Update on me

To: All
I now have a multinodular goiter {painful at times}  The Endo is not concerned about; however, when the synthroid runs out, difficulty swallowing comes back.  Yet, palpitations occur when I am on the doulble dose of synthroid {can't win for loosing}  I am feeling horrible!!  I feel like I am continuously falling apart.  My new PCM says he now thinks I have MVP or a heart murmur.  Urrr.  They keep finding things wrong with me, but not getting to the bottom of what is causing all of this!!!! URRRR.  Help please, anyone!

If your TSH is too hyper you can get symptoms as you describe --- pls. ask them for a repeat TSH bloodwork as they assess all this .. although I"m not a Dr., just a patient that's what comes to mind.

Hey Viv! Sorry to hear that you are feeling awful. I am not feeling too great either. Can I ask what number you were with the Ferritin levels? Mine are 4!!! I am seeing a hematologist today because this iron isnt helping!! Private message me when you get a chance..

Im sorry to hear your not feeling well!, U say u get palpations in ur neck? doesnt it feel like someone is choking u?, Thats how mine feel... Anyways... I think that you should get copies of all thyroid test and all other kinds of bloodwork because A situation that happend to me was.. I was on the within noraml limits of both  TSH and T4, The docs said I was fine... but I didnt see the bloodwork and I felt like ****! (still in the process of working it out).. Finally I got copies of all test and bc they didnt tell me that I was on high ranges within normal limits... I decided that there could  be more done and I can get right where I want to be and just find another doctor... Dont listen to "Your fine" if u know u dont feel right. Listen to your body because no one knows it like you do.
