So something is seriously wrong with me. I’ve been on levothyroxine for about 3 years and it’s been so-so. But lately I have just been suffering. I have to nap twice a day, my eyes burn, my muscles ache, I’m losing all my hair, and the brain fog is in full force. I have IBS, PCOS, and just got disagnosed with arthritis. My ezcema is out of control and everything is falling apart.
I drove all the way up to 4 hours to see a new endocrinologist and basically begged him to help me. I’ve lost almost a year of my life because I keep going down hill. And yet I still couldn’t get an order for a free T3 test. My TSH is around 5.9 so he is just gonna up my meds times three. But I don’t know what to do. I’m at the end of my rope.
Is anyone on nature throid?? I’ve been trying to do some research and that sounds like something that might be able to help me. Looks like Armor was ok until they starting messing with it again. I'm not even 30 and I feel like my life is over. And as a sidenote my temperature is consistently 97.0 and no one other than me seems to be concerned by this.
Edit: I can't believe I didn't mention then what started this whole debacle was I got my blood work done in May and my cholesterol is out of control! It has never been bad my whole life and I don't eat red meat, smoke, or drink and am generally a healthy person when it comes to food. My doctor was arguing with me about my weight gain and how it was obviously my fault and I was trying to get her to help me with my depression that came out of nowhere and instead went home with a prescription for antidepressants and statins. That's how I ended up going to an endo in the hopes of different news other than just a higher dose of the medication I was already on.
