I've been hypothyroid since 2009, a few months ago my GP reluctantly agreed to up my meds so I'm now on 100mg of thyroxine. Despite pleading many times that I'm still experiencing all the symptoms & pain of being hypothyroid as well as putting on weight, I keep getting dismissed. I have a very careful diet, exercise 3 - 4 times a week, walk loads but the weight is creeping up as well as all the symptoms of hypothyroidism.
Recently after suffering weeks of agonising joint and bone pain, IBS, weight gain and extreme tiredness, I've been told now my Vit D levels are insufficient. I've been given an 8 week course of Vit D and told to purchase it myself afterwards. I'm not convinced the symptoms I've been experiencing are just due to lack of Vitamin D.
So I've sought out Dr Chapman who I'll be seeing tomorrow. I can't face suffering anymore and thought it's time to bite the bullet and spend the money. I'm so looking forward to being taken seriously and to, hopefully, finally getting to the bottom of this thyroid misery! Wish me luck!
