Thread Name: Thyroid and allergy affecting voice
Subject: RE: Thyroid and allergy affecting voice
My thyroid is the bane of my existence. Up and down like a yo yo. It has been about 20 years and I still can't get it under control. Last year, I was misdiagnosed with thyroid cancer. Multiple trips to Mass general, Maine Med, and a local specialist - Jacqui is a saint. The dosage has gone from 25 to 125 and the tests still show me underactive. The emotional ups and downs are a bitch as well as the memory problems and weight gain.
I can't have it taken out because the swelling and cysts now involve a nerve to my vocal cords and I will likely lose or damage my ability to speak if they operate - I am in sales.
I know it is minimal compared to some of the health problems others here deal with. It's still a bitch.
