In Reply to: Fourth test in a month, elevated levels and physical symptoms-no diagnosis/treatmen. posted by Samantha on July 31, 2000 at 20:43:24:
I have had most of the same symptoms as you. I am 26 yrs and I too am going back to school in the fall. I do have mostly hypo symptoms but my t3 levels are slighly elevated. I did see an endo and he has pretty much brushed me off and said I was hyper. At least you got numbers, I couldn't except the t3. He says that I am fine with the exception that I need to lower my dosage. I had thyroid surgery last year for a second time. I had parathyroid surgery 3mths ago. In between that time I was at the dosage the doctor is recommending me go to. I had massive migranes and was always sick. My endo has pretty much thrown up his hands and said I don't know and let it go. I need to get something done because my heart beats way too fast or too slow. It is always at 130 and when I am laying down and resting for at least a half hour it drops to 40. This causes me to pass out a lot and gives me chest pains when I have to get up from sitting or lying down. I also have a slight heart murmur that was diagnosed last January. Now I don't think it is so slight anymore. I have an extreme intolerance to cold, my hands and feet turn blue. I have debated to go to the ER because of being dismissed so quickly by other doctors that I might get dismissed again. But I've tried to see my primary care as well as my endo about it and I can't seem to get in when the problem is really bad so they know what I am talking about. ER would be the only time to do it and catch it before something really bad happens. I do have a high tolerance to pain, I don't go to the doctor for every sniffle either. My primary knows that very well. I end up in surgery every time I see him about something. He wants to help but doesn't have much of an idea as to where to go from here. One thing I do know. A doctor who will sit and listen and say how can I help you feel better and see you in person with followups is the best kind to have. Finding one however is like winning the lottery. If I can make any headway, I'll let you know. In the meantime I hope you will let me know how your search is going. Be well.
