10 months ago, I was admitted to hospital with breathing difficulties, and was on oxygen for over 2 weeks. That basically was the start of my nightmare, as i never seemed to recover,I only developed new symptoms. Chronic fatigue (I literally slept for 18hrs a day) , I was ever so cold, even with 100 layers of clothing on, and just by chance 1 day, I was seen by an endocrinologist at a hospital appointment. He did some bloods & it showed my tsh was 101.5, t4 0.3 & t3 0.7. Ferratin levels were 6. The doctors exact words to me were "No wonder,you feel so shitty, it's as if you have no thyroid at all. He started me on 100mg of Eltroxin, with no effect after 2 weeks on bloods, he has been gradually up'ing the dose every 3/4 weeks & I'm currently on 275mg. For my Iron levels, I'm on iron injections every 2 weeks & take 50mg orally everyday ( which is also not absorbing into my body) . In the mean time, I've developed, every symptom that goes with an under active thyroid apart from hair loss & depression. And it has damaged my heart along the way, but cardiology won't touch me, until my thyroid is under control. I must add, I have been tested for coeliac disease which was negative & have taken Eltroxin at different times of the day to see if that helps with absorbency of the drug, but nothing seems to work. My endo did stop Eltroxin 4 weeks ago to go down the route of trying to kickstart my t3, but I had an awful reaction to the drug, so back on eltroxin I had to go. I really am at the end of my tether at this stage, with 4 children & a husband, I just want to get back to the "old me". I must also point out, I do also have the genetic blood disorder mthfr,& I am 36 yrs old. I would really REALLY appreciate any advice at this point. Thanks for listening.
