Re: HypoThyroid-Help, someone believe me.
Yes! I believe you, too!
Do not give up searching for a better doctor.
If you care to post a more specific location in Tennessee - perhaps a range of zip codes where you prefer to stay within - I might be able to provide names of patient recommended doctors.
Some people have found their local pharmacists to be helpful by providing names of MDs who prescribe dessicated thyroid drugs or Cytomel. It can't hurt to ask those around your area; talk to the pharmacists directly, not to their counter help. MDs who prescribe these drugs are more thyroid savvy and tend to think outside the box.
Just don't give up. You definitely have hormone levels that are too low for nearly anyone. Let us know how it goes, okay?
