Please help in Des Moines, Iowa!!!

From: switz36 - 6 years 45 weeks ago

Feel as though I am going crazy!! I walk around with constant brain fog, irritability, confusion, weight gain, achy muscles, dry skin and brittle hair and difficulty carrying on an intellectual with people b/c I am in a loss for words.. I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism 12 yrs ago and currently taking 150mcg of synthroid. Each time I go in for blood levels to be checked the Dr ends up raising my dosage. I'm 36 years old and tired of feeling like an old lady!! Is there any safe nutritional supplement I can possible take in conjuction with my synthroid therapy to help boost up my energy levels and help make me feel better over all? My family Dr is also checking my vitamin D and iron levels, hope to have those results soon!! Like many of you,I'm just so tired of the roller coaster ride, I just want to feel human again and have enough energy for my 3 children. Also with my insurance I have to Dr with the group at Broadlawns Medical Center in Des Moines, Ia can anyone refer me to a good endocrinologist that practices at Broadlawns?? Not thrilled with my new family Dr, just don't think she has enough knowledge about my condition.
