Re: Finally finished all tests!

Congratulations on finally getting the diagnosis! If you're like many of us, you certainly don't relish having a chronic disease... But isn't there a big sense of accomplishment in finally getting it treated after suffering so long?

You're right, I was beginning to think maybe I am just mental or getting old!

Re: Finally finished all tests!

I'm so glad to hear that after all the testing and waiting that you have a diagnosis. Not that we want to have something wrong with us...but what a relief to now have medication and be able to start on your road to feeling better!!

Take care...
