Great, thanks! The endo has not gotten the blood back yet, and i had blood drawn like 5 weeks or so ago. SO we dont know the antibodies or anything yet. I havent taken the inderol yet, but i am planning on it tonight. The thing i worry about is that i dont think my heart races 24/7. It definetly was today, but tomorrow it may be normal. I should still take the inderol then, even if im not having symptoms? I did notice though, that walking up hill, i cant make it. I had thought for years that it was because i was overweight, but now im slimmer (alot) and i am still huffing and puffing and feeling like my heart is going to just give up and say "Im done beating" lol. It feels so heavy in my chest and it feels like its hard for my heart to keep beating. Its fast, but it pounds in my chest. So the inderol will help with that too? The other day at the lake you have to walk up hill, but theres stairs. Stairs did nothign to help me. I still had to walk up the stairs to take my 3 yr old to the potty....and i almost couldnt make it. I had to stop every few steps and lean on the railing.
Today the endo was not open, buit they did call me back last night when i wasnt home, so i am hoping they had some results for me. Tomorrow first thing im calling.
I do want to take the PTU, but this stupid endo said 5 weeks ago that he wants to wait 6 months for it to go away. He didnt know though (Because i was so hyper and forget things to tell him) that during my pg i had symptoms of the same nature, only worse. I was shaking daily instead of once every few days or so. So much that i had my mw lend me her glucometer thinking it was low blood sugar. It wasnt, my sugars were always fine, so she said maybe eat more protein to balance the sugar. Now i know it was the thyroid. So i know my body, and i know i did have this during my pg. He thinks if i did, i would have gone into a thyroid storm, but that is rare, am i correct? I could have, but i didnt, but that doesnt mean i didnt have hyperthyroid back then. i still had the same symptoms ive been having for the past 3 years. I just didnt think much about them because i figured that it was either blood sugar, or my hormones. I did not have the symptoms as badly, except for the shaking, but i never though about it much. When i used to bring my symptoms up to the doc i used to have 3 years ago, he would say, barbara you are a nurse you know too much i think its all in your head and from anxiety. He would tell me my thyroid was fine, and didnt want to "waste money" by having it tested. But i knew the symptoms and i knew i was having a great deal of symptoms...it was the first thing i thought of. I dont know....i may switch endos if this one wont give me ptu...i cant understand waiting 6 months. My GP even said 6 months was too long.
