Ok, so I've had under active thyroid for 5 years and my dose is currently 150mcg levo each day. I've had all the obvious symptoms over the years.. Weight gain... Coldness... Sometimes debilitating bouts of depression..
Was diagnosed with IBS this summer but hadn't, until now, realised that it could be connected to my thyroid.
So, before Christmas I was feeling incredibly overwhelmed at work, stressed, depressed, unbelievably exhausted and to that fact, I haven't been to work since December 19th. Had thyroid checked and it came back normal, and have now been diagnosed with SAD!!!
Anyway, to get to the point!! Went to Dr yesterday to get most recent set of blood results, TSH has gone from 0.3 in December to 4.3 even though my dosage is the same. I'm beyond exhausted, I drop my son at school and then have to sleep for 3 hours despite having had 7 hours at night.
Stupidly I've been googling my symptoms and 'adrenal fatigue' sounds like it was written about me, but I've just read on another site that it doesn't even exist!!
Please help, I want to walk into the endocrinologist ready to assert myself, get the answers I need and get myself back to work... What do I need to do/ask to get the care that I need? Thanks in advance!
