Hello dear people, I had my second test results today; and I'm so bemused. I was expecting the need for the dosage to be upped, because I'm feeling no better, & 25mg is such a low dose! I was told the range was normal " TSH level = 2.9 mlU/L. Last test was 6.5.
I asked for the results to be printed out for me to be taken away, & the GP duly complied .. Very nice of her.
I expected there to be lots of numbers, but there weren't. However, I noticed she printed my whole history out, and I found it very interesting that I had my spine X rayed in January ( at my request) because my back is so bad that I have to sleep on an incline now ( I made a huge wedge shaped pillow, which- thank God, lets me sleep better). I was told by the GP that there was nothing wrong with my spine ( according to the X Ray), and my back pain was caused by being overweight.
So there it was, just lose weight. I've been battling with my weight all my life, so no easy task there.
But on the print out the gp gave me today, it states "mild facet arthrosis seen".
She didn't mention that.
I looked it up, and it a degenerative disease that's only going to get worse. But she said lose weight.
WTF? If this is mild, God help me when it gets worse.
Bad day, dark days ahead.
I've managed to obtain a low dose of Armour, so I'm going to try it, see if it helps. Got to try something.. Anything to have some energy again.
I've asked for a blood test to see my iron,vit D, etc levels.. Test is on Monday. I expect they will be normal, on paper I am perfect, so why the hell do I feel like the walking dead ? And how can I learn to not care how I physically feel anymore? I must learn to not be crippled by this feeling of being made of lead and rotting to death ?
Sorry to be so miserable but I feel like I'm up against a wall. ( I bet the fact that it's a full moon tomorrow doesn't help! )
