Sunshine-thanks for everything. To reply to your question about treatment if hyperthyroidism, vim assuming this us what your RE had diagnosed you with (overactive thyroid), please see information below for medication treatments. There are are treatments fir overactive thyroid. It all depends on why the thyroid us overactive.
Antithyroid drug: A drug directed against the thyroid gland. The antithyroid drugs include carbimazole, methimazole, and propylthiouracil (PTU). These drugs are used to treat hyperthyroidism (overactivity of the thyroid gland) in order to reduce the excessive thyroid activity before surgery and to treat and maintain patients not having surgery. Carbimazole, its active metabolite methimazole, and propylthiouracil all act by inhibiting the enzyme thyroid peroxidase and in that way they block the synthesis (the production) of thyroid hormone.
This is what you are taking:
Levothyroxine (Brand names: Eltroxin, Estre, Euthyrox, Levo-T, Levotabs ...)

AFM-I am almost sure AF is here. It's so strange not to know but I've had some type if bloody discharge or spotting for such a long time it's realy hard to tell. But there is alot more of it this morning. Got up to kiss DH before he went to see his patients this morning at 5:30am, I went to the bathroom and there she was. No cramping though. However, my neck pain was so bad yesterday that one of the doctors I work with called in a muscle relaxant to my local pharmacy. I took one last night, put on a heating pad, and slept like a baby. DH said that I didn't even move the entire night. So if there was any uterine cramping last night or even this morning, I sure did not feel it. Thank God for muscle relaxers. Well, its Saturday morning, 6am. I realy should not be up so early on a Saturday morning. This weekend will be very busy for me. DS has a football game about an 45 min drive from home. We have to be there at 1pm. The game is not until 2:30pm. The game will probably finish around 4:30pm, then DD has to cheer at 5:30 pm for her football team. This means I will be at a park from about 1pm to about 8pm or so. DH said he is not going to let me be at the park for 7 hours and that he is going to stay with DD while i go home to rest. I feel really bad though. He works so hard, 7 days a week. He should stay home and rest. But he wont listen to me when it comes to this. God bless him, he is the most wonderul, caring hubby in the entire world. So to top this busy weekend off, DS has tons of Algebra homework, Language Arts homework, and Civics homework. Oh, did I mention he's in Gifted classes??? All of them! Not good for me, because I am definantely not Gifted in anything. I start teaching Sunday School tomorrow. I am hoping we can get most of the homework done before or after the game so we can go to the movies tomorrow after church. Well, going to try to go back to sleep.
