So per my last blog its been a crummy month healthwise....
Went to the Dr. Tuesday hoping for some answers regarding perpetual headaches going on 4 weeks now.... but really didn't get any other than possible sinus headache, or rebound headache. Not helpful, and still have the headache.
Had lab work done, and got the call back today that I have an over active thyroid?? Say WHA? Seriously. Okay, so some of the symptoms make sense, my hair has been falling out and breaking at a concerning rate as well as I'm tired and what not... But I'm completely thrown because this is not at all what I was expecting. I was prepared for anemic "take some iron pills" but not for this. Not that this is a death sentence or anything, I just always considered myself a healthy person who takes care of her self (or at least has in the last 5 years, before that I wasn't so diligent.. but I woke up).
So now I go back to the Dr. on Monday to find out more. I leave tomorrow for California to see a long "lost" cousin. She's not really lost, we talk all the time, but its been years since we've seen eachother. So hopefully getting away will 1. take my headache away and 2. keep me distracted from pondering the meaning behind my diagnosis.
Anyone with over active thyroid your input is appreciated :)
