I had a total about 3 years ago and the left lobe taken out in 1990. Went to a doctor in New York (I am thinking doctors are not into the thyroid ) who stated I must have had cancer because it was a cold nodule. Stupid man had me worried for a while when I did some thinking about it and my doctors then never stated that I had cancer and then why am I alive today? Stupid Stupid Stupid so now I am in Florida and looking again for a smart doctor (preferrably a female ) and I am in the 60's of age so I have taken Armour Thyroid for a long time and insist on it because it is a natural. The only reason the doctors are putting anyone on the synthetic kind is for a kickback from the drug companies. And did you know that your blood pressure goes up in higher elevations? I lived in Colorado for a long time and was on medication to bring it down when all I really needed was to go to a lower elevation. But then the md would not get his kickback so find one that will prescribe the natural stuff and it will take about 3 years (sorry maybe you will be different) for the fog to lift and you will feel normal. But get off the synthetic crap!!!!View Thread
