Hi there. Trying to keep this brief. I am now 18 weeks pregnant. Recently diagnosed fibromyalgia. Chronic fatigue, joint pains, chronic pelvic pain, feeling cold all time, pale and washed out appearance.....needless to say on antidepressants. Felt like I had been hit by a bus since I had my son in 2012. He was born by emcs for placental abruption.
GP had checked tfts due to fatigue and in 2014 my tsh was 0.03 t4 15 t3 5.2. My most recent tsh is 0.48. Well due to extensive thyroid disease family history and my mums diagnosis of hashimotos I asked for tpo antibodies and my levels were 718. I got excited thinking there might be hope and maybe I can have thyroxine. Well no, the GP, obstetrician and endo all think my thyroid levels are fine despite hashimotos and that I need no further treatment and that there is no risk to the baby!!!!
Is there no hope for me?? I hate wasting my life in bed exhausted and its straining my marriage and has an affect on my 2 year old. Not to mentioned. The fact I have left my Job as a nurse cause I can't cope with the pace anymore.
Advice welcome please. I have bought the thyroid UK info pack and I have a list of private doctors and I am willing to go see them now. But I wonder will they avoid me because I am pregnant but surely that should be even more reason to help me. I need someone who is really proactive and informed!!
Many thanks. Xx
