me too (insert moo sound). its fustrating, and a dozen other emotions. Then to add trouble to the mix durign certain segments of my menstral cycle I CRAVE sugar.
How is your cycle? Mine isn't much fun as I have days of runaway anxiety and days of severe brain fogginess. Theyroid sure makes it hard. Once I identified that THAT was causing my weirdness every month I learned to work around it. (ie: I learned day 16 of cycle I get breain foggy, I avoid detail oriented work then, I found out day 20 I got psychotic so I do extra stress reduction measures then etc)
I actually don't have my period. It's really strange. Last time I had it was probably April. It's been like this since I've started. I've gone years without having one before. You have a 16 day menstrual cycle?
I get crazy mood sings all of the time. I'll be happy about something then angry about it ten seconds later.
My grandmother and my cousin and myself has/had Grave's. My sister and my father have Lupus, also an autoimmune. Endocrinologist asked if there was anyone in my family with any autoimmune diseases. 2009 I went to the dr suffering from what I thought was depression and fatigue with nervousness.He never told me I was hypo. Dr did nothing cuz it was mild and never told me. He also gave me Ativan cuz I was having panic attacks and was on the floor clutching my chest. A few months later my husband said your hands shake like crazy. I could not hold anything without looking like an addict.lol Went to the dr in Feb of 2010 for strep and he said my thyroid was enlarged. I had been losing weight but slowly and under a lot of stress. My bloodwork came back 4.3 T4 and TSH was .24. They talked about putting me in the hospital. Didnt need to. Now a year later and I think I'm hypo. I do not want my thyroid out unless it's cancerous. Having blood work done next week....past feb my TSH was .004 and t4 was good. It all sucks!!!
