Kate, I might have this wrong but from what I understand when Dr. Hernz saw the copies of my last three hypothyroid tests, the oldest one showed a number .5 something. He put me on synthroid and the next test a month or so later, it was already down to a low 2 something but he never lowered my synthroid dose.. That was a year ago. Four months ago my gyn did one and it was down to a low 1 something.
When Dr. Hernz saw that he concluded (I think I have this right) that the synthroid was causing my anxiety palpitations and maybe even some of my panic symptoms. He told me to see an endo doctor, the only one I could get an appointment with. He said to only take synthroid twice weekly instead of daily. Dr. Hernz believed because I metabolize meds so quickly (?) that two was even too much right now,
I have an appointment with the best endo doc around here in August, the first one I could get unless I go into Philadelphia to University of PA. I'd probably have to wait for an appointment there too. In the meantime, Hernz thinks is too early to lower my Xanax, being less than two weeks off the synthroid. We both agreed I'd rather deal with feeling tired and some sedation than anxiety and panicky feeling,
I know God will get me well again since he's the one that made me with this condition. (Psalm 139). He's done it before and I've learned a lot about trusting Him during this time. All things work together for good and He's doing it as we speak.
Does what I explained make sense to you, Kate? about the thyroid, I mean?
