Thank you for taking the time to reply. I am glad that B12 has helped you.
The GP said that he couldn't do a vit D test.
I wonder if lowish levels are because I was undiagnosed hyper for at least 4 years and most likely longer on and off whether I depleted all my vitamins. I eat plenty of meat/fish/veg. My mum has B12 absorption issues because of tummy troubles, but she takes omeprazole .It never occurred to me that (she) or I might be low on B12 until I learned more on this site researching thyroid stuff.
My symptoms are many and varied (total thyroidectomy 2011).
Fatigue being the worst, an inability to handle stress (but I tested low for DHEA -adenal hormone); nausea when I take thyroxine; weakness and shaking when experiencing stress, was craving salt, but this has gone now, but I do eat a lot of it (sodium tested low normal also (never used to like the taste), not much of an appetite, requirement for lots of sleep, tummy problems on and off, sometimes my heart does a loop the loop, but less so since I stopped taking thyroxine and stuck to T3 only, muscle cramps and joint pain. Symptoms feel very different to when I was hyper.
Also of note are weak leg muscles and a tendency to fall over (many bruises, black eyes etc. collected over the last few years).I have been doing squats and lunges most days for the last year, but it hasn't made much difference. All my muscles are weak, but I was inactive for a while following an acciedent. I thought he leg problems were back related- I am waiting for surgery, but neurosurgeon says likely not back, endo says not thyroid.
Just don't feel like me. GP says I am stressed (but not previously prone to collapsing under stress) Various hypo symptoms like dry skin, even in my ears!/ brain fog. I found it impossible to loose weight until I started the paelo diet and gave up wheat/cow dairy. It is all so complicated so I am trying to address anything that could be making me feel poorly. I looked up the supplements, but realise that they contain cobalt - I am allergic to cobalt (and nickel) showed strong positive at patch test -I wonder if I would be able to take the supplement?. I have taken multi vits in the past without problems. I saw that liver and clams have high levels of B12. Any further thoughts welcome. Many thanks Sandra
