I was diagnosed with under active thyroid in June last year and went through three months of depression, weight gain, fatigue and parched skin and hair loss.
My doctor kept telling me that my test results were within range and I should be feeling a lot better. I had to beg her to refer me to an Endocrinologist which I had to pay for and he immediately diagnosed Hashimotos and increased my levothyroxine from 25 to 100mcg.
That was September last year but I am still suffering. I wake up in the morning with s puffy face and eyes, my throat is constricted and I find it hard to take my tablet. My skin feels tight and when I brush my hair it falls out and I have bald patches. I have now put on two stone and am very depressed and become quite angry very quickly.
There are tears, joint pain, and digestive problems but I have to keep going as my doctor says I am within range so should feel normal. Does anyone with Hashimotos feel normal?
I have tried diets but nothing seems to help and the weight won't shift, can anyond advise me how I can help myself?
