I have had thyroid cancer and hyperthyroid. It tools years to stabilize but all is well for now.
Hi Dianne I am from BC. I have multiple nodules but one large one on one side of my thyroid. I go in on Tuesday for a biopsy. I find I am even more exhausted since this all started than I was before.
Hi Diane, Want to Wish you a Happy Birthday.
I have added you to my team and want to welcome you to this site. You will find the people here are awesome. They share their stories and if they find something that helps with the fibromyalgia they let the rest of us know.
Fibromyalgia attacks us in so many ways, pain throughout our bodies, causes depression, anxiety. A lot of us have other conditions such as lupus, thyroid, asthma, heart conditions, diabetes and a multitude of other diseases on top of fibromyalgia.
I have hypothyroidism (low thyroid function) and take pills to bring levels up.
What kind of problems are you having with your thyroid? Has it been weight loss or weight gain? Have you got energy galore or none at all? Depending on whether you have hyperthyroidism (high) or hypothyroidism (low) you will have various problems. You can be tested through your family doctor and he may recommend a specialist for you to see to educate you on what you have and the best treatment for it. Whether it is high or low you have to have blood tests done on regular basis. Could be every 3 - 6 months depending on how your doctor feels you are doing. If just diagnosed they will probably monitor a little more closely to make sure they have the right dosage of medication for you.
Hope this is of some help to you. Please feel free to contact me and others on this site who have thyroid problems. We will share what we know about it with you.
Sending warm healing gentle hugs your way xoxo
