Hi, my name is Jason and I am 38 years old. About 2 years ago I started not being able to sleep at night off and on. It progressed to even with taking ativan and ZZZquill I couldn't sleep. I missed a blood test at work to check blood sugar and cholesteral. So I went to my doctor for the yearly physical and had it done. They called in October and said my thyroid was off just a bit and I might want to take levothyroxine. I started taking .5 mcgs and started to feel better in a few days. I still couldn't sleep at all even being tired. So then my hair started falling out and I went back to the doctor and she cut my dose in 1/2. She then scheduled me to have a ultrasound, and that came back as thyroiditis. Then today I get a call that I need a CAT scan because my lymph nodes are swolen on the left side and the one in my arm pit was HUGE a few weeks back, but has settled down even though it's still sore. Also she started me on Vitamin D and I have been sleeping better and stopped all the "aids" cold turkey a few months back. I know for the past few months my teeth have hurt on my upper left side even though I could never narrow it down to 1 tooth. I seem to always have drainage on my left side also. Should I be freaking out? It's hard not to and I talked to my doctors office today, but they really didn't tell me anything. Thank you in advance for the advice and have a nice day.
