I have been on thyroid meds for a year now. every time the meds are raised, the list of appalling symptoms gets longer - hair loss,aches and pains, huge weight gain, joint pain, the inability to think staight and the list goes on and on. I have paid a fortune to see an endo privately, and yesterday am NHS one who presumed that I eat ready meals and fast food and insisted that was the reason for me 4 stone weight gain in just under a year. So fed up I have now refused to take the drug that I believe is making me progressively more ill. Any ideas what supplements I should take? I would love to go back in 6 weeks for my next appointment and be able to prove that what I have been saying for the last year has not been a figment of my imagination. both endo's and my GP refuse to acknowledge there is a problem and I was even told that levothyroxine is a natural hormone! Of course I could not help myself, I argued the case that a synthetic drug was indeed the opposite of 'natural'. It didn't go down well, but I am so very fed up of being ignored or treated like I am an hyperchondriac....
