Me: an update

Thanks to all of you who have been praying, sending positive vibes etc. for me. I went to the doc on Monday, and as well as my thyroid being out of whack, I'm also anemic. They did another test to find out which type, but hopefully we'll get it figured out soon.

My thyroid was the culprit of all the really scary symptoms, and though I've been dealing with thyroid stuff since I was 13, Ive never experienced symptoms this bad. I just switched back to armor thyroid after being off of it since my pregnancy with Mattias, and it's been a little difficult to figure out the correct dosage. I still like it waaaaaaaay better than synthroid. Just my little opinion, though.

So that's what was up with me! Looking forward to getting my mo jo(anne) back!

  4. I'm glad that you found out what was causing the crazy symptoms. Luckily my thyroid is behaving for the time being. I have hashi's. I was on synthroid for 6 months and I started to have heart palpitations and had to stop.

    Hope you feel better soon!!!!!

  5. aww stinkers, hopefully they'll get all the right meds prescribed quickly. My anemia hasn't improved after four months of treatment, and now they're looking at doing a transfusion - YIPPEE (yes, very sarcastic) however I can hope that will help with my never ending tiredness.
    I hope today is a great day for you Jo!
