I have been diagnosed with Hashimoto Thyroiditis. I am now taking 75 Thyroxine, which was slowly increased from 25 over the last 8 months.
However I am still getting problems with severe nausea, dizziness, cloudy head, migraine and pain which travels from my under my right ribs, across my left shoulder, and immense cramping and nerve pain in my groin, down my right leg. The pain is intense and I cannot lift my right leg. The only way to relieve the pain is to lay on the bed on my left side to take the pressure off my stomach (appendix and groin area) The pain is a very horse cold cramp.
This has happened so many times, and usually within a day or so after eating a thai curry. The Dizziness & Nausea seems to last for over a week after.
I am pissed of with my Doctor as when I reported this she just looked at me like I was a hypochondriac and said I should go on anti depressants as I have a long term illness. It is so frustrating this seems to be the answer to every complaint nowadays. It was the reason I got so ill with my Thyroid that I nearly went into a coma, because the Doctor kept saying take happy pills, and ignored my other symptoms I was having.
I have had a lap, and other investigation procedures, but not the one down the throat. Now because I have had these and the pain has returned its like, oh that problem again , but you have been to hospital and the pain went. Yeah so what , its now back, so what is causing it, and don't say depression to me again !
I have been fine for 5 months by avoiding foods, but I am concerned now, that I will get fobbed off again, and my pain in my appendix area and down my leg has returned, even though I thought being on the Thyroxine would stop this pain. The only reason I have not had the pain for a while is I have not had any coffee, chocolate, tea, sugar, yeast, alcohol, chilly or spices, fatty meat, cheese for over 8 months since I got ill and under investigation at hospital.
So I can only think the link is the Thai Curry or Chilli I had that has started this episode again.
My partner is convinced that I have a gall bladder issue that keeps returning after I introduce spices.
I appear to get vile coming up if I eat these types of food, so bad sometimes I can't breath and cough constantly, severe wind, then pain in my right side under my ribs. then it appears to move to my groin /appendix area, and sometime sever pain down my right leg to the point that I cannot lift my right leg at all.
Can anyone advise on this, my pain has subsided today so I can at least walk about, but I am very dizzy today and feel odd, and nauseous yet again. I can still feel tightness and pain in my lower stomach and lower back although it is bearable today, as long as I don't lift anything. My last episode lasted 6 days.
Any Help anyone ?
