I know I recently considered leaving but I've been thinking about stopping my meds.
The reasons for this are:
- I've been sweating a lot more which makes me think is a hyper symptom and I'm still not gaining weight despite a negative coeliac and diabetes test. Only other thing it could be is adrenal problems but I have no other symptoms which would suggest adrenal issues.
- My family haven't fully accepted I am hypothyroid and expect me to have a cheery happy expression on my face and in my voice whenever I see or talk to them in spite of how poorly I feel.
- My GP has said my TSH is high at 4.6 (0.27-4.2) but my FT4 has moved up and is in range at 15.6 (12-22), so wouldn't that mean my thyroid is working?
Also my endo's secretary has not replied to my email. I sent an email to the hospital and addressed it to her but I have not had a reply from the hospital to say this message has been passed on like before. I don't know what more I can do. Maybe phoning them is the next best option?
Is stopping my meds a bad idea and is it going to be tough restarting them? I feel like I'm living a lie with this illness despite feeling so worn down.
