Good Monring all!

This is so frustrating!
The following are my resutls

Free T4 1.1 (0.7-1.5)

TSH 0.17 (0.35-5.00)

Total T3 1.35 (0.60-1.81)

I talked to the Dr. and they will NOT do anything till I go for a ultrasound for my thyroid. (today)

I am tired, dry eyes, weight gain, (low libido :rolleyes: ) puffy eyes, the list goes on. IF my goiter did not get bigger, then they acutally said they might take me off synthroid!!! YIKES!

Then what happens? I have been off it before and my goiter gets bigger and WOW I feel worse! Major hypo symptoms. Any thoughts????

thank you!
Yes, you are right! I am just frustrated. But, no matter what, I feel the goiter. I ahve gone off the synthroid at times and it has gotten bigger. So, okay....just wait!

Thanks!

I just came back from an Endo...they told me to get off the .025 synthroid. That is does NOTHING FOR GOITERS....in 1999 the goiter was 3.0 now it is 2.50. I am sooooooo confused. I told him that when I was off, I felt it in my throat. He told me that was not possible. What do I do? I felt it. I am miserable. Any thoughts????

***Also, I have another mass at 2.4 c.m and I am having a biopsey next week.

thank you
Goodmorning,

The Dr. told me that the synthroid has NO barring on the goiter. That the .025 that I am taking, if stopped, will not cause me to feel the goiter cme back. I have been on meds since 99. I told him that a few times I have stopped and I have felt it. I want to cry. I am going to Disney (my hubby and 3 kids) and having a graduation party for my daughter (8th grade) and feel like YUK! He took blood work to see if my hormones are out of wack (had hysterectomy and 1 ovary removed) I am out of synthroid in about 2 weeks...what do I do. to find another endo. . .any one around here is about 2 months, that is why I went to this guy. Maybe that was clue #1, that I was able to see him in 1 1/2 weeks!!!!! and the rest of them was about 2 months. This is crazy. I have 1 more cyst and I want to cry!!!!!!!!!!!!! :confused: :confused:
