Hi all, am desperately needing some advice I hope you can excuse the long post i was eventually diagnosed with an under active thyroid in Feb of this year, have been struggling with my health for nearly 6 years but always been told it's in my head and have some anti depressants!!! I then was perscribed Levothyroxine which I couldn't tolerate and my GP didn't really know what to do😒 so I decided to take myself off to see Dr SB and see if she could help me.. Hashimoto's thyroiditis and under active thyroid is her diagnosis.. She gave me a prescription for Naturthroid starting at a quarter grain and then increase it a month later to half a grain etc etc
I then had my bloods done again and she found that my wonderful gp hadn't even done my vitamin D and that showed that I basically had no Vit D in my body at all reading below 20...so I went on 50,000 units for 6 days and now on 800 units for a maintenance dose.
I thought everything was going ok then all of a sudden I had my hair bleach put on as usual every 6 weeks and I immediately seemed to have a reaction to it and that has never happened before I had horrible feelings in my head, especially behind my ears and in front of my ears nr earlobes and just above also a very tender scalp..and cold feeling down the side if my head too. I thought maybe an allergic reaction but this went on for nearly 5 weeks! I then saw Dr SB who perscribed me some prednisolone 6 tablets for 5 days... I took these and ever since I have now got a shakiness feeling inside that won't go away, it seems to get worse mid morning and my heart has started racing again 😁 also i can hardly walk very far now, my muscles just don't want to work and I can't seem to hang more than two items of clothing on the line before the same happens in the tops of my arms and shoulders!
The shaky wobbly feeling is extremely scary, I have emailed Dr SB and asked if it could be the Naturthroid but she says she doesn't know and has told me to stop them and see what happens! Been to my GP and as my TSH has come down below the 5 now they say I'm normal (ha ha)
My results taken on the 29/4/15 were
But this blood test was done at 3.25pm as my gp couldn't get me an appointment for 5 weeks if I didn't get it done then!
Previous result on 24/3/15
Serum thyroid per oxidase antibody= 1000
Am worried as I'm not on any thyroid meds at the min and frightened all my other symptoms are going to come back on top of all this that's now happening to me 😓
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
