I'm doing okay, Caro. Headaches aren't as frequent, but still a bit of an issue. I just don't feel 100%- kind of frustrating. But, I'm only 3 mo. out so I'm going to give the Synthroid a few more months before deciding if I want to try the pig hormone. Not sure what to do there as I don't feel terrible, but not great either. I am going to start getting acupuncture though! I get a free session to try it, then once I get the referral, a year's worth (as many sessions as I want) for only $15 for a 1 hour session (my copay). Pretty cool. So, I'm hoping the acupuncture does good things. When are your next labs?
Hello Alexis. How wonderful that you will soon start acupuncture. Please let me know how it goes. $15/1hr … not bad. You mentioned “my copay”. Is that really your medical copay for it? Are you able to use your medical insurance for it? I want to be able to use my med. ins. for it but I don't think I can. If it is your med. copay, how wonderful that you are able to do that.
I completely hear you regarding not feeling 100% yet. I'm the same. My labs were last week. I'm hypo and I'm frustrated about it because my next Dr.'s appt was supposed to be last wed but the Dr. had to cancel and they have re-scheduled me for until the 2nd wk of Oct. What frustrates me is that I talked to the nurse right after the cancelation and she said that she would try talking to him about my labs to see how to proceed. She hasn't called me back yet (1 wk later). I have developed headaches and I don't know what from. It starts around my ear and goes to the back of my head where it turns into a migraine. It is so frustrating. I know it can be anything … hypo #s, allergies, anything. I'm like you, I want to feel well again. Its been since June since my thyroid problems started and it can get very frustrating at times. I'm trying to stay positive though
It could be worst, right?
If I may ask, how do you describe your headaches? Is there something that triggers them? I noticed yesterday that mine might be triggered by washing my hair. I was doing just fine yesterday. I washed my hair with hot water and next think I know, the ear thing started, followed by the headache/migraine.
Check out my labs. I posted them not long ago. Thanks you for asking http://www.gdatf.org/forum/topic/42893/
Let me know how it goes with the acupuncture. I'm very hopeful that it will make a difference for you and that soon you will be headache free.
