Well I ended up in Er again today.  Elevated heart rate and tremors, anxiety (so they say).  
Well turns out that what I suggested weeks ago and all 4 doctors so no way it would effect anything.  Well guess they finally agree its causing alot of my problems.  How nice of them to finally agree.  Only been to ER twice and not to mention how crazy out of wack my body has been for oh about 2-3 weeks.  They finally agree Ritalin and Thyroid meds with the combo of no thyroid are spinning me out of control.  Ghee this was one of my first questions "are you sure I should keep taking my Ritalin"  and " oh yes Mrs. Spitzke dont change that, it has nothing to do with this".  I asked this to every doctor I saw.  So now they get it, stopping cold turkey (not sure about that) but willing to try anything.  Lowering my dose of levothroxine to 100mg although I dont understand why my labs are higher from last week.   O.k I can accept the anxiety attacks because It was pretty hard to control when I was overmedicated.  I know this for sure tomorrow im finding a new Endo DR!

You poor girl! I am so sorry you have been given such a rough time. I call most doctors glorified auto mechanics. Have you checked vitals.com ? It allows for patients to give personal revises of their doctors. Might be worth a try. Also try http://www.thyroid-info.com/topdrs/california.htm I LOVE that site too. Good luck finding a new endo. I'm on #2 she's adorable but...she is 2 hours away so I am shopping for one more local.
