Determining conception dates?Okay, I tried for 10 years to have a baby. I have thyroid disorder, and a couple of uterine complications, as it turns out. I ended up pregnant very much by surprise...I am estimated to be 14 weeks on Wednesday. Here is where I am confused though....It is said by doctor that baby was conceived in August...Here is the basic facts about August for me....I only had sex on two days in August, on Aug 4th and Aug 21. I had a strange, early period on Aug 9 that only lasted for 3 days. (Normal for me is 7 days). I have been told possibly conceived baby on the 4th not the 21st, as would be more likely. How does this work? How is this possible? What would be the chances baby was conceived prior to the early period? And what is the accuracy that the doctor could possibly know for sure? Have had two ultrasounds, and they still question it...Any way to know for certain?

Bipolar Disorder? General doc. made new diagnosis without telling me?I have bipolar disorder. I sometimes hear voices when I'm manic or depressed. I haven't been manic or depressed lately, pretty stable. Two weeks ago, I had a visual hallucination. I saw maggots 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?

What do you do for restless leg syndrome and periodic limb movement disorder. Also have Fibromyalgia.?I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 11 years ago. Prior to that I was diagnosed with Hashmotos hypothyroidism, an auto-immune disease attacking the thyroid. 3 years ago, when trying to DC a med for Fibromyalgia, I learned that I had developed Essential Tremors. Now I've moved on to Restless Leg and Periodic Limb movement disorder. I'm dealing with the central nervous system here, and wonder if I don't have Chronic Lyme, although all tests have been negative. I grew up in the woods of a lyme infested area of PA. I'm dealing with it all, but the lack of sleep associated with Fibromyalgia and the waking from periodic limb movement disorder and minor Sleep Apnea are reaking havoc with my life. Anybody out there dealing with the same mess? I'm all ears.

Problems gaining weight?Sorry but this is more of an answer. I read a post about someone having problems gaining weight, and one of the replies was 'be lucky you have that kind of a body". I just wanted to say that I also struggle to gain weight, and it's an embarrassing thing, being thin and having people look at you like you have an eating disorder. I have done a lot of research on this issue and talked to my physician, and found that the best way to gain weight is to simply increase your calorie intake by about 500 calories per day, and do weight training to build muscle. It's actually very unhealthy to be underweight, just as it to be overweight. It can cause serious health problems. So if anyone has this problem, maybe talk to your doctor first it could be a thyroid problem. Just thought I'd comment, sorry that it's not a question.

A question about thyroid nodule?During an ultrasound of my thyroid a small pea-sized "thyroid nodule" was found, but blood tests showed my thyroid is functioning fine. The doctor did not tell me whether it appears to be a 'hot' or 'cold' nodule -- though I read ultrasound can tell that. Anyways I am being sent to the specialist, probably for the needle thing. Can anyone who knows about this give me any insight? My age is 22.

Is my Doctor putting my Thyroid condition off?I have hypothyroidism with flare ups of Hashimotos disease(swelling of glands extremly tired difficulty swallowing colds and flu like symptoms) My Dr. is telling me to come off my birthcontrol pills because of the hormones and have my tubes tied, then return in 4 months to discuss the removal of my thyroid, He is a specialists and is the second one I have seen, the first one did nothing, I have had nodules biopsied and the results came back inconclusive, I am scared he didn't want to do any more needle biopsys because only 1 in 100,000 people have thyroid cancer and I wouldn't be one of them he said. I have had this condition since I was 14 and I am 35 now I also have hudreds of tiny tiny nodules around the thyroid. Should things be moving a little quicker then this?

THYROID test results *** need help understanding?I recently went in for a physical and due to an enlarged thyroid my doc suggested a thyroid ultrascan and a TSH blood test. The scan found some nodules in my thyroid and the blood test found my TSH levels to be high. (some websites say that it can be up to 5 and still be normal, but my test results said 0.34-2.50 UIU/mL were normal range) My result was 2.53. He explained that having a high TSH level means that my thyroid is producing the hormones but the nodules were more than likely blocking them from being released and that was the explanation for the high result (that's how I understood it at least) I do have an appointment this week to take a little pill and 24 hours later go in for another scan of the thyroid and to determine what needs to be done with the nodules. But here's my question...

What do I do?I have stayed in touch with a friend of mine since junior high.We were always close but over the years we difted apart,hardly have anything in common and the only reason we still talk is because we have known each other for so long.I haven't seen her in over a year since her and her husband moved and hour and half away.Recently she has started calling me more and more and wants to make plans to hang out again but more on her terms instead of meeting halfway or coming to my town.She has also found out that she might have thyroid cancer and a degerative muscle disorder.The real reason for the delima is I ran into a guy we use to hang out with who told me he stopped talking to her when he found out about the dogs.He was shocked that I didn't know.As far as what she was doing with the dogs use your imagantion and I am not joking.I always knew she was a freak but never thought she would go that far.Should I confront her or just stop talking to her?

What is the name of a blood disorder that starts with a T?My best friend's mother in law just had a mini-stroke last night. They just found out that she has some blood disorder that starts with a T, noone seems to remember what the name was and I wanted to do some more research on it. Basically it has something to do with her white blood cells and because of it, she has to have at least 2 blood transfusions and with her thyroid disease and heart murmur, they give her a 10% maximum chance of surviving after they do the transfusions and put a stint in her heart. Anyways, I just need to know the name of a blood disorder that starts with a T so I can do some research on it for my friend so she and her husband can know a little more about what it is. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
