I assume you had thyroid cancer?  Why have they waited so long to do the radiation?

Your symptoms could be caused by hypothyroidism; I'd certainly think you'd be hypo after 4 months with no hormones.

Have you had any thyroid blood tests done recently?  If so, please post results and be sure to include reference ranges, which vary lab to lab and have to come from your own report.

yes I have thyroid cancer they waited for me to heal then they had me do this other test right after to see how much thyroids left or hormone this is all new too me im very young im 24 and dont know much I barley seen my oncologist he was shocked too how long its been but most of it is always waiting for approvals from my insurance but the insurance is putting a rush on it they said by tuesday it should be in the system approved so i believe i should be getting my radiation done by next week and my surgeon said right after thell give me my pills

Have you had any thyroid hormone blood tests?  They should have done Free T3, Free T4 and TSH tests to determine your levels.  Please post results, if you have them and be sure to include reference ranges, which vary lab to lab and have to come from your own report.

Do you have any of the typical symptoms of hypothyroidism, such as fatigue, weight gain, muscle/joint aches/pains, hair loss, etc?

We can't really know of your sleep/dream issues are thyroid related without seeing what your actual thyroid hormone levels are. While it's possible your symptoms could thyroid related, they could also be caused by other things.

If anyone wants to chime in and disagree with me, but likely keeping someone off thyroid meds for 4 months after a total thyroidectomy is dangerous and malpractice.

I'd suggest find another endocrinologist, take your lab results and any other paperwork you have to document your condition, and just show up there with your boyfriend tomorrow morning.

I understand where your coming from It is getting alot worse as time goes by I finally flipped on all the doctors and Insurance and my Medical Group But Its already gonna all be taken care of that Its too late too go somewhere else im just gonna have to start all this over and wait for approvals all over again which will take longer almost gonna be doing my radiation Thanks for the support I was just wondering If all my new symptoms were from not having my Thyroids and not being on any meds for sooooo long I just know Im getting more and more tired the longer It takes
