About Me: Female, 38, Katy, TX, member since Jul 2011
I recently had some blood work done and found that my thyroid is out of whack and was totally surprised. I would have never guessed and found out by accident. I've been overwhelmed with educating myself on hypothyroidism and thyroid in general. It's been an emotional
[More] experience because I didn't know anything about this problem and have been having major symptoms for a year now, and complained about symptoms off and on for as long as I can remember. So much information is out there it's confusing and I haven't been able to find treatment because I don't know where to turn. I hear how hard thyroid problems are to treat and I don't have a lot of money to just go anywhere so I really need to make an informed decision. The doctor I went to just happened to run an extensive blood test and she has prescribed me meds to get me started but wants me to see someone right away since my levels were so high.
