New here, question

Hello, I am new here. I have been going through the craziness of many symptoms for many years.
My OB was concerned at my last appointment that my symptoms might be related. So started the search for a cause. I recently found a Dr. who is trying to help me sort things out.
So far we have ruled out Lupus, and arthritis.
We are working on thyroid, allergies and FM now.
My question is have any of you who have hypo. had a normal T3? The Dr. I am now seeing Dr.B thinks that even though my T3 was normal on the last test that I should have the rest of the thyroid profile run. Something the other Dr.A didn't think was necessary. Dr.A didn't seem too concerned period. He mailed me my test results with a seven-word note.
I had the other blood work done today.
I just wondered if anyone’s T3 was normal and they were still hypo?
Also, I had a thyroid test done when I was in high school. They thought I had mono but didn't. It was low and for a couple of years they had me on thyroid medication. I am not sure why I stopped taking it. (I was a teenager). But I have never had a low test since then. At least not T3. I wondered how old you all were when this started.
Thanks a million,
Kathy

Hi and welcome, RedeemedHeart!
Try starting here:

Let's tell Our Stories <A HREF="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/Forum118/HTML/000045.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/Forum118/HTML/000045.html</A>

Information Archive <A HREF="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/Forum118/HTML/000005.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/Forum118/HTML/000005.html</A>

Any of the tests may be within the normal lab ranges and we still may need treatment. It always takes a doctor willing to listen to symptoms. Treatment is always on trial basis for any hormone...we are all too different. And many things can throw the thyroid hormone balance off, at any age.

FM is not a true DX. It is a symptom. It merely means tissue (fibro) pain (myalgia). Please don't let any doctor tell you it is a disease, it isn't. Insist on finding out what is causing the symptoms. The symptoms may get progressively worse until the cause is found and you get proper treatment.

Please see the checklist on the Information Archive topic, and get back to us about your symptoms.
