Hi Tree Frog,
I have scheduled an appointment with a NEW internal med doc and lucked up with a cancellation for tomorrow! He is not involved with their clique. I am unable to get an appointment with an endo without a referral, so for now I will have to keep my appt. in 6 weeks with the one my old doc gave me. I feel like I will be somewhat 'black balled' before I even get there though. Who knows? I am hoping to get results tomorrow. Feel horrible today, I noticed when I tried to go off my synthroid for 3 days I felt a little better. Day 4 felt bad and took 1/2. The next three days on a half I felt a little better. Now, day two on a whole tab again, I am good for nothing. Horrible headaches, swelling, heart racing, etc. Even the veins on both sides of my neck are swollen and throbbing. I am soo tired of this misery. I know in my heart that the nodules have a major play in this. It's like a repeat (only worse) of round two thyroid surgery in '87. Didn't mean to yak your ear off! Thanks for being there,

: Hi Teresa,
: You are entitled to a second opinion outside the medical group! I definitely think it is worth it.
: You can complain to the HMO group also. I have gotten results this way.

: Also, you can insist on a TRH test. When we are trying to get health care within the insurance business, we have to use their recognized and used tests as much as possible...the TRH reveals any underlying can then request to TRY some thyroid med for 3 months to see if it helps...get The Thyroid Solution, and learn which supplements help the body convert T4 into T3, also, and avoid the foods that suppress or interfere with thyroid production and use. You can learn a lot in that book how to help yourself.
: Research, research, research and learn all you can. Blessings! Pray, it helps! TF
