Hi all I just need some advice please
I have an underactive thyroid and am on 150 mg a day of levo and have been for a few years. I keep waking up with a thick head and feeling heady all day. I have disturbed sleep due to awful night sweats and my Dr thinks I am going through early menopause I am 44. He put me on HRT but that was 2 years ago and I can't see any difference.
My joints ache especially my thumb and I struggle to hold a pen and write for a long time.
When I go on walks or if I get hot I come over a little shaky and just not feeling well and feel I need to eat something to help me feel better. On holiday my husband had to take me out of a restaurant as I thought I was going to faint I just felt hot and strange. I felt better once I cooled down.
I also have a dull ache on my left side which I keep being told is IBS although I am not convinced.
My Dr has told me to stop taking HRT for a month and then he will do some blood tests.
Autoimmune disease is in my family and I wonder if I have something else? What tests should I make sure they take?
