Saw Dr S in Birmingham 4 weeks ago and he increased my Thyroxine from 100mcg (which I had been on for years!) to 150mcg for 3 weeks, and then 175 mcg which I am on at the moment and in 2 weeks time I have to up it to 200mcg until I next see him at the end of August
So far I have had no improvement at all. I still have very painful, aching feet (!!!!!!!!!!!) and also aching hands and wrists which is a problem since I'm a secretary.
The worst part is the complete, total and utter fatigue that I have. I am always tired and am barely able to function, even when I have had 8 hours sleep. I have no social life. I am taking Vitamin D every day. My Hb & Ferritin levels are good so I know I am not anaemic. I barely have the energy to climb the stairs and get into bed !!!! I am finding it so difficult to get out of bed in the morning and go to work. Taking time off is not an option as I am on a temporary contract at work and staff cuts are happening and a much stricter sickness policy has come into force. I am on my own to can't afford to loose my job.
