Just to feedback from today. I had to have ECG as first appointment. Weight BP taken. He looked at my results and said that autoimmune thyroid disorder diagnosed in 2011. When I explained what keeps happenning he hinted at a theory that perhaps I have a mental illness which had been masked by my underactive thyroid. My thyroid is still underactive TSH usually around 5 and he did a test on my ankle which also showed that it was still underactive. Whenever I increase my dose I start to get racing thoughts, anxiety and other such symptoms associated with Bipolar. He suggested raising T4 and then treating the anxiety pharmaceutically. I said No I don't want the side effects of those and I'm not convinced there is a mental health issue underlying. Though I am prepared to process it and reseacrh if this might be true. He also wondered that I have just lived so long with untreated underactive thyroid that I am just struggling too much with the speeding up which is what T4 basically does. I have agreed to up to 75 on an extra day of the week. (curently on 50mg 6 days and 75 1 day - I can just about manage my job energy wise on that. I told him that the winters are really tough and he wondered if I have Seasonal Affective disorder. I begun to take Vit D3 in february to see if this helps for next winter. I asked him about NDT. He said that using this and people talking about this as a viable option is b######cks. That the concentration of thyoxine in any dose cannot be ascertained properly. I told him I had heard of people's experiences that they had felt better on it. He said these are anecdotal. I am going to go back in 6 weeks. I am happy that he is requesting blood tests to have a look at everything FT4 FT3 etc. So that is really good. he says that sometimes people need T3 but that he thinks my symptoms don't suggest it. Sorry its so long but i said i would share after my visit.
