I have been absent from 'our community' for some months now due to my husband being in hospital and various other pressing matters. Things are easier now but my thyroid issues have not gone away. I have a great GP who has tried everything on my behalf and I have seen a NHS endo and a private one and also Dr P. However no one has been able to help me overcome my aversion to thyroxine (which I took for five years without any problem),T3, Armour and more recently Erfa. Each one, to varying degrees gives me dreadful side effects including terrible headaches, nerve pain in my face and gums, anxiety and shaking. The effects are so much that I cannot take the medication and as a result my TSH is currently 20. It seems that I cannot have any quality of life without the medication but but cannot live with it either!! If anyone has experienced this I should like to know how they managed or if anyone has any suggestions I would be happy to try anything.
Here's hoping - Flo x
