Don't give up! Keep fighting until you find a doctors that will listen to you. My doctors look at my blood tests and tell me I am normal. They do not even look at me or hear me. I am currently in the middle of trying to convince my doctors that I need to have my medication (synthroid) adjusted. I am exhibiting all the CLASSIC signs of Hypothyroidism. My weight has steadily crawled up and I now fluctuate between 210 and 225 pounds. My doctor keeps trying to convey to me that it is my fault and that I am not doing my part(exercise, diet, strength training) in order to lose weight. So they send me to nutritionists, recommend that I exercise more. Keep fighting...It is your health. I am beginning to realize that most doctors don't pay enough attention to the updates in treatment of the thyroid. I am going to keep fighting until someone hears me and understands. I am now on the verge of heart attack, stroke, diabetes, I have high blood pressure and if these doctors could only understand that my hormone needs to be adjusted my world would be a lot better. By the way, I am seeing doctors at the Veterans Hospital and the military base where I live and it is hard to get referrals when they do not believe you. But I am not giving up, you should not either.
Never Explain. Your friends do not need it and your enemies will not believe it anyway. So whatever you are, be a good one.
