I went to my Doctor about 2 years ago with tremors and rapid weight loss. I asked him regularly why i was loosing weight so easy when I could never do it before, his reply was maybe your metabolism is finally kicking in. i believed him because he was my doctor. About 6 months later I went in to see him again because my hands wouldn't stop shaking. He asked what was going on in my life and i told him. he put me on Zoloft for depression. He never took a blood test he just assumed it was depression. I went to a new doctor when I moved because my eyes were bulging he grabbed my throat and ordered a blood test. My thyroid levels were way high. He my thyroid is 5 times the size it needs to be and he suggests removal. My question is Could this have been more controlable had the doctor taken a blood test in the first place instead of just thinking mental first? I have been on beta blockers, and all kinds of medications from this and nothing is working. They've even doubled my doses to get my levels down and still nothing. My heart palputations and blood pressure and tremors are really driving me insane. It's like i've lost complete control of my body. Please help me.
