    Re: Need help analyzing blood work results...

    Hello. I just wanted to share that my thyroid levels were "within range" and I had all the symtoms of Thryoid disease and a family history (my mother had it) and my idiot doctor wouldn't treat me for it UNTIL she felt nodules on my thyroid. I then had to see a surgeon and a endocrinologist which took months of not feeling well. The the endo put me on Synthroid to stop the nodule growth and I IMMEDIATELY felt better. Sometimes you just have to trust your instinct and find another doctor no matter what a pia it is.

    Thank you for sharing! My grandmother has thyroid problems and takes medication for it and my mother is anemic and has never been tested for anything thyroid related. I went to a different doctor to get a second opinion and when I showed her photos of the changes my body has been going through she immediately sent me for a sonogram to a local hospital and from the start she suspects its something hormonal. I had a sonogram done last week and they found nothing abnormal. But unlike my other doctors this lady doctor truly wants to help me so she gave me a referral to go to a good endo hospital in Manhattan. I just have to now find time to make and go to the appointment.... so I will be stuck feeling like this for even longer period of time...

    I am wondering if anyone that is hypothyroid or has hashimotos ever experience intense drowsiness in the afternoons? That is one of my more severe symptoms. No matter how much sleep I get, a wave of sleepiness always hits me around 3:30pm-6:30pm as if I took sleeping pills. No amount of exercise or food can break the spell. I am forced to keep my eyes open and act like I'm drunk or take a nap which usually takes away another 2-3hours of my day....
