Absolutely you can feel bad after a week off thyroid. It will only get worse if you are hypo and need to be on it. Why are they refusing your RX?

Long story short, they say my labs are normal (TSH ranges 1.70 to 2.20 and Free T4 ranges .9 to 1.2). SO, I have a lapband that I self pay for care and that doctor disagreed with Kaiser and put me on it back in April. I waited for the last minute to refill and he is on vacation I thought I would try to get Kaiser to refill it based on my labs improved and I feel better on it .. but nope

Well, I am self-paying for a out of Kaiser doctor. Spoke to the nurse today and told her my story. She thinks Kaiser is horrible horrible insurance and thinks my doctor is way off base. She actually thinks once they do the work up on me, the dose I was taking was too low and I will feel even better on a higher dose!! I am very excited to get some real health care
