My doctor's office called me today. They said my labs were not normal at all and they couldn't believe the hospital told me they were last week. My white cell count is high, my thyroid antibodies are high, my TSH is high. Everything is off. I'm waiting to hear on the thyroid sonogram I did yesterday. It hurt alot. My thyroid and the glands are killing me. The doc's office said when I come in for my appointment, which isn't for a few weeks, since they are insanely booked up, they will be giving me a thyroid hormone. And I will be fighting for Armor or any other one that has more than just T3 in it. There's a few that have T4. So basically, I'm now waiting to hear if I have thyroid cancer. Which I'm praying I don't. I don't know if anything will show on the sonogram, but it did sound like it beeped on the right side, the side that is hurting me more and the tech asked me how soon I'm going to back to the doc. It could be benign. I don't get a feeling of impending doom or anything. I'm just in pain, feel like I'm being strangled and have a fever. So, while I'm waiting to hear if I have thyroid cancer, my idiot relatives who refuse to believe our illness exists, asked me when I'll be getting off my butt and going back to school or getting a job. It's just unreal. Here I am in pain, fevered and very ill and I'm scared of what's going to happen and I'm getting asked this stupid stuff again. I swear if I was dead, they would ask my tombstone when I'll be working again. Gee, if I've been on disability for eighteen years for immune dysfunction, I seriously doubt I'll be working anytime soon. UGH! So, anyway, hospitals and docs need to stop telling people their labs are normal when they aren't. It's not right.
