I have Hashi's and am experiencing hypo symptoms (cold all the time, depressed, fatigue, moodiness, short tempered, peripheral neuropathies, hair loss, etc).
I have gone through 6 doctors in the past couple of months and no one is listening. I'm in "normal range" so no one will increase my dosage, even though my symptoms are getting worse each week. The depression and moodiness/temper is the scary part. I have three kids at home with me (2, 5 and 7)....and if you have kids you know that on a normal day, they can test your patience. Well, factor in fatigue and depression and I really don't know what to do. I have had to lock myself in a room this week because I was afraid that I would do something to them. My anger and yelling at them scared me so much that I was really afraid that I might hit them or something. So I literally locked myself in a room, cried and just shook.
I can't take the rejection of seeing another doctor and having them tell me nothing is wrong. Each time I do that, I just feel worse and worse. I feel like I'm in a downward spiral and will soon lose control. I have an appointment with an endo (from the Top Thyroid Dr list) but it isn't until AUGUST. I called my current endo (who refuses to test my FT3....if that tells you anything) and explained that I'm afraid of hurting my kids and that I need to be seen ASAP. Guess what they said? We can get you in June 13th. Great, thanks. In the meantime, I will hurt my kids, fall asleep behind the wheel from fatigue... Why won't anyone listen!?!
I don't expect anyone to have any answers for me. I just wanted to vent here, where I KNOW people listen. Thanks for being here :)
