Thyroidectomy due to graves/hyper/goiter. Had two thyroid storms before removal. Had RAI, but did not work so surgery was only option.

Muscle/bone pain
Submandibular gland removed (sialenditis)
Calcified ligament removed (Eagle syndrome)
A calcified mass removed on the submandibular gland removed
Two calcified lymph nodes removed under jaw line
A calcified mass removed in abdominal/pelvis area
Left ovary removed with complex cyst
Abscess in left buttock cut and drained. Had two different infections when sent to pathology - took 3 different types of antiboitics to get rid of it after a month.
Low B12, Low Vit D
High level of calcium but still within range level is 10 (lab range 8.6 - 10.3)
Weight loss
Night sweats
Still working on getting my thyroid medication to normal.
Freeze during the day
Constant urination - fallen bladder, well have minor procedure done to lift it.

Just had major surgery ( laparotomy to remove mass/ovary and complex cyst). What I thought would be a 2 in incision turned out to be about a 7 in incision. The surgeon had to actually move all of my organs out of the way in order to get to mass right underneath my aorta.  Survived it, but extremely sore and slight pain, but managable. I had this done two weeks ago. Will have the bladder procedure done in 3 weeks.

Right now, that is about all I can think of.

Lots of problems as well, so I'll jump on the bandwagon..........

severe environmental allergies (allergy shots failed to work)
pineal cyst, supposedly benign
thyroid disease of some sort that no one has been able to really diagnose
moderate sleep apnea
Vitamin D/B insufficiency (on the very low end of normal)
some sort of liver disease, probably from the two NSAIDs I'm taking
slowly decreasing RBC count (I'm anemic according to online sources) and increasing WBC count
lots of symptoms, like double-vision and arthritis, from whatever undiagnosed disease I have

I'm learning a lot about medicine, though...I guess that's the silver lining in the cloud.

I've given up on mine - he resents anyone else with a brain.  Looking elsewhere, cuz I've given enough of my life to this stupid disease and refuse to give up my brain to my PCP.  Thanks to all you great people here, I know what I'm lookin' for and refuse to stop until I find it.  Already discovered a conversion problem (no thanks to my pcp) and started on cytomel (also no thanks to pcp) - what a difference!!  Woohooo - feeling better than I have in a long time.  Not thinking that's the end of it, so trying to prepare for the next round!!  "Hashi attacks" come fast and furious sometimes.

I'm hypoT (with all the dreaded symptoms in varying degrees!) and also currently struggling with a T4/T3 conversion problem/cellular resistance - linked to my Vit D deficiency, my zinc/copper imbalance, my gluten sensitivity & a suspected oestrogen dominance. Things are improving, but it's a slow process.

I'm also a 'bad back' sufferer. I've got a large herniated disc at L4/5 & a smaller bulging disc with an annular tear at L3/4.  

Added to this, I get 'mondayitis' atleast once a week & seem to have an extremely low bullsh%t tolerance. Lol.
