How do you convince your dr. that your thyroids are causing problems with out changing dr's or hospitals? I can't take anymore specialist who don't know what's wrong when I'm telling the last 5 specialist that my thyroids are the problem. Not To Seem Negative but doctors are so over-rated!
I would recommend writing a long letter and asking for a response. They seem like they don't have time to listen when you are in front of them. Keep forcing them to listen. If they don't I would recommend calling the Administration office and informing them that they are not answering or helping you. Good luck. I agree - they are overated :)
Have you had testing done, to confirm there is nothing wrong with your thyroid? If so, please post results here, so members can better assess what's going on with you. Be sure to include reference ranges, as those vary lab to lab and have to come from your own report.
I'm in pain daily and if I stand too long just washing the dishes my abdoman swell, That's why I pay for Health insurance so if something happen to me I can get the best care, So I thought. Maybe you can take my pain and swelling for one day and see if you would feel the same.
I have small nodules on my thyroid and abdomen but there to small for surgery. I was on synthroids 0.75, now i'm on 0.50. I'm having a colonoscopy friday to see what causing the swelling and pain. I've had a ct scan, ultra sound, x-ray blood work. I saw an ear nose and throat dr., a hernia dr., A GI doctor, A liver specialist and no one can give me answers
Thyroid nodules are a good indication of further thyroid issues, either currently present or soon to show up. It's not the least unusual for symptoms to be present, before labs indicate an issue, particularly, if Hashimoto's is present.
Doctors are not infallible and often do not rely enough on symptoms.
