I've had hyperthyroidism since I had my son in 2005. I was relatively stable until I had my daughter in 2008 when my levo wasn't reduced before labour and we both were overdosed on it. I lost all my baby weight in a week and began getting anxiety attacks...5 years of anti depressants followed until I refused to take them anymore as I was convinced it was the levothyroxine that was giving me anxiety attacks palpitations and a general feeling of dying..I have seen an endo who says I need to take 150mgs daily of levothyroxine although this makes me feel dreadful. my scan showed 2 small nodules. I'm bored of being told I'm over reacting, I should stay on the meds and get on with it. I tried to broach armour but was told I was the Google generation and should take levothyroxine.
any ideas..any one know of alternative doctors in the edinburgh area??
thanks so much for reading.
