Hi Laura!  Doing fine on this side of the bridge - LOL.  Saw Dr. Weiss only once in Aug. He seemed OK.   Just had a TSH and T4 drawn on Mon.  No results yet.  I'm an employee of LMHS and have all my labs done at CCH, so I may take a trip to CCH tomorrow and get my own results.  I've actually been feeling pretty good.  I'm on 50 mcg of Synthroid.  I think I may have developed reflux, though.

Hi,

I just added a comment about the drug companies. I agree with all you were talking about. Check out my bio. I do the all natural way of living and I'm 48 and very healthy for my age. I still don't even wear glasses! Knock on wood. LOL. Let's talk sometime.

Just a quick note to say hi! Hope you're feeling better this week.  Wish me luck on gettng in to see a doctor today.  They act like I am crazy because I want to talk to dr. about all this.  I have never talked to her since June when she diagnosed it with blood work and just sent out messages via nurse and prescribed meds.  I may have to switch dr.'s but I have always liked her.  Oh well, I'm nervous for some reason - Ithink because I think she's giong to think I'm nuts.  You can tell my day isn't starting out good by my typos.  Oh well, I figure you know what I'm saying.

Have a good day.

Just a quick note to say hi!  Hi Laura!  Appt went fine.  Told me I have Hashimoto's right away, and started me on 50 mcg of Levoxyl.  Have only been taking it for a week, so not sure if I feel any different quite yet.  I really don't feel all that bad right now . . .the 'lump in throat' feeling has subsided dramatically.  He's not doing a FNA of the nodules . . .said mine are not hot nor cold . . . showed up on ultrasound only, didn't show up on thyroid scan.  We'll see . . . thanks for asking!!

Laura I posted at the forum to  get help and advice and not with Dr.Lupo becasue it's very difficult to get a post in there.I noticed 5-6 replies to others and I got 2 ..one telling me I had posted wrong place. and the other saying I didn't have a Thyroid problem??? disappointed"yes" i was hoping to get some help and friend along the way.Sorry I guess I don't fit in.I won't repost so it's ok even if my post is now on page 4. Sorry for any inconvience.

Just a quick note to say hi!  hi laura, i sent you a message but i may have forgotten to send it !!  yes i'm confused again.  i have quit taking the armour cuz having my tsh level low just doesn't sound healthy to me . your tsh is such a vital hormone. for your body.  at first my levels were all normal tsh-2.50 and thyroxine-1.05, my t3-219, not normal...my dr. did say that my t4 does not convert to t3 in my body.  like i really understood wtf she was talking about??!!  so can you explain better? thanks,s2

Hi Laura,

Thanks for your comment.  

I'm just done with the neck tightness, lack of energy, anxiety, all of it.  

We're the same in that I too want to get back to my healthy, tough self.  And I know we will - it just takes some time and patience.

Thanks again and it was great to hear from you!

Have a good day,

Deb

Just a quick note to say hi!  I hope your birthday went great!!!  I might be in the over 40 club but I made a statement on my 35th birthday that I was resorting back to 21 and was going to start each year in a minis pattern; so I guess that makes me a teenager now.  LOL.  Wish I felt that way still; nevertheless, I am a fighter and always will be.  It's in the blood line.  I will not get old gracefully.  LOL.  That leaves my doctor with gray hear.  lol  I hope you had a good birthday.  Take care;   Amy

Just a quick note to say hi!  Thanks for getting back to me.  I'm at work right now and just feel like ****.  Oh well.  I will wait another two weeks to see Weiss and see what he says . . . Hopefully he'll at least start me on Synthroid . . I'll keep you posted.  How much did Pardo cost for an office visit??  :-)  Thanks, Tracy

Just a quick note to say hi!  Hi, just wanted to let you know how my MD appt went today and get your input.  First of all, my last TSH was 5.3 and my thyroperoxidase AB is 704.  My MD says I have 'something autoimmune thyroid' going on, but is not calling me hypo.  I think she's deferring to the endo I will see on Aug 21.  My two nodules showed up on ultrasound, but not on thyroid scan, so she says they're neither hot nor cold.  Oh, and she wanted me to see Pardo, but he doesn't take my insurance, so I will see Richard Weiss.  I will probably be biopsied.  The only thing she IS treating is my severe osteoporosis I seem to have in my spine.  I personally think it's all related.  I personally think I have hashi's.  Maybe early stages, if that's possible.  Thoughts????

Just a quick note to say hi and thank you for all of your support!  I did not have to have surgery today!  OMG the nodule is gone!!!!! 2 techs and a radiologist did the US again today after I got preped and there was no nodule anymore.  The cyst is still there, but they are not worried about that.  I go back in 6 months for another US.  So excited!!!  Again, thanks for your support!  Much love ~Kim

Thank you for everything!  Thanks for the info Laura, it's really helpful.  I see my PCP on Aug 5.  I've already dx myself, so we'll see if she agrees - LOL.  I see the endo on Aug 21, first appt. I could get, and not real happy but have to wait.  So far, I'm not feeling too badly, just tired most of the time, but have been that way for a few years.  Figured it was just me getting older AND working 12 hr night shifts.  Go figure.  I'll let you know how things turn out.  Tracy

Thanks for letting me know about the new thread for those of us on Armour.  This may be a silly question but.... how do I get to it?  I would really like to be a part of this support group for Armour.

How are you feeling?  I tried to go to 120 mg, but had heart palps the 2nd night, so I'm back on my 105 mg, which is fine.  I am going to see my new doctor next Friday and they are supposed to be one of the best thyroid docs in Colorado.  It will be great to have confidence/trust in a doctor again!!  Take Care and let me know how to get to the new thread.

Thanks!!

Wow, 4 surgeries on benign tumors???  Do you know if the four were the same thing?  Your throat????  In addition to thyroid hell, I just could not imagine!  My goodness, it is so good to know I am in great company.  This is all just so scary to me.  Next year has GOT to be a better year (for all of us!!!!)  Thanks a million really.  I feel like I am armed for this doc tomorrow so I will not cave to the "you don't need a biopsy" I feel sure he will try and feed me.  I guess that is mean to not give'em the benefit of the doubt, but then again, they have no problem not giving it to us, ya know?  I AM SOOO THANKFUL for all of you here!  Many hugs! ~Kim
