I live in Sweden. I just moved here and have been so sick for the last 6 months. The doctors here are uninterested in my prior history and treatment of Hashimoto's and provide T4. I was told yesterday that perhaps it is all in my head and I just need anti depressants and therapy. I was also told that I need to consider all my prior treatments were wrong despite the fact that I felt better and could function. My hair is falling out, my skin is dry and cracked, I sleep 14 -16 hours a day, I have terrible headaches and I vomit upon waking each morning. At times, I also vomit throughout the day. I am forgetting things and just feel like I have the flu at all times. I have no life right now.
I am desperate to find an endocrinologist who is willing to listen to the patient and who treats the whole patient and is not just stuck on the numbers on the page. I would love to find someone who prescribes natural dessicated thyroid. I am willing to travel to the UK and pay out of pocket.
