Well...I've been fighting w/my doctor for 2 years about my thyroid and went in for another thyroid test as early in the morning as possible. The most recent reading which was done in the afternoon last year was 3.327 (highest range at the lab is 5.50). The early morning test at 8:00 a.m. came back at 6.329! YIPPEE! She has now prescribed me levothyroxine and I will pick it up tomorrow. Also, my Vit. B12 is low, so she's prescribed a B12 shot to be given once a month. I had no idea my Vit. B12 was low. Maybe I will actually be able to get off the couch now????! Not walk across room and be totally winded???? I've gain so much weight it's pathetic, so I'm hoping maybe the thyroid med will help with that, too. I'll keep you all posted.
