Thyroid Levels Down

Well, my Thyroid Levels are still in the acceptable range, so everything is fine. But, they are down from my last scan. Last time my TSH was at 2.3mU/L and this time it's at 1.6mU/L. *sigh* This drop could probably explain my fatigue recently. I need to be more careful about not forgetting to take my Thyroid medication... it's the one medication that I forget to take, or forget to take properly (I'll sometimes eat breakfast or take other medication as soon as 15 minutes after taking it because I'm in a rush). I'm going to really focus on taking my medication properly and get rescanned after X-Mas and see if it's gone up any, and hopefully my fatigue levels will be better too.

Starting a new thyroid medication today called Cytomel. Still taking the Synthroid too, but now also taking the Cytomel. Yeah, I'm supposed to be taking both... don't worry, I checked, I checked twice, with both doctors... the one who prescribed it and with my family doctor.

We'll see how it works out. Maybe my hair will stop being so freakin' brittle... it's been awful lately.

I also need to go get a hair cut... to help with the fact I have such awful hair... but... it is SO hard to get a hair cut because of my migraines and because of the chiari... having my neck/head put into all those awful positions while the hair dresser does his thing... it's unbearable. But... even people with great "healthy" hair need to get their hair cut so they don't get split ends and stuff... and, in my case, it is even MORE necessary...

*sigh* oh well, since the headaches are back this week Anyway... I might make an appointment to get my hair cut. Then maybe what with the short hair and with the help of the new thyroid meds... maybe my hair won't be so so so terrible... I remember after I first started taking the Synthroid and my thyroid levels got to a normal level... people started randomly commenting on how beautiful my hair was. It would be nice to hear that again at some point.
