I need any advice you all have to offer.
Jan 07 Dx hypo TSH 86.05 (0.34-4.82)
May 08 Surgery Rt Lobe removed Dx Fibrous variant Hashimoto's thyroiditis Surgeon tested TPO antibodies 911 (<35)
I have been on several different doses of Synthorid over the last 3 years .50mcg to .125mcg.
I have been to 3 endo's all of which say symptoms menopause or get antidepresents from GP. Have been on so many different antidepressants and sleeping pills I could start my own pharmacy.
I am going thru menopause (pre menopause) Last period July 09 FSH - 80.4 LH 40.6
My GP who had finally started to work with me left the area in Oct 09. So I am now trying to find a GP who will listen to me and will run the proper thyroid test.
7/09 My last endo appointment Labs TSH 3.68 (0.47 - 5.01) FT4 0.93 (0.71-1.85) .75 mcg Synthroid. Told him I felt awful told me labs in range I will not see you for 6 months. Symptoms are not thyroid.
10/09 had yearly physical with gyno labs TSH 14.52 (0.34-4.82) FT4 0.6 (0.7 -1.6) sent to new endo. Told me TSH was high because I wasn't taking meds right. Increased synthorid to .100 mcg. ( I have a pill box and take meds every morning I may have missed one day but I take my meds because I want to feel better.
Maybe I am just a nut case because I seem to be going thru a cycle of where I will feel ok for a few weeks and then bam out of now where for about 10 days or so I have periods of rapid heart beat, chest discomfort, palpations, anxious, irritable, nervousness, headaches, cant sleep, indigestion, body aches, hot, night sweats/hot flashes, loose stools, weight loss, mind racing, throat discomfort. I am finding it hard to deal with these so called cycles (for lack of a better word) mentally and phyically.
4/10 New GP did order a 24 hr holt monitor and it did show I had 72 (as he called them episodes) ordered Eco said everything is fine take Magneisum. TSH 1.04 (0.34-4.82) .100 mcg Synthroid said thyroid labs are good must be menopause.
Thank you for your time.
