Last October I went on a diet and lost 30 lbs. I needed to loose this weight. Then in Jan. 2017, I got strep throat. In Feb I had my regular yearly physical with my GP and blood work came back mild for hyperthyroidism. He repeated the blood work in 30 days and it was very slightly worse. Referrered to endocrinologist. Thyroid scan showed slightly enlarged thyroid, with several small nodules. She said nothing really needed treatment at this point and she would monitor. I'm feeling anxious, can't sleep, running to the bathroom all the time, and have patches of dry, itchy skin on my legs. Now the depression is creeping in and I fell generally lousy. What can I do to get my Dr to treat this so I can get back to my normal, active lifestyle? Do your readings have to be awful to warrant medication? Frustrated.
