Awww… Hugz!! I’m sorry you are going thru this. The good news is that if you can wait that long for an appt. it’s not life threatening. Although I hope you can go for the MRI and rule out a tumor, sooner rather than later.

I can’t begin to imagine how you feel but I can understand your panic and sence of urgency. Was the endo reccomended to you? Or do you have an option of seeing someone else? 

It’s not the same, but I took DH to the emergency room last saturday, they thought he had migraines. Finally on tuesday he got a hold of the neurologist, who took him on wed. They scheduled an MRI for the next day, the dr saw him immediately after and told him to get to an eye dr. within the next day for pictures of his eyes. Fortunetly, no tumor, but he’s going for a spinal tap first thing 2moro morning. Hopefully they will figure out the cause of his problem after that and he can get started on the road to recovery.
 
I hope you are able to get there soon too.

Yikes Having to wait that long sucks! But the good thing is that hopefully you will be able to figure everything out soon. And you can always try calling back if they have any cancellations.

Oh girl that sucks.  I agree to talk to the receptionist every so often to see if they can bump you up.  When I first when to my pain specialist, I had an appointment for the end of the summer and they called me in June or July and asked if I could come in the next day.  So it is possible to be moved up!

I hope they figure out that is going on and can help you feel better!

sorry you are going through this, but happy to hear it is nothing life threatening! I know how frustrating it is having to wait to get into a specialist. Make friends with the receptionists, and call often. Sometimes they will even put a note on your file, so that you are the first one called if there is a cancelation

@Rouquine:  If you have a twitter account, I would suggest you looking up “ThyroidMary” and following her. She’s a thyroid patient advocate, and has a lot of good info for the person just starting out in thyroid illness. (Thank you, Mary!) 

Also, here is a good site for you to get out the visceral emotions that come in the “limbo” phase of figuring out WTH is going on in your body: http://dearthyroid.org/

This site may take you to some other helpful resources as well. I went through this too, and it’s a difficult road to go down in the beginning, but once you find answers, things get a little easier.
