Will try to look at that with next blood test.
I would have to say the brain fog and hating life probably started years ago, just didn't notice since it was so gradual. I just chalked it up to growing up and having responsibilities wear you down. As far as I know I've not had a blow to the head or whiplash. However the car I was driving was hit from the side back in December. I wasn't even sore the next day so I didn't think anything of it until now.
Nope, but they might be tomorrow morning!
I had asked for them to do my estrogen levels, but I guess that got lost in the mix. Will ask for the next time. ...I think my GP is just worried about insurance paying for it or not. I don't think he's used to federal employee's plans.
Nope, skin still looks/feels normal. No headaches or vision issues that I can tell.
I think I use iodized salt a lot in my cooking (gotta season that stuff). ...I also eat a lot of mushrooms, which are supposed to be high in selenium right? Other then that I don't take iodine/selenium supplements. I will look into buying some tomorrow after the doctor's visit.
Concerning the thyroid sticky (which I've read several times and thank you so much for putting in so much work and helping out so many others), I didn't really think the stress, etc seem to fit me. I will have my temp in the morning and if low I'll have the doc test for rT3 the next time I get tested.
Labs are about a week old. The balls started hurting probably this week or so, kind of snuck up on me. ...I have been getting varicose vein treatments lately, so perhaps there has been a change of bloodflow/pressure? I will check with GP.
Also, I just realized I have a habit of massaging my neck with my hand in an effort to release my scalenes, has repeated palpitations ever been known to irritate a thyroid?
