good luck 2 ya! i know T roid problems are rough. ive got 1 too, but the drs cant detect it.


hi andrea

keep at it, as it took me two years and going private to get it detected. still have probs with my doctor -its an on going fight. i was borderline, felt like poo, lost hair, gained 4 stone (56 pounds) in 2 years my periods were horrendously long and heavy, etc. one month after i ordered them to put me on the lowest dose of thyroxine i felt so much better and even started to lose some weight. have you looked at any pages on the net about it? i think theres a few that list good endo docs that listen..

good luck hun

lou
