so i went to my new doctors yesturday (long story but the office that told me about my thyroid was very very rude and always made me feel like i was wasting there time)..anyways i went to the new obgyn and they are AWESOME in every way possible..so i told her how the old doctor said i have thyroid problems and she told me that i should be going to my primary doctor..i didnt no that!!.the last place never said anything..so im going to make an appointment with my primary after my appointment monday (since they did another thyroid test etc)..im glad i found out though just so they can watch to make sure my meds are right..
^^I agree. I have been through countless doctors to find one that takes hypothyroidism serious. So don't ever give up if you get the cold shoulder. Keep trying. In fact, I think that link is where I found my doctor He specializes in thyroid and adrenal failure. It depends on who is taking you serious, it's very possible that your OB Gyn can handle monitoring your thyroid. I now have an OB gyn friend (not my doctor) that is an advocate for thyroid patients and she is very aware of the condition and monitoring throughout pregnancy. As long as *someone* is doing it is the key!
I've been to so many doctors I've lost count. There's been maybe 1 that I would say knows the difference between a hole and....well, you get my drift. I find the biggest problem is that the doctors don't listen to what your symptoms are. You have to be very aware of what is not right with you and how you feel. I can go in and I don't feel good but my levels are on the lower normal. Some doctors will blow me off as some kind of nut but those few doctors actually listen and treat you on how you feel. I'm hoping that the doctor I have now is a good one. He's a specialist here and has been highly recommended. I'm so tired of feeling tired all the time. So far so good though. This is the best I've felt in months.
The doctor that referred me (well, I insisted on it and she just referred me thinking I would never get an appointment) actually did nothing for me. My TSH was at 8 and she said it was because I take my medicine at night instead of the morning. She said that she wasn't going to up my dosage until I start taking it the way she wanted me to. These kind of people I hate to say, I wish this on.
