hi, my name is debber, and I have been so confused with all this thyroid stuff. I went to the doctor a few years ago and it was under and they put me on a synthroid and I didn't see any difference but yet my blood work was in the normal range, but I was still having symtoms such as sweating, hair loss, dry skin, gaining weight (115 to 135). Well I went to a different doctor who is specialist in thyroid and she put me on a desecrated thyroid med that I have to get from Canada and also on estrogen/progesterone crème as I am 48. Well, now the blood work shows I am overactive lol. I have lost weight being on this medicine and I feel my hair and skin feels different too. I was told my thyroid was 0.01. I really don't know who to trust on all of this. It just seems like I keep having these symptoms and no one is helping me.
