      sounds to me like you are going through the vicious cycle my Endocrinologist said I

      was starting to go through. I opted to kill my thyroid, and just take a pill the rest of my life. I had it done this last Thursday. Now I am going through some aches, but was told this would happen, but not for long. I had options, and found this to be the best for me.

      I wish you well. Speak to your Endo, or doc and ask for options

      Hope you do well.

      Thank you. I still feel the same but it is supposed to get better gradually over time. Just knowing that makes me feel better. I do wish you well my friend. We can do this. Stay positive!

      lightheaded, and times when i felt I was going to fall. Then I went hypo.

      I just felt awful all the time. The toughest part was the long wait until one day i called my Endo and said when are you going to kill my thyroid?

      Thankfully, I got a call from the hospital last Wednesday, and they asked me when do you want to come in? I Said tomorrow! They said ok, is 11:00 am good, I said, oh yeah! i still feel horrible, but knowing that within 4 weeks, I will feel better, and be put on medication.

      I can do this. Keep bugging your Endo until he/she does something for you!

      Hope this helps. I am here, so anytime you need someone, know I am available. ok?
