Hiya I'm new on here. I was diagnosed with an under active thyroid when I was 3 years old, I'm now 42 and on 100mg Levothyroxine which I take first thing in the morning. I've also been prescribed 10mg Cipralex, this helps with my anxiety and calm the IBS I sometimes get.
I work 40 plus hours a week. I was placed on a 13 hour shift yesterday, today I cannot get myself moving. I can't do my weekly shop or enjoy my days off. This is a continuous cycle. I've had to ring in to my boss and plead I cannot work tomorrow because of my 13 hour shift the following day.
My body feels heavy with muscular aches and pains. Its getting me down as I feel useless.
I have regular blood tests, take iron with vitamin C, also a fybogel each night to ensure its not constipation.
My question is, is this normal? Should I be able to work 40 hours plus a week plus run a home while on these meds or is it normal and am I generally over doing it? I'm a single woman with a teenage lad in college ;-).
All advice and opinions appreciated.
