Can anyone tell me about the disorder Hashimotos, concerning?your thyroid?

Has anyone had this before ?I am guessing I am about 1 1/2 months pregnant. My thyroid disorder always makes me about 1 1/2 to 2 months late, so this is a big guess. I have a lot of pressure down below and I just feel like I have to urinate all of the time. I am thinking that it is a bladder infection. I have an obgyn appt. on Thursday. I am really worried . Since it is Sunday, I do not have anyone to call and ask. Has anyone had this before , only being about 1 1/2 months pregnant ? How serious is a bladder infection while you are pregnant ? Should I make an appt. for tommorow, or will I be okay until Thursday ? I know its long. Thanks everyone.

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?

Jaundice Patient?Hello doctor(s),

High thyroglobulin level?Recently, I had a thyroid biopsy on my thyroid nodule and was lucky enough to find no cancer cells present. However, my thyroglobulin level is very high, 679 ng/mL compared to the normal range of 2.0 - 35 ng/mL. I know that other conidtions also cause elevated thyroglobulin level. But a level that is almost 20 times higher that normal makes me worry. Could experts on thyroid disease give me some advices? Thank you very much in advance.

What is the growth rate of a thyoid nodule?I was diagnosed with a thyroid nodule about a year ago. Since that time I have had several tests including a biopsy which came out fine. The thyroid nodule measured at 1.3 cm in Sept. 2005 when the first ultrasound was performed. I had a follow up ultrasound done today that measured it at 2.6 cm. I am taking synthroid for a underactive thyroid which should also be suppressing the growth of the nodule as well. I was just wondering if the growth rate is common or not?

Thyroid Disorder?If you have had a FreeT4 test done, how long did it take for the lab to get your results back.

I have a question about my Thyroid.?I've been going to a Dr. about my thyroid for a few years now. I have a large nodule on one side and the other side is slightly larger than it's supposed to be. He's done the dye test to check for cancer and has done several biopseys. Both come back fine. My concern is this: He's done three ultrasounds the first two came back pretty much the same, the last one showed that the size has increased slightly but the shape has changed a lot on the one side. He said he's going to do anther biopsey and ultrasound in six months. Do I need to go to another Dr? Why would he keep doing biopseys every six months?

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?

Does anyone know of any online resources for failure to thrive or growth disorder in infants?My son has been under the 3rd percentile for his weight since he was about 4 months old. He's now 15 months. I'm working with his pediatrician to try to find out the reason for this. He's on dietary supplements even (a soy "pediasure" due to diarreah/vomiting with milk products.

Those were negative but it did show that he had some sort of anemia. I'm looking for some scholastic resources that I can pass along to his doctor in the hopes that we can get him into a normal weight range. Thank you in advance for your help.

Hair Loss...Help!!?Ever since I gave birth to my daughter 7 months ago I have lost so much hair. Every time I wash and condition my hair, it just comes out like crazy. I roll it into a ball as a size of a golf ball. I wash my hair every other day and hate to too because I freak out. At first my doctor said it could be my hormones, and then when my blood work came back everything was normal, when she checked my thyroid on my 6 week check up, that was fine. What else could it be? Currently I went to GNC and bought some Biotin shampoo and conditioner and some vitamins and it's still not working. My doctor still has me on prenatal as well. The only thing that has changed is I have been diagnosed with anxiety and panic disorder....which my hair loss causes even more stress. I don't know what to do, if you have any suggestions, please help me out. I need some encouragement or some other answers.

Food feeling stuck in chest-possible thryoid cancer - something else?Hello, I don't even know where to begin. I have a thyroid nodule that has been biopsed and I am waiting for the results. I can feel the nodule when I swallow. I am so nervous that I have thryoid cancer 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?

Thyroid Disorder?If you have had a FreeT4 test done, how long did it take for the lab to get your results back.

I recently found out that I may have a thyroid disorder. Has anyone lost weight after medication?Over the last 8 or 9 months I have been gaining a little more weight than I ever have before. At about the same time my cycle got a little messed up too. I went to see my doctor and my thyroid screening came back abnormal. I have read that having thyroid problems can slow down and almost shut off a body's metabolism, so I'm thinking this would explain my recent weight problems and inability to lost the weight. I was wondering if anyone who has a thyroid problem but is on medication has had similar weight issues and after the medication was able to lose the weight? how quickly did your body's metabolism bounce back after medication? I'm not too worried about my weight and am just happy to know what is wrong with me. I was just curious if anyone has any personal experience on thyroid medication and weight loss.

5 year old with a thyroid disorder?I took my 5 year old to the doctor 2 weeks ago because she had a fever that kept popping up and was extremely tired, the doctor tested her for strep, flu, UTI, and mono..turns out it was a UTI.

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.
