However I still have problems - bloody fatigue! High cortisol, Vitamin D is medium range but slightly low. Despite supplementing, I am still feeling lack of concentration and currently studying my law degree and its a pain in the butt and lecturers have laughed at me for all the blonde stuff I have come out with. Its really really bad! The simplest of tasks and words and so on I used to be able to grasp and now I am cant any more. I can not follow instructions properly, my memory is very rubbish, still waking up absolutely fatigued to hell, I am in a post lottery area the medical staff at Wishaw general hospital and Monklands hospital,Coatbridge are a bunch of clowns.Some time ago, I even had a female doctor from Wishaw general hospital threatening security because I refused to leave the premises because I demanded blood tests at accident emergency as my symptoms were killing me and all I got was oh your thyroid levels are normal don't worry and as for your symptoms, nothing to worry about they are all part and parcel of your condition and your not gonna die. I said look! I am suffering please treat me properly! Everytime I go to the hospital with something that I feel is really bad and feeling like rubbish. The minute I mention hypothyroidism or bipolar, I get dismissed and sent home with paracetamol tablets!
When I was threatened by the doctor to go home or we contact security to go out, I kept pushing and pushing and questioning her authority - oh she hated it and gritted her teeth! The minute I mentioned I was studying my law degree they all backed off and started doing blood tests at A and E. Any other time before that, I have never had that! This doctor I saw her last year dismissing my high iron levels as me appearing to be on cocaine and sent me to a psychiatrist.
I hate these omniscient psychic doctors that think everything I am experiencing is all in my head.
Cannabis has helped ease my symptoms, has helped reduce my medications, followed by the slimming world diet and hypothyroidism diet.
Now for over a month I have ran out of cannabis and the old symptoms are back....grrrr
My tsh is 0.01 which is well below 1. T4 is very low 1.1 ( normal range 9-21) and T3 is 5.6 ( normal range 5-6.9) I am currently taking 85mg of T3 and I was on 90mg of T3. Going by my thyroid test results, could I then take an extra 5mg of t3? I cant tolerate levothyroxine very well and pig thyroid also although I did well losing the weight on pig thyroid. I was one t4 t3 but I was really really ill on the stuff!
