Wanted: A Normal Working Thyroid

Just an FYI on my fatigue...and crap. I had blood work and an ultrasound on my thyroid last week and I missed my appointment this morning to find out the results. I should have known better to make an appointment so early. I'm NEVER fully functioning by that time. Ugh. So now I'm hoping that the doctor's office will call and give me the results over the phone. All I know is that I'm super tired still, really crabby, very irritable, have headaches,my memory stinks (uh, that's pretty obvious by missing that appointment!) and have ZERO energy.

Do you currently have any of these symptoms? YES!! YES, I DO!! I marked the ones in red that I have. I got this list from a thyroid help website. Anyways...back to feeling blah. :-

Palpitations (rapid or forceful heart beat)
Poor concentration
Memory loss
Difficulty sleeping
Excessive need for sleep

Weak muscles
Sore muscles
Dry skin

Itchy skins
Unusual hair loss
Dry hair
Cracking nails
Infrequent bowel movements or hard stools

Persistent pain or swelling at the front of the neck
Sensation of a lump in the throat
Eye pain or double vision
Swelling or protrusion of eyes
Change in facial appearance
Difficulty tolerating cold

Coming from someone who only has half a thyroid and that half has a goiter the size of a small child on it....if you find a working thyroid let me know cuz I'd be interested in one too!!!

I was on synthroid for a while but it litterally made me crazy and I've been off of it for 14 years and have just learned to live with the symptoms.

Hang in there, I hope you get some good news!
