Get the book HYPOTHYROIDISM TYPE 2 by Mark Starr MD, read it and then take along the list of symptoms in the book, highlight yours, and go talk to (argue with?) your doc. I got my doc so upset w/me but he ended up giving me an Rx for desiccated thyroid which you can get at a compounding pharmacy. Docs just don't know, and they do what they were taught --- incorrectly -- in med school. I ordered a copy of the book to take along as a gift to my doc the next time I go. I wish they'd stop depending so much on the "numbers" which may not mean much, and really listen to their patients instead. Next step for me is to try to find an endocrinologist who will prescribe desiccated thyroid, and if I can't find one by myself, I'll ask the compounding pharmacist who does prescribe it. There's more than one way to skin a cat, as they say.
