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.

I went to the doctor today......?She told me that my thyroid level was very low.....What does this mean?

I have to have a thyroid ultrasound. What does all this mean?

If someone answers my question and includes a question in it, can I answer.?someone answered my question about iodine in salt and my goiter.Wanted to know if goiters are "coming back".

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?

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!

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?

What causes one person to urinate more than another?My friends and I are pretty much the same in height/weight. We ran a test by drinking 2.5 liters of water each, in a 24 hour period; no caffeine, similar amounts of food, no exercise.

What are some reasons why I might be gaining weight even though I go to the gym?I don't want wise cracks or one liners. If I eat right and exercise 45 min. a day and varied between cardio and weights, I should lose weight. I know about nutrition, etc. and have been to a dietician. I'm just wondering what are some possible other posibilities for gaining weight unnatually besides a thyroid disorder.

Anyone know anything about thyroid nodules. I have 1 thyroid gland left now I have 3 on the other one.?I had one gland removed because of a nodule now over a period of 6 months they have found 3 more nodules on my remaining gland. They want me to see a specialist. We all know what that means. The nodules don't bother me at all like my other one did. Is it really necessary to remove my remaining gland. They are benign at least the other one was.

Misdiagnosis.....do I need an attorney?Over a year ago, I went to my doctor about a chronic cough at night which sounded like I had Croupe. I had already been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and had been on medication for 2 years. He told me my cough was acid reflux and prescribed Prilosec. It didn't work. I saw him again this spring, still complaing of the cough and now wheezing along with a swollen gland. The diagnosis for the swolled gland was a viral infection. The wheezing was allergy induced asthma and the cough still acid reflux. He gave me an inhaler and told me to try a different over the counter antacid. I started retaining fluid and the cough worsened. I still have the swollen gland. I saw the nurse practioner who stated the same thing as the doctor, I'm sure after reading his notes. I finally convinced her on a 2nd visit to do an ultrasound of my thyroid. I have a nodule and now have to have a biopsy. It could be cancer, as I have all the symptoms. Should I get an attorney?

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.

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 explaim 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?

Do I have a complusive eating disorder?I'm seriously worried about my eating habits. I can't stop eating. I always feel hungry. I know that it is linked to emotional, I eat chocolate and nice food to make myself happy because nothing else does but I don't know how to stop it. Does anyone have any advice for a way to stop my chocolate cravings? something I can do to distract myself. It's driving me mad. The thing is I am gaining more weight than I should be too because I get a lot of exercise, I have been tested for thyroid but awaiting the results. I feel so fat and hideous but that makes me depressed so I eat. Any advice would be so welcome.
