I've been on synthroid since April. The endocrinologist changed it from 1 to .88 in early August. She then added 50000 ui vitamin d a week. I have idiopathic hypersomnia n take 200mg provigil twice a day and supplement with caffeine pills as needed. I also take 100 mg of trazadone to help me stay asleep at night. I get at least 8 h of sleep per night, much more on weekends.
Lately I am feeling ridiculously exhausted. When I sit it feels like my body slows down to an asleep level. When I move I get out of breath quickly. When I stand it often makes my heart hurt n me dizzy for a short time.
My blood pressure and pulse have routinely been 120/80 n 66 ish. However. Over the last few years it has been jumping around a lot.... 134/? And then lower also. This week it was 113/57 n 54 (I felt bad, but not the worst I've been). Endocrinologist says she doesn't think it's thyroid. I had a cardiac test, stress, echo, a year ago and was fine. Thoughts? I've also lost 40 pounds since April (I think that's 12 stone to 10 stone if I'm converting properly). I'm not trying. Not eating a lot n whatever I eat.. still lose. Hashimotos was confirmed by biopsy.
I have discovered I have quite a lot of snp mutations in methylation pathway. genetic counselor results on Friday.
