Many issues to discuss with the doc today!

I have an appointment at 3:30 today. It's weird but I'm excited. I want to know what's going on with me. Well first off, I'm hypothyroidism, last month she upped my dosage of medicine but my symptoms got worse once I started taking them. I haven't been able to go to sleep well or wake up easily, I've been sensitive to colder temps... more than usual, mood swings/emotional, and my menstrual cycle is way off, I'm almost 2 months late. Now, it is possible that I'm pregnant, and if that's the case I'm worried because during pregnancy you are supposed to do your best to keep your thyroid levels normal and well I've done all I can do I think. I've also been trying to get back into my workout routine but can't because every time I workout I get serious headaches. Not quite migraines but very painful. I want to talk to the doc about my sinus congestion also and maybe get the flu shot. So, I'm just an unhealthy person, huh? What do y'all think about all this stuff?

Hello again aconner. I left a response to one of your discussions before having read this one. You aren't unhealthy, you are just living with a condition that makes your life a crazy. I know many people who are living with health problems that would scare the bejeebers out of you. Learning to live with the condition and not let it rule your mind is key. The smile in your photo shows that you are a gentle soul. Keep smiling.
