Walmart/Target: Walmart and target sell thyroid medication for $4 a month. Even if it is a low dose, some thyroid replacement is better than none. If you can find a free clinic, you should also ask if the doctor can help you obtain the medicine at a reduced or no cost through a drug company. Many drug companies provide patient assistance.

I am 57 yrs m, diabetic for 20yrs, suffering wt.Loss, thyroid ths up, occult blood in stool let me know the cause of wt.Loss/occult blood.

It's my job to worry: Because I have to think, "what's the worst thing this could be?" i feel it's important to encourage you to see a gastroenterologist to find out where the blood in the stool is coming from. Bleeding from the bowel and weight loss can go along with cancer, so don't put this off. It sounds like your thyroid needs attention. If your TSH is high, your thyroid isn't putting out enough thyroid hormone. ...Read more

It can be episodic, responding to a course of treatment only to recur again months to years later. You should have a GI specialist you see regularly.

Gi workup=no ibd/celiac. Pain, bloody stool, fevers persist. Fingers clubbing. Bipolar ii; 2 yr sober; mentally doing great, but could physical problems be somatiform disorder? Sick of feeling sick.

Gi workup=no ibd/celiac. Pain, bloody stool, fevers persist. Fingers clubbing. Bipolar ii; 2 yr sober; mentally doing great, but could physical problems be somatiform disorder? Sick of feeling sick.

Unlikely but...: Possibly, but just because your docs haven't found the cause does not mean it's all in your head. It's not unusual for docs to have difficulty finding the cause of GI problems. You may well have food sensitivities (most with gluten sensitivity don't have celiac) ;/or parasites- common ; not easy to diagnose. You might have overgrowth of unfriendly flora- again hard to diagnose. See my comment:. ...Read more
