: Advice appreciated!! Have been on Levothroid for 7 years. Started out at dosage 75mcg now on 137mcg (how high is 137mcg anyway? Is that in the average range?). Had blood test done 2 weeks ago, (follow up on new dosage), and tests were in the normal range. HOWEVER, for months and months I have been lethargic, sleep whenever I can, lack of concentration, cold skin, dry hair, no energy, brain fog as someone mentioned!! ..and with 2 kids under 4 ..thats not easy. I am 27. If my blood work and doctor say it is ok ...is it still possible my thyroid is not? Are there other tests that should be done? What would be the next step? Im calling the doctor tomorrow to talk to her, and what questions should I ask?

: My blood test were fine and my thyroid is so enlarged that it is pushing my traechea around in my throat..ouch! Anyhow, don't let your Doctor puch you around. Tell him or her that you want a sonagram done of your throid to see if it is enlarged. That is how they found out about mine. If that comes up negative then ask for a iodine test that tests the activity of your thyroid. The point is, you shouldn't have to tell your doctor what to do. just b/c the blood work came back negative doesn't mean your fine and fixed so go home. The doctor should be telling you what he is thinking and what tests you need to get taken. If you feel like you doctor is slacking then get rid of him or her like yesterday's trash and find one that wont make you
feel like you're making all of this up. You don't have to be mean, but you do have to make your expectaions clear! Let me know how things go and I wish you lots of luck. To me, it sounds like thyroid problems. Maybe you can check into hyperglycemia also. (low blood sugar) Bye Dawn :)
