Home again with DH

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

I didn't get a chance to blog last night. DH and I did a lot of shopping when he got in and we had to drive to his mom's from Dallas to stay for the night.

I did well on my eating yesterday. Today I ended up with 300 extra calories. I was having a hard day.

In fact when DH woke me up for breakfast I started sobbing. That exhausted kind of sobbing or like someone died! He asked if I was stressed and I swear I don't think I am.

I thought surely when I heard from the doctor she would find I had thyroid issues but when I called in the office said all my tests were normal!

So, now I don't know why I have hair falling out and I am tired. I need to call back and make sure she checked for enemia but I think she did. I was so surprised they didn't find anything I didn't think to ask.

DH says maybe I just overdid while he was gone. But, that doesn't explain the hair loss.

I have an appt in a month with a pulmonologist for my Sarcoidosis. Maybe he will have some answers for me.

We are finally home tonight. I have a meeting tomorrow and then we will start working on our houses again.

I guess I should be glad my tests were good.

    Just to let you know, all my tests came back in normal range, however, I insisted on a thyroid scan, and guess what, tumors, nodules..I had been gaining weight, tired beyond belief, hair falling out, moody, exhausted...and my doc told me it was just "normal aging" ..I was 55 at the time, had been pretty active( worked 12-14 hr shifts as RN in sister had just been diagnosed with thyroid cancer too(which is why I insisted on scan. It was recommended by 2 surgeons to have thyroid I did...its taken 2 yrs to start to feel normal and an additional 60 lbs to my frame. Dont let docs tell you nothing is wrong, you know your body the best...insist on thyroid scan..and hormone tests..get a new proactive in your health care...sometimes the squeaky wheel gets treated better...good luck to you

    I wish I remembered what tests were done on me 30 some years ago but the typical test for thyroid issues did not come back positive. My Dr was very thorough and asked for a different kind of test and that one showed the thyroid issues. Did you see a GP or an endocrinologists. GP's get many false negatives. The first GP I saw told me I was drinking too much coffee. (2-3 cups a day)
    That said how does your hair fall out? If it comes out in clumps you may have alopecia areata. Thought to be caused by tension. It is an auto-immune disease

    You lose roughly 100 hairs from your head every day.

    Medication, physical or emotional stress, lack of protein, extreme dieting, ecessive shampooing and blow-drying or Hormone changes are a few reasons.

    Keep trying to get to the bottom of this then you can relax.

    Very strange for sure. Something not's right if your feelings are all over the place. It will be nice to find out the answer!
