Just cannot do this anymore, I'm losing my mind

I'm trying to figure out what is wrong with me since my doc says I'm fine. But I don't feel fine. I'm now on prescription Vitamin D for 4 weeks because he said my "stores are low."  Okay so would that make me feel horrible?  You know how you feel when you get scared out of your mind?  That's how I feel. I feel like my adrenaline is going non-stop. I ache, my mouth is so dry, my throat feels constricted at times, I feel like I just want to sleep but when I lay down my eyes are wide open. I also feel like I'm breathing really slow and deep.  What the heck is this? And when am I ever going to get better?  I just can't do this anymore.  And then today I get the fantastic news that he wants me to do that STUPID LID AGAIN in June for my scan. Could life get any worse?

It could always be worse! It sounds like you have a bit of anxiety because of the situation and that mixed in with all that's happening no wonder you feel awful. Hang in there - for every struggle you endure a blessing is sure to come your way.

Best Wishes~

Is the prescription for Rocotrol? I have heard it can have side effects. I was told to take it, but instead I take 1000iu of over the counter VitD.

Good point by above poster .. wow .. interesting!  I just found out yesterday that the Vit B6 i was taking was giving me side effects I described to my Urologist and he said to switch brands to a name brand which wouldn't do it .. interesting, isn't that?  The B6 is for kidney stones not to grow; not thyroid matter.

I'm so sorry you are struggling.  And to add the LID on top of it - that is just cruel!!!  Stupid LID.  I wish I had some answers for you, but all I can say is we're here for you. I hope you're soon feeling better!

    I will pray for you.  I have chatted with you before on this board.  After my successful treatment on Armour for 40 years and then in Dec 2007 having heart palpitations which would not go away after lowering my dosage 4 times, I was changed to Synthroid.  I have really felt terrible since and all kids of side effects either from not being stabilized or from the medication, I have felt like I was dying.  I am only a little better now after being on .88 mcg for about 4 weeks.  I go back for labs this week and doctor's appointment the following week.  I had no idea thyroid disease could be so debilitating.  Hang in there - that is what I am trying to do so we can all get our lives back.

Thinkinf of you,

Thanks everyone. I guess I just needed to vent because I'm getting so frustrated.  I'm now taking 50,000 iu of  Vitamin D (Drisdol) once a week for 4 weeks to get my level back up. But, I've been feeling like this for a couple of weeks.  And it's usually bad during the middle of the day. I'm fine when I wake up and I"m fine in the evening.  I'm wondering if it's just because my TSH is so low now. Mine has always been in the 4-5 range before the surgery and now it's .32. I don't know. I'm not taking any other medications, just synthroid and vit. D and calcium.  I'm going to have to use some mind over matter here I guess and just do what I tell my kids I coach "Suck it up and deal!"  Which is so hard because I just want to whine.....But I caaaaan't!
