Hi, I was wondering if any one could help. I have been on thyroxine (50mg) for nearly 8 years when I was diagnosed with an under active thyriod. I was 29 then. Since then I have been ok... I do struggle with my weight, but I am not over weight. It's just trying to control it and losing it is very difficult. For the past 3 months I have been suffering from headaches, eyebrows are falling off... Feel tired all the time and sleepy in the afternoon. Legs ache... Have been suffering from constipation... Feel down ... Skin on arms are more dryer ... List goes on I had started to take higher natures thyroid supplement... But felt no better. I went and spoke to my doctor, who asked me to take a blood test. Test came back normal.. My blood count and vitamin levels are all normal. My tsh is 4.1. She has asked me to stop taking the vitamin supplement that I had started as she thinks that May have contributed to these symptoms that I'm having... But somehow I still don't feel satisfied... She has asked me to come back in 4/6 weeks to see if I feel any better ..... Oh yes now have started to experience brain fog as well... Any advise ... Feel down ... I have 4 kids... Starting to stress whether they will get this horrible disease. Thank you for reading
