My thyroid check yesterday was awful
My thyroid check yesterday was awful. I gained 6 lbs this week. 30 lbs total gain since she started treating me. I asked her to increase my meds to what it was three months ago. I told her I kept diary of thyroid medication ( that she changes constantly), dose, weight, and side effects, etc. for two years. Chart showed higher dose of NDT lead to weight loss, no pain, energy, sleep, etc. She walked over and put her hand on top of mine and said you have to stop blaming thyroid for weight gain, fatigue, etc. You have other conditions…fibro and depression. I don’t have fibro. My muscle pain/spasms/weakness disappeared when I started taking Florenif. This medication that I started taking this week caused my depression today. I started crying and said I am sick of being sick and overweight. I told her my heart was struggling on lower dose of med she prescribed and I couldn’t see her until 3 month appointment. I explained I went to PCP for help and didn’t get any. Endo knows PCP. I asked what am I supposed to do when I feel so ill I think I am going to die and can’t see her? She claims higher dose of med will weaken my bones. Yet, she prescribed it for over a year. My bone density is good. Two specialists she sent me to said pain, etc is thyroid related.
I left her office with rx I can’t fill, and lab and office appointment for 6 weeks and more depressed. Not sure I want to go back.
