Discussions that mention synthroid

Multiple Sclerosis board


Thanks Kathy,

Well, I did a few things in my younger years. Not to mention every street drug there ever was...lol...but I was healthy then. I graduated from college in 2001 with complete A's and made the deans list 3 times. I'm 42 yrs old, not 18. I had so much pain all through college, and actually for a very long time. I remember carrying my back pack...I wanted to die some days. I was a high school drop out, and so I'm proud to have gotten my degree later in life. Anyway, I think if it was drug damage, I would be making real stupid decisions. I'm a single mom of a 14 yr old son, and he is what keeps me going. I pay my bills on time, I have a good fella in my life, and I get up and go to work everyday and deal with top professionals in my field,,,,(financial planning, and accounting) I'm so angry at doctors for misdiagnosing me for years. I could write a novel on here for all the misdiagnosis of doctors, and how they have messed up my body...For example, I had my hysterectomy in 2002, the doctor did a vaginal hyst, and cut my bladder, I then had to wear cathedar for 2 months to heal that cut....it was summer, and oh it sucked so bad. I have repeated Urinary Track infections. I have problems with not emptying my bladder. I just trickle when I tinkle...I don't know that I have a urinary infection until my fever hits 101-102...I can't feel my legs, or most of my lower extremities...anyway, Im just sharing some of my woes...I could tell you so much, and I KNOW lots of you are going through the same pain...I had a Scope on my bladder and the doctor that did this Hyst..never told me he used 6 clips on me when doing that surgery,,,,I saw them in the xray...oh thanks for telling me doc...Two years ago I put my coffee maker in my bedroom because some days I just crawl up my stairs. I've been on Flexerill, Lortabs, Neurontin for years for all the scar tissue in my lower back from surgery and my back injury. I deal with the same terrible FATIGUE that you all do, I deal with the burning in my legs, and I have constipation,,,blurry vision, terrible memory, I stutter and can't swallow well....I get terrible ear-aches, and there is no visible infection, just last year, I lost my voice for two months at tax season, (i went to ER for that episode, terrible freeze up of body, just stiff, chest pain, and FATIGUE that I can't even explain) was awful, at the same time it was affecting my kidneys, they were only funtioning at 16, so doctor says...doctor says to me,,,we test you for Hepatits, and he looked at me in the eye,,,and said what is going on with you Donna, then he said "can't figure you out, we send you for blood work and see you later"....he makes me angry...Im like most of you - angry for (Pass the Buck DOCTORS)....arg...Its 4 in the morning, and I woke up at 3 and couldn't go back to sleep...I had to tinkle...wide awake,,,anyway, thanks for sharing my thoughts this morning. I wished I had a street drug today that could fix me up!!! lol..Mushrooms would put a nice laugh in my soul....lol..Thanks for listening to me go off this morning. Off to check my sugar for my Type 1 diabetes, change my pump, and take the synthroid for my Hypo,,I have three goiters on my thyroid, so they say they are goiters...arg..out before I go off again..Thank you all for listening to me wine...Hugs!!!xoxoxoxooxoxoxoxoxo
