I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism 2.5 years ago, but it wasn't easy! I was given the "minimal dosage", and even when I came back and said my symptoms were not improving, the doctors looked only at the numbers and said that the med. put me in the "range"...(I Hate the Range!). This doctor wouldn't even look me in my "puffy" eyes! I have since moved, and when I took another blood test, my levels were way off, so I have had my medicine raised. My question is, I still have most of the major symptoms I started with, but I am tired of trying to find a doctor who will listen to me! How do you find the best doctor? Being new to the are I don't know anyone to ask. What do you look for, or has anyone created a criteria?
