About Me: Female, Northwest Panhandle, FL, member since Nov 2009
I have been on Synthroid since 1995. I have taken .150 for about 5 years now.) All the women in my family, on both sides, have hypothyroidism. My daughter was diagnosed as hypo when she was 10. Her cousin, on my husband's side, was dx at 11.) In 1996 I was dx wi
[More]th a prolactinoma. With Dostinex (cabergoline), it seems to be gone, but my endo says my prolactin level is still not low enough. (Will deal with this whole other issue after figuring out what is going on with my thyroid!)
In August 2009, I was told that I may have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. Following an ultrasound and FNA in late October, it was confirmed. I have a large goiter on the left side. Endo says my thyroid is about 5-6 times the normal size. FNA inconclusive so I am going to have a TT January 5th. Happy about that but absolutley petrified at the same time!
I just want to be happy again and get back to my "old" normal; my current "normal" stinks!!
