thyroid disorder? What a nightmare

Hi all you fellow "thyroidians". I symathize with you all!
I was originally diagnosed as hyperthyroid with the racing heart, and the extremely high metabolism, etc. Upon the advise of my endocronologist, I went ahead with the iodine ablation treatment, now I have no thyroid gland at all. I went into hypothyroid before long. I then did a pendulum immitation while the doctors regulated my medication. They say that according to my blood work I am now in the "normal" range , but I don't feel normal. I am still cold when everyone else is hot, I find that I have to take a sweater just to go grocery shopping. I also am tired all the time. I have spirts of energy at about 3pm but that doesnt last long. I also noticed in the past 3 months (I have had this over 1 year)that I've also developed bad acne and for over 1 year I have had very little if any sexual interest, which my poor husband has suffered through with me. When I told these things to my doctor, he said there was no way my skin troubles and low labido were related to my thyroid. He blamed it on me taking depo provera. I've been on depo for over 2 1/2 years and never had these problems. I've also gained 10 lbs which is a lot for me due to my small frame. Lastly it seems that it takes me a lot longer to recover from a physical strain or excessive workout, like all day lawn work, or heavy duty cleaning, etc. I really appreciate your comments and input if anyone can relate or tell me if they've felt similar since developing a thyroid disorder. If so, now what? What do we do when they say our blood work is "normal"? I noticed even my cholesterol went up. I never eat junk, or any kind of fast food or fried foods, no butter, etc, etc. Thanks so much.

Re: thyroid disorder? What a nightmare

Welcome yvette,
What I did was change doctors and even medical groups until I got action.
You need a doctor that treats according to symptoms.
They ARE out there.

Did you read our stories?<p>[This message has been edited by Tree Frog (edited 11-14-2001).]
