I was diagnosed with autoimmune hypothyroidism about 8 years ago, although have had symptoms for as long as i can remember. Ive been on varying levels of eltroxin since. Currently I feel so bad, hair loss, no sleep, dizzy, blurred vision. I am on my highest dose of eltroxin and feel the worst I've ever felt. I have just returned from a visit to a new doctor. I had bloods taken with him on the 20th of August and today went in for results. He looked at me and said all is normal. My TSH is 4.19. When it was taken on the 15th of April, so four months ago it was 0.6. My free T4 is 18.8 and they didn't bother to test t3 as I am within normal TSH range (4.2).
He said he wouldn't change anything as I was within the normal range. I just started crying, He said "oh are you depressed"?
Damn right I'm depressed. I'm exhausted, I'm dragging myself around, I never sleep, I have bruises under my eyes, and the list goes on and on. I don't know what to do. He says There is only eltroxin in Ireland and that no other thyroid drug is available to my knowledge. I am trying gluten free but to be honest I am so worn out I don't even have the energy to shop for products. Is there anyone here in Ireland having success with any particular doctor or treatment. I can't live like this.
