Feeling very scared by what is going on and would love some advice. Sorry to ask as I have read lots of your messages and know that there are lots of people out there with much bigger problems than mine.
I went to my GP about 6-8 weeks ago after 2 years of a very red, swollen face, eyebrows falling out and lots of extra weight. He called me the next day to say that I was subclinical hypothyroid and needed to take Levothyroxine (25mcg) and also prescribed vitamin D. I was delighted to think that this was something that would solve the problem. However, the next 6 weeks were awful and I went from not sleeping at night to sleeping all night and needing to sleep all day too! All of my symptoms got worse and others arrived. I have just increased my dose to 50 mcg and have booked into a specialist in a couple of weeks. Only 4 days in and stilI feeling very tired and too scared to eat. I have read lots of information on this amazing site (have never shared any information about anything before, so am a wee bit scared) and am slowly working out what I think I need to do/think/ask for.
If anyone has any advice I would be incredibly grateful. I live a very normal life, probably drink too many glasses of wine, eat relatively healthily apart from having the odd cigarette.
My apologies for sounding so needy, but any advice would be very valued.
Thank you in advance.x
