I don’t, but my Darling Husband just found out that he has a thyroid issue that they have been treating for something incorrect since the beginning of the year.  We can’t seem to get the correct tests done to give us the answers.  He has been to take the same test 5 times and they still have yet to do the test correctly.  He is so tired all the time and not having the answers after this long is frustrating.  Every time they screw something up, they want us to wait another month to try again. I am beyond frustrating and heading right into furious with the medical people that can’t seem to get their acts together enough to just do a simple blood test correctly.

I’m borderline hypothyroid (hypothyroid by the new TSH level standards but not by the old ones) and I’m dealing with the same kinds of issues, brain fog, constant fatigue, insanely dry skin. No one will treat me because I’m “borderline”. My mom has Graves disease, they killed her thyroid, and now she’s dealing with the same exact issues with her doctor as well. My only suggestion is to find another doctor, I know there are doctors out there who treat  the symptoms instead of the numbers. Sorry, I know that’s not much help but if anything I can offer some commiseration… :-/

@GFerg:  you poor thing. i have severe fatigue due to hormone & mineral imbalances. just wondering why did they kill your thyroid? can you take medication to fix it. have you been tested for hormones or mineral deficiences?

I know it’s time to have mine checked..10 years ago, during a TAC as i was told i had my thyroid a bit enlarged. I have several cases of Hypo and Hyperthyroid in both sides of the family (my paternal grandmother had hyper, my maternal grandmother has hypo) so i have a tendency. At the time i did make blood analyzes and all was good. Last month i checked my blood because i was thinking about wearing a IUD and the thyroid hormones were ok, i believe..thing is..i have been having a weird feeling in my throat and i just can’t sleep on my belly because the pillow pressures it and it bothers me..i still believe a bit silly to tell the doctor about this, but who knows??

I would look for another doctor if i were you..completely understand your frustration

PS – my maternal grandmother has the same procedure as you
