Hi All
well had app at doctors this morning and began my treatment for my underactive thyroid i just hope it starts to kick in soon been ill for weeks now thats more smarties ive to take for the rest of my life skull .
As for the crohns well do you recall me saying to you that my doctor wrote a letter to my consultant to discuss the problems i had been having with the ward,and generally my health with being on the methotrexate well i could not attend last weeks appointment for my crohns so the doctor is going to write another letter to him asking if it would be possible for me to start oral methotrexate as it would be much suitable for me since i have other issues to deal with in my life.
Why do people in authority take so long in replying!!!!!!!!!!All in all ive not been on treatment for my crohns since december at the moment im being really careful with what i eat ensuring i dont have any flare ups if i dont see my consultant before my next appointment which is the 8/4/08 ill tread with caution
just 1 more illnesses to add to my list
3.migraine attacks
4.heavy periods
5.underactive thyroid
i guess im not the worst lol

I also have underactive thyroid (started out as overactive) and it's really very easy to treat and keep under control, compared to Crohn's and everything else most of us have. Yes, it's one more medication to take and one more thing to have checked a few times a year, but, in my opinion, it's nothing to stress over, compared to everything else we go through. If you end up having to have part of your thyroid removed, of course, that isn't any fun but, if it's like mine, you just take something once a day and occasionally have it checked. I have noticed that changing Crohn's medications can throw off the thyroid levels so, anytime you make a major medication change, you may want to have your thyroid checked again. We just had to decrease my Synthroid due to changing from Remicade to Cimzia. So, don't let this stress you too much. Hope you get everything else worked out quickly and don't have any problems in the meantime.
...rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverence; perseverence, character; and character, hope.   Romans 5:3-4
