I Feel like I'm dying!!

[SIZE=7][B]I Feel like I'm dying!!!

I posted a couple of days ago about starting on meds again. I just started on them last week but before that, I have felt so bad that I wonder if I'm slowly dying. I've had a terribly stiff neck, lump in my throat, ears hurt, achy body, headaches, acid reflux....the list goes on and on. Could all of this be from hypo? I've felt bad before but NEVER like this. I go to the doc tomorrow. They did find a small nodule last August. These are my levels:

T3 2.9
Free T4 .70
TSH 4.74

Help!

Re: I Feel like I'm dying!!

When I first got sick, even though my levels were always "normal", I felt like I was dying too. It was especially difficult because I had to fuss and fight to get a diagnosis.
About six weeks after treatment with meds I felt better, still a little ookie but not dead on my feet. Then when I had my thyroid removed I felt much better.
Then I had my widsom teeth out, then a year later had an ovarian tumor removed. I had terrible IBS symptoms with that.
Most of us have been where you are. You are not alone.
Here's to better days!

Re: I Feel like I'm dying!!

Thank you so much for asking Irys!! It actually went well. It was with my family doc who is an internist. He listened very carefully to me and how I was feeling and is very interested in my T4 levels. My blood pressure has been very high so he is treating me for that as well. I am also having a scan on my neck and thyroid on thursday. I feel like he is genuinely interested in helping me which is more than even my endo was willing to do!
I hate it that others are suffering too, but glad to know someone understands. Thanks.
