Hypothyroidism

So I finally have a diagnosis as to why I've got a giant thyroid covered in a bunch of nodules. The good news is that one of two big nodules (one was actually large enough to be a goiter) is gone and the other one has significantly shrunk. Yay! As for the hypothyroidism, my levels weren't considered high yet, but had doubled since my appointment just 6 months ago. So that plus my other symptoms brought me to where I am. My Dr. decided to start me on a really low dose of Synthroid. I go in in 6 weeks for some additional blood work to see if the dosage is working. If it is I'm good for another 6 months. It's great to finally have some kind of answer for at least one of the crazy things that is going on with my body.
