My pain started on September, 20, 2016. After two rays, the diagnosis was disc disease. After two prescriptions were unsuccessful with relieving the pain in my lower right, lower pelvic area I had a visit to the emergency room. Same diagnosis after their x-rays and two more prescriptions, including a pain killer. Still did not found any relief so I paid for my own MRI. That showed ovarian cysts and now I am waiting again for a doctor visit. My pain has gotten exceedingly worse as time goes on. Someday, I cannot walk or bend because it stiffens me up so painfully. Nothing working yet.

I forced my doctor to test all of my T3, T4 and my antibodies. I have Graves' disease which later became Hashimoto's disease. I took myself off methimazole and asked for levothyroxine. They put me on a small dose and the ovarian cyst shrunk immediately. I want to get on a higher dose of levothyroxine to shrink the left now. Gonad pituitary axis, along with the hypothalamus, GnRH, everything needs to be examined. We will discover much.
