Hi there, really suffering at the moment. I went to Dr because I felt the thyriod problem I have had for 25years was causing me a few hiccups. Joint pain, headache, fatigue ect that was a year ago, since then I have had a tube stuck down my throat to see if I have an ulcer, before he could give pain relief. An injection in the back of my head, and an offer of blood pressure tablets to stop headaches, I now have propranolol , which I have to admit, I have not had a headache. I am still tired and gaining weight, and my shoulder and arm are still hurting. Then after a couple of days of real hard labour, (I do a lot of physical work) I woke in the night and had an irregular heartbeat which lasted a couple of days, had an ecg and was put on warfarin , but will not see a consultant until June! I then got a urine infection with white cells and blood in! Am I surprised ? My arm now is so bad that I have been diagnosed with a frozen shoulder and a tennis elbow!
I only wanted to sort my thyroxine out, and a year later I am far worse, I can't even manage to keep up with my house work, let alone all these other things that I normally do, I have horses to look after ect. I have an under active thyriod. When diagnosed all those years ago it was difficult as the test came back borderline so I was told, but showed up later in a antibodies test. I do not understand all your comments about T3 and all that, it is beyond my knowledge , and I am in so much pain that my brain cells are becoming cloudy. Can anyone make a sensible suggestion as a way forward for me?
