Another Early Start...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Blame it on my appointments. Today is not as early as the previous appointments though. My doctor's earliest appointment starts at 8 AM so that's as early as we can get in.
I had some blood work done last week and I was kinda' excited to hear what the doctor has to say about the results. I got a copy of the results in the mail and there's a big difference between this result and the one I had before it which was about 2 months ago. The result of 2 months ago made my doctor increase the dosage of the medication I'm on because there was not a lot of improvement in my thyroid problem. Well, this latest result is showing otherwise. It seems I'm over medicated now because the 'hyper' turned into 'hypo', well, kinda'.
I still have hyperthyroidism. The doctor put me back to the original dosage because my thyroid is not producing enough hormones now [I think]. This explains why I am always tired the last few weeks. He even said that my weight gain is probably because of that as well....not the food I've been stuffing my mouth?? Hahaha....nah. It's true though...I gained a few pounds since the last time I was in his office, so yeah, blame the weight gain on the meds, ok?
That's good news because it 'can' mean that my situation is reversible and I may not be on medication for life. Keeping my fingers crossed, of course. At least I know the medication is working now unlike the last time I came in.
For now, I'm still under observation. I still need more blood work done in a few months then back to the doctor again. It's been 6 months since I was first diagnosed with this problem. Hopefully, I'll be off the meds as soon as possible.
