How do I get a doctor to treat low thyroid hormone levels?

pothyroidism, but say they see no need to initiate treatment. She is now feeling worse. She is cold all of the time, her fatigue has worsened, and now she is experiencing numbness in her fingers and feet. I am so frustrated with doctors I don't know what to do. She has tried pushing herself to exercise more thinking that this would help (and after one doctor's comment that maybe she should try eating some salad), but then all she can do is sleep for hours afterwards because she is so wasted....

I am suffering from increased hypothyroid symptoms to the point where I cant get out of bed somedays.... anyone know of having tsh tests that are in contradiction w/ your symptoms?...

Bipolar Disorder? General doc. made new diagnosis without telling me?

s all over my living/kitchen and they were eating my dead cat-She's alive in real life-I called my doc and left a message with his nurse. I had to reschedule an appt. w/ a new psych. b/c they had no info on me after I waited a mth. and a half to see him, they lost info on me. I went to my gen. doc. to tell him what happened. He put me on 80mg of Geodon and 200mg of Lamictal, that's all I'm taking along w/ thyroid horm. He said what happened to me was an "episode". On the med. form that u give to the receptionist, "acute psychosis" and the presc. had "for BAD/Schizo Affective Disorder". Who knows what this means? Did he change my diagnosis w/out telling me? This episode scared my husband. I was screaming at him to kill the maggots. He didn't know what to do. Call 911 if this happens again?Advice?...


Pets and Thyroid


Pets and Thyroid Knowledge Base

She's 13 years old....we love her so much....too hard to decide...?

withering away to nothing...she's SO thin...and she refuses to eat. My father called lastnight to say that she's barely moving...and that he couldn't handle what needs to be done. I went to check on her this morning and she's running around and meowing...which I did not expect at all. I was totally prepared to get to my fathers, see her in terrible shape and do what needed to be done...but her actions swayed me. I know cats don't live forever...I know eventually we'll have to let her go....but when is the right time? Like I said before, she's not eating...very thin....doesn't get around like normal....but she's not lethargic...completely aware of herself and surroundings....should we give her more time?...
