I got a call back about yesterday's bloodwork. The TSH is lower at 3.6, but still higher than they like, so the Synthroid plan is still on. The prolactin is back to 20- in the normal range! That leads me to believe that it was raised due to the high TSH. But the good news is that means no MRI, and we are on for our monitored Clo.mid cycle!!! I start with my first pill tonight!
I am wondering if this horribly irritable and depressed mood that I've been in lately is due (at least in part) to my thyroid being out of whack. My worst days seemed to correlate with when my TSH was highest, and now that the levels are trending down, I am feeling better. There is so much other stuff going on right now that it definitely could have been a IF- and loss- induced emotional meltdown. But wouldn't it be crazy if these periods of extreme emotions were physically based? Just a dream, I guess.
I just want to say thank you so much for all the amazing comments and well wishes over the past couple weeks. It means so much to know that there are people out there rooting for me. And that they can understand this crazy rollercoaster. You're all amazing!
