i have posted a few questions here but i still havent feel like telling my story . i will right it in a blog. I was diagnosed after severe joint paint in my shoulders back and legs that was unbeareable, i felt cold and tired, i new something was on as i always been vey active. The only diagnosis was depression in 2010 in spain as i had to go back to my family t be looked after. I always checked my thyroid as my sister has hashimotos and my mum as well but her story is following years of depression. There was nothing no presense of antibodys (TPO) or TGI until august 2011 when i had TPO normal and TGI 100'2 UI7ml (0-4.11).
I was put on a trial of 25 thryroine and diagnose with initial autoinmune thyroditis but i was already on antidepressants. I tried to give them up twice but i feel terrible.I went to see DR skinner who increased my thryroxine and decreased my antidepressants. two months after finishing them i started to feel pain and depressed as i was decreasing them i feel myslef following into the no motivation and antisocial corner.
A week ago i had to decide to be back on the citalopram i am currency on 15mg to be revised i used to be very well on them when i was on 30mg. it helped me with the pain i hardly noticed it and fell well but never 100 %. i was doing my normal live and sometimes i even went back to dancing. I used to dance.
AT the moment i am on 100 of thyroxine and i dont know if i am having too much or not,
I have decided to take the matters and investigate why i started to feel like this when i was a very healthy person and i dont seem to be able to leave the antidepressants.
i have done a saliva test that is being posted tomorrow. the B12 i had it done recently in the NHS. Are those valid or i have to do the Active B12 Test i the private.
My results are 378ng/l(180-900). I have bought B12 , methyl B12.5000mcg. Can someone tell me how much i should have and when to take the supplement. i take my levo at night.
The next one i have got is the vitamin D from the place recomended here. The test come back as Insufficiency:
Total Vitamin D :48.7nmol/L
the flyeer says that to be adequate it has to be over 50. Can anyone tell me how i can suplement this.
i dont know what to do in terms if going forward with my research. i dont know if i have antibodys now.should they be test it. or if i have a conversion problem.
also it is say that fo people with autoinmune thyroiditis is not good armour as the thyroid things is your thyroid and start attacking it. i dont know if i benefit friom T3. but with the antidepressants i dont know what do , i am inly 34 and i will like to get this sorted.
any help comments will be lovely
