Can I have a thyroid problem even if my bloodwork was normal?
A couple years ago a doctor wanted me to get a thyroid ultrasound but I refused one because my blood work was ok. Cut to today, I am always cold, depressed, tired, and having trouble with breathing and memory. Another doctor definitely wants an ultrasound now. I’ve gained a good amount of weight, but now I can’t even lose 1 pound no matter how much I diet and exercise. My mother suffers from a thyroid condition as well. It’s so sad but I kind of want to have a thyroid problem or SOMETHING just so I can actually be treated.
I want to go to the gym and cheer up. However, I can barely drag myself out of bed in the morning.
Why would I refused an expensive ultrasound test? Because I thought it might be medically unnessary if the blood work is ok.
Oh and I do have an enlarged thyroid or a lump or something- hence the doctor wanting an ultrasound, plus my family history. Sean G. I promise you wouldn’t make it a week suffering like I’ve been suffering.
PS My previous doc wanted me to get an ultrasound PRIOR to doing any bloodwork whatsoever. So my mom stepped in and said no, you need bloodwork first.
The more I read this the more angry I get with Sean G. I’ve gone with many undiagnosed illnesses because of people and even Doctors like him who just tell us it’s all in our heads and it’s all our fault.
