:( I AM A 52 YEAR OLD WOMAN,TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT~I RECENTLY HAD 2 TUMORS REMOVED FROM MY LEFT THYROID ALONG WITH MY LEFT THYROID. ONE TUMOR SHOWED .05 MIL. OF CANCER. MY DR. SAID IT HAD NOT GOT IN MY BLOODSTREAM OR ESCAPED INTO MY SYSTEM. HE STARTED ME ON 25 MG OF SYNTHROID BECAUSE HE SAID MY BLOOD WORK SHOWED MY RIGHT THYROID WAS NOT PRODUCEING ENOUGH . SINCE TAKING THE SYNTHROID, I HAVE BEEN REALLY SICK~ MY BODY FEELS AWFUL~~I FEEL LIKE I'M DYING! ALONG WITH THE 25 MG OF SYNTHROID,I TAKE.625 MG OF PREMARIN,KLONIPIN 10 MG AND I HAVE BEEN ON A STRICT LOW CAL.,LOW CARB DIET~~EATING ONLY LEAN CUSINE FROZEN ENTRES SINCE 03/16/06~TAKING LASIX 20 MG PHENTERMINE 37.5MG, AMINO ACIDS 3 TIMES A DAY AND TAKING A B-12 SHOT EVER 2 WKS. I ALSO HAVE BEEN ON SULFTMP-DS 800/160 MP FOR WHAT THE DR THINKS IS A BLADDER INFECTION ,I'VE BEEN ON IT FOR 5 DAYS. I CONSTANTLY FEEL LIKE MY BLADDER IS FULL~WHEN I GO TO THE BATHROOM,I HAVE TO FORCE SMALL AMOUNTS OF URINE OUT. WITHIN MINS. I HAVE A LOT OF PRESSURE ON MY STOMACHE AGAIN! I DRINK MY 8 GLASSES OF WATER A DAY. THIS IS 1 PROBLEM~~I HAVE NO ENERGY,I'M SORE ALL OVER~~MY MUCLES FEEL BRUISED,THE OTHER NIGHT I COULDN'T SIT OR STAND I WAS IN EXTREME PAIN FROM MY LOWER LEFT SIDE OF MY BACK GOING DOWN UNTO MY LEFT HIP. I'M SICK AT MY STOMACHE,DIZZY AND MY MOUTH HAS EXCESS WATER IN IT. I AM CONSTANTLY HAVING TO SPIT IT OUT.I FEEL HOT AND THEN COLD. I KNOW IT'S NOT SIGNS OF MENOPAUSE BECAUSE I HAD A COMPLETE HYSTRECTOMY WHEN I WAS 30 AND I'VE BEEN ON ESTROGENE EVER SINCE. I FEEL LIFELESS. WHEN I TALK TO A DR ABOUT THIS,THEY THINK IT'S DEPRESSION AND WANT ME TO TAKE ANT-DEPRESSION MEDS.I ALREADY TAKE KLONIPIN FOR PANIC ATTACKS,I DO NOT WANT TO TAKE MORE MEDS.CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME? IS MY MEDS.INTERACTING AGAINST EACH OTHER CAUSING MY BODY TO GO HAYWIRE? I STOPPED THE DIET MEDS 1 WEEK BEFORE MY OPERATION, WHICH WAS 06/28/06 AND STARTED THEM BACK LAST WEEK. I'M STILL EATING ONLY THE LEAN CUSINE FOOD.I NEVER WENT OFF THEM. SORRY THIS WAS SO LONG BUT I FELT IT WAS EASIER WRITING MY SYPTOMS DOWN INSTEAD OF TRYING TO TELL A DR AND HAVE HIM LOOK AT ME LIKE I'M CRAZY! THANKS FOR ANY HELP OR ADVICE!:confused:

  • I would try and find a new doctor, it is not depression. Could be chronic pain. Have you been tested for diabetes?

  • Definitely get a new doctor, pronto! That was some lazy diagnostic work, if I ever heard some. BTW and not to be intrusive, but the Lean Cuisine diet doesn't sound like the best idea right now with everything your body is going through. Those meals are high in salt and just not real, whole food. Every now and then is okay if you're in a hurry, of course, or tired. Do you have a Whole Foods nearby where you can get something better for you that is prepared? Is there some reason you can't anything else? Diet can have a huge effect on your well-being. Huge. High protein diets with no fiber/whole grain and fresh fruit and vegetables can make one feel terrible. If you're trying to lose weight, the best and healthiest diet I've seen is the worst named "The Fat Flush Diet." (Or something like that.) It's restrictive at first and requires some prep work with protein powders, vitamins and pure/no sugar added cranberry juice purchases, but you will feel great.All the best.
