Back to the drawing board...I recently had my levo upped to 100mcg after a reduction last year due to palpitations...I felt better for a little while but have in the last couple of weeks crashed..I had to leave work Sunday early as I felt dreadful..as my doctor has no understanding of thyroid related matters and failed to pick up that my underlying problem was too much T4 I was very ill last year...missed a lot of shifts and as a result went on a stage 1 warning at work.
As no doctor that I saw helped me I then went private plus paying for my own bloods..it soon showed up that I was toxic...anyway blah blah blah...so here I am again feeling completely rubbish!!!
Each shift I feel dreadful and I feel very odd inside..I don't know what that's all about but it isn't a good feeling.
In my desperation I turned to my oncologist who although doesn't specialise in the thyroid is trying to suppress the thyroid cancer from returning...she is away at present but recently suggested adding T3..hurrah!! It may not help me but I was so hopeful for this to happen!! Today I received an e mail from her clinical nurse who is acting as a go between if you like...she asked if I would be able to return to the private doctor to monitor my meds? I have explained that this is not possible..I cannot afford to do this. The nurse said she would pass my info on and will read it Monday.
I cannot post recent tests as I don't have access to them...things were improving though..my T3 was higher than it had been but probably not optimal.
I hope this all makes sense!!
If its my adrenals not working properly how will I know? I had a 24hr urine test for that but I understand saliva testing is preferable?
How do other people cope at work...unfortunately I have a very physical tiring job..I cannot get another job..I have tried countless times!! I work 6 HR shifts and feel disabled by this as I cannot work longer hours...
Thanks in anticipation.
P.s.i had a TT in 2004
