I was diagnosed hypothyroid after the birth of my 2nd child in 2008. Since then I have largely stuck my head in the sand and so consequently I still feel completely uneducated with regard to the condition. Its all so confusing! My GP seemed uninterested/lacking in knowledge and when I got a referral to Endo the doc there seemed guarded and vague as to the treatment of my symptoms - which are terrible bowel problems (diarrhoea, bloatedness, cramps), fatigue, achy joints, deteriorating eyesight to name a few!
I would really like to know if my symptoms are related to my hypothyroid but don't seem to be able to get the answers to this. I take 100mcg Levo and 20mcg Lio daily. How do I know if this is the right medication for me? It sure doesnt feel like it is! How do I find out what tests I should be asking for and what I can be doing to help my symptoms (e.g: diet). I feel completely stuck in a cycle of not 'not knowing what I don't know' - if that makes any sense at all! THANK YOU for reading x
