Having recently moved to the Wellingborough/Kettering area I am now seeking a new NHS endocrinologist who is sympathetic/empathetic to hypothyroidism. I still suffer from the same symptoms as I did when first diagnosed despite taking 100mcg per day. In fact worse than ever. Constant hip and muscle pain, 6.5 stones heavier than I was 5 years ago and so very tired all the time. Recently diagnosed with sleep apnea too which doesn't help! Fed up with being told I'm i. The normal range so keep taking the tablets! Hair still falling out and very brittle and frizzy at the ends but oily at the scalp! Suffering with lactose and wheat intolerance and I have carpel tunnel in both wrists. I am so fed up if moaning all the time and hate to take pain killers. The diagnosis of shingles recently just put the tin lid on it all. I am now so depressed about the lack of improvement and my inability to walk further than 100 yards without needing a rest I rarely leave the house. My poor husband picks up all the slack. Help please before I become an bald, fat, moaning hermit !
