Have been feeling increasingly exhausted, fogetful, dizzy, with dry hair (this last symptom is for the first time in my life; my hair has been oily all my life.) My Father had myxoedema. A blood-test said 6.5 'borderline' according to GP. I was concerned about my unusually poor state of health so GP prescribed 25mg of levothyroxine. I have taken this for about two weeks, still feeling tired. My bones have started to make 'cracking' noises which is un-nerving. It can't be osteoporosis this soon, and I don't have any of the predisposing factors for osteoporosis, but its worrying me.
I would like to try the desicated natural thyroid and to get a balanced view of my overall health which includes other problems. Have I got this right...does this bring less risk of osteoporosis?
Any suggestions for a doctor in Yorkshire or Derbyshire?
Any idea what the bone-crunching-creaking-noises are?
