I have had a few blood tests in the last twelve months and told I am 5.5 for one test and 11 for the other the doctor told me it was unusual something about my piturity gland and said she would try me on 25 mgs of thyroxine for a couple of months , as I am only just needing medication ,i am having a blood test next week to see if it as helped. I dont feel any better yet .
I have arthritis in most joints and have had a knee and hip replaced , over the last 4 years life as gone from bad to worse I feel terrible all the time and always in pain , shoulders knee , hands , feet , shoulders etc . I have been helped by the pain clinic with injections and pain killers but i know there is something else going on. I go from really cold to sweating all the time and feel really ill .
One thing that is really driving me mad is my voice it is very low and horse and i have trouble getting people to hear me . The doctors said it was something to do with the arthritis but reading about thyroid is seems it could be my thyroid . I have almost lost my eyebrows and my skin is really dry . I also have a really dry mouth all the time and feel so upset all the time . I really am so fedup with my life . I am also forgeting things I know I am 60 but i have always had a good memory .
Is there anyone else feeling like this and will the tablets sort me out ? Doctors dont seem to help they just want me to have my other knee replaced but i am not up to it at the moment . thanks for listening ...Alicea
