I went the other way, hyperthyroid. My doctor wanted me to take a pill and come in 3 days later for X-rays. I did some research, turns out the pill was radioactive and could cause a thyroid storm. Nice that the doc didn't mention that. Found an natural leaning endocrinologist. Put me on tapazole and vitamins. Had a bad action to the tapazole. The dr refused to believe it was the med even though its a symptom. Once she started pushing surgery I started looking for a naturopath. Since working with this dr I have been doing better. Very slow recovery.
