I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism on June,2014.My TSH at that time was 13 and I was prescribed 50ug Levothyroxine T4.I had my first Thyroid ultra sound 6 months after starting Levothyroxine and I was very disappointed to hear that I had multinodular goiter.I wasn't expecting it because the endo said my gland should be fine because my TPO was 13.
Anyway,I want to know if anyone has hypothyroidism along with multinodular goiter?
Is it possible that wrong dose(under or over medication) of T4 can cause these nodules?
My TSH was fluctuating in the beginning and the endo kept changing my Levo dose.I complained her many times that I was feeling tightening in my throatand difficulty in swallowing but she didn't listen.But when I had my ultra sound,it was clear that I had nodules.
I still have the nodules and the new doctor ,I saw 2 months ago,said that these nodules won't shrink or go away.So the doctor is just going to keep my thyroid levels under control or within the clinical range.
I know that I have to find a doctor who can listen to me and treat me by my symptoms not by the lab reports.But it's impossible to do this because there are no holistic or integrative doctors or nutritionists where I live.So I have to self-medicate myself.I am going to start with either Natural Dessicated Thyroid (Nutri-med) or T3/T4 combo such as Bitiron or add T3 (cytomel,thyro3 or terteroxin) to my levothyroxine.
I would also like to know how everyone take their basal temperatures ?I take mine with a digital thermometer and I place it under my armpit. I record it daily and it's around 35.7 or 35.8.
But my resting pulse rate is around 70-75.
