Pregnancy, Hypothyroidism, Birthmarks?

. He came out 9 lb and 3 oz. With apgar scores of 9 and 9. I was very relieved, after reading all that junk on the internet, about what can all go wrong. Well, he was born with strok bites on his face and back of his neck. No big deal, he is otherwise healthy. Besides, they fade with time. The only one you can see now, is the one on his neck. Well, when I got him out of the bath tonite, I noticed on his butt and the back of his leg, little spots. Only 2. I looked them up, and sure enough they are Cafe au lait birthmarks. Does anybody have any experience with these? Should I let his peditrician know? Could they possibly have been caused by my being hypothyroidism while being pregnant? PLease let me know....

Food feeling stuck in chest-possible thryoid cancer - something else?

ancer that I took anti anxiety pills, but now stopped. Took some trazadone to sleep but now stopped. I was getting sharp chest pains and felt food sticking in my throat halfway down in esophoges. So, I started prilosec thinking I might have GERD. Could stress cause GERD? Well, the chest pains are gone, but the food stuck in my throat feeling is still there. So, then I thought that was from the possible thyroid cancer. So I asked my endicrinologist and he said they are not related. So, I am at a loss what this is from. I am so freaked out I have cancer and it has spread down my esophages from my thyroid. Anyone know what this is from? Also, other symptom since this all started is morning congestion every morning. Never had that before either. (2 months now) Please help me?...

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?...

My dog woke up in the middle of the night panting, or breathing really hard, whta's the problem?

, is in thyroid meds, but her thyroid level isn't that low. Is this something I should be concerned about?...

Why are there so many doctors out there without a clue about thyroid disorders?

and my doc said I was "normal" I knew something was wrong with me (hmmm, hair falling out, cold, sick as a dog, tired, so confused it was hard for me to drive, etc) so I bugged and bugged him, I finally had to get an endo to talk to him, found out I have Hashi's ... if I wasn't persistent, I'd be in bed right now wondering why I was so sick, he probably would have put me on Prozac thinking I was depressed. People, if your doctor says a TSH of over 3 is normal, argue, kick and scream if you have to, it may be uncomfortable and awkward, but you will thank yourself in the long run....

Thyroid problems frustrated?

o I went to see an endocrin. Test came back t4 and t3 were normal but my thyroid antibodies are elevated. She wants to see me in six months. Oh I had an ultrasound as well and results were enlarged diffusely abnormal thyroid, no discrete or dominant thyroid nodule. Anyways my frustration is I didnt have any symptoms prior going to the doctor. Now I sometimes feel like I have a lump in my throat and is hard to swollow. I am thinking this is more from anxiety because I have didnt have this prior to knowing. Am I just suppose to wait 6 months until my throid is completely distroyed? Should I just wait 6 months and see what happens or should I get a second opinion....

Why is my T4 level high when my diagnosis is Hypothyroidism?

r 5 years, now all of the sudden I am once again in a hyperthyroid state. My TSH level was 0.01 uIU/mL, my T4 was 1.72 ng/dL, and my White Blood Cell Count was 4,100 (may/may not be related). My doctor lowered my dose to 100 mcg. I think that I was under a great deal fo stress both times when the dosages needed to be lowered. When I asked why my dose needed to be lowered my doctor said that I must be making my thyroid hormone now than I was previously. Is this possible, or could their be another answer? I am not totally satisfied with my doctor's answer....

Underactive thyroid


Underactive thyroid Knowledge Base

TSH levels and underactive thyroid, what's your target?

who had their dr increase their hormone replacement to suppress TSH below 3? How do you feel, side effects etc? And if you want to say what do you take, synthroid, cytomel, other? BTW I am diagnosed Hashimoto's and am currently on 100mcg synthroid, I suspect I need more because I feel like crap all the time but am otherwise healthy. My Dr. thinks "normal is normal" so she won't raise my medicine. My TSH is 4.97....
