and I keep getting more news....

As most of you know, I went to the hospital this past Sunday with chest pains, shaking, dizziness and nausea, just to name a few of the symptoms. They did some tests and thought I was getting an overdose of the Levothyroxine that I was taking for my thyroid disease or something else going on. I made an appointment with my primary care doctor and saw him yesterday. The problem was the opposite, I was not receiving enough of the medication which prompted all those things, along with Fibromyalgia. My doctor actually diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia in November of last year, but being the pig-headed, stubborn person I am, I was not going to buy into that and was definitely not going on medication for it. I was terrified. I just could not think of myself as having such a debilitating condition. I guess, I am going to have to suck it up, listen to the doctor and at least try the meds he is offering to help me. I read up on this medication, Lyrica, and am a little scared because of all the side effects it lists. Will I get them all, just one, or a few?..who knows. It it worth it? Dunno. Time will tell. My weight loss has stalled and I believe it was due to the thyroid being off because my hunger went back up and my calorie count did to! Yikes..went from 1200-1300 to 1500-1700. Today, I was able to be in better control. Here are two books that I would recommend if you suffer from Fibromyalgia or Thyroid disease. Have a wonderful day and I will keep you posted on my progress.
