Hello. I have a dilemma! I keep pondering which way to go next so some advice would be appreciated.
A quick rundown of my situation. I had lots of problems and after many years discovered lumps all over thyroid. It was removed. Thyroxine worked fine for 3 months and I felt well. Then, like a switch being flicked...it stopped working. It was like putting wrong petrol in the car! To cut my story down...I went along to Dr S who helped me enormously. He put me on Erfa thyroid and I started to return to 'normal'. Now three years on...my only remaining problem is...breathlessness. To a point where it is greatly impacting my life. I have always kept fit, even through my worst times when I gained 4 stone. It is something I've always done. But now, walking up a flight of stairs has me gasping for air.
I asked the question on here a while ago, whether anyone else had this problem and it turns out to be quite common amongst us thyroid challenged people! I hadn't linked it to the thyroid before. But I should have done because it only became a problem after all the problems started.
So..I am so nearly 100% and I am still trying to get there! My problem is do I need to make an appointment with a new endo, (I asked that question here too and have a few suggestions) or Dr Peatfield( I think!) in Crawley, who is a nutritionist? I think someone said I lack vitamins etc which is what's confusing me. If they cost the same money...which would serve me best??
Any advice welcome. I've got to 90% because of these forums over the years!
