I had a ok day yesterday and realise I did too much (well a lot more than Iv'e done for months) did a little cleaning and made supper. I am paying the price physically and mentally today.I am now even more convinced that it is a conversion and maybe deficiency of vitamins/iron..
My son has told me to get info on what blood tests I need and he will use his university overdraft. Bless him
I have bought in the past a few vitamins but they sit in a bag as I have just been so down to even take them out of the bag and try make myself attempt to develop a plan.
I don't have much if any reserve and and have said to my son that I will ask advice and we can see if after the tests I can gain some strength. As mentioned before GP is a no go.
150/175 mg levothyroxine alternate days. Which I still believe strongly is causing my stomach and chronic muscle joint pains
1 x Lanzoprazole per day
ibuprofen gel as required
Was on coedine phosphate and docusate but GP has extended my monthly allowance from monthly - 2 monthly and now codeine 6 monthly and docusate - 11 months time.
To be honest the way they are treating me I feel like just posting the prescription for levo .back to them as they make my pain worse and worsen my constipation. But suppose that they would probably just section me.
So any help/advice on blood tests would be appreciated .
Sure I have adrenal issues as physicaly and mentally I have no reserve and when the physical extreme fatigue hits me the mental/emotional fatigue. hits at the same time and I seem to shut down. I don't go out but if like yesterday I did a little at home I get exhausted. Any Mentally or physical distress exhausts me and my mood suffers even with tiny amounts of stress like a phone bill through the post. Iv'e posted recently in detail so I know what is causing my problems but need help please to try and improve even a little as I have a lot of distress to come. I occasionaly get upper mid back internal .
I have stomach problems worsened I think from previous ibuprofen use.which I stopped after bringing up mouthfulls of bile. so maybe that is one reason for possible non conversion. sometimes I get terrible upper stomach lower chest pain which takes my breath away and I cannot do anything other than breath deeper and pace the room. also I gripping/burning throat/jaw and tooth pain.at the same time. This may be I think when I am under daily distress when it happens now. It last for anywhere from 10- 20minutes sometimes.
My B12 and Red cell are a few points above minimum range (6 weeks ago0.
Vit D below range (6 weeks ago)
TSH 0.75 (that was 6 weeks ago on 175mg) but the psychiatrist said to maybe drop back to 150mg as 1 had improvement in brain fog but worsening body/muscle pain and stomach pain.
I haven't eaten properly for months and have gone days without eating.
I have promised my son I will be honest on here and get as much advice as I can
So can anyone offer me advice please on what tests to have and a link to the lab page..
