OK...im hypothyroid.,.been since so 41, and now Im 57 and a half...
The menopause thing really ended in 2010, I was 53 and a half..
In 2009 so much stress and stuff was going on, plus menopause...my old hypo thyroid got odd too...made it seem like I was overmedicated, yet my T4 test was climbing to where it was telling my body to make more TSH..a paradox ..it climbed to almost out of range...I was also moving house at this time too, so was told about this by gp in old town, but new gp brushed it off. New gp just changed my meds every 2 months, and monitored it.
Things went up and down...then sort of stabilized, but other stuff happened then, and they thought I might have mild lupus. I don't have a gp of my own now, so its frustrating.
Im feeling ok, more energy than ive had in a while, but ran out of pills so off to rookie gp, who was good enough to also check my t4...Here we are 4 years later and my thyroid is doing it again..see following results...do they just leave it and current med? Why does it do this? still menopause stuff?
