    Hi Debbie
    Please tell me more. What were your symptoms at the
    onset of your diagnosis? Did it progress rapidly or
    how did it progress?
    I was diagnosed in June of this year and quite honestly
    some of the messages (yours especially) scare the tar
    out of me.
    I don’t know what lies ahead. I have a Dr’s apt.
    the end of the month, I just had blood work done today
    for that appointment.
    I was never “sick” .. it all started with a nasty
    rash (more like dry patchy skin) that spread over
    my entire body with the exception of my face.
    I was doctoring with a dermatologist for 8 months and
    had been referred to a specialist in that field.
    Their diagnosis was a sensitivity to nickel.
    I changed Drs. after some of the things he told me
    to do made no sense. The 2nd Dr. told me from day
    1 it was Thyroid. She was right. The rest is history.
    I’ve been on Tapazol since June.
    I think the worst at this point has been the emotional
    roller coaster I’ve been on although I do have vision problems.
    Some days I can’t read anything from time to time.
    I guess I wonder if I’m headed for major problems
    down the road. I don’t have the double vision many
    people experience but I’m scared of what may lie ahead.
    Please, tell me all about your symptoms and progress to where you
    are now.
    Best of luck to you, thanks for being there. Nice to know
    there are others in the same boat.
