I have had a nightmare with my thyroid over the past four years - up down up down - they are currently looking at whether I have HASHI's had to have a raft of private tests done (costing a bomb) and seeing private ENDO as NHS are hopeless.
Getting my tests back next week. I was overmedicated apparently back in February my TSH was 0.02 - I was hyperthyroid holding three stone and very anxious depressed and all over the place. I've since reduced from 100mg to 75mg and now lost two stone and had a good two months.
However - now my hair is falling out A LOT every day - I get cold - I am fighting depression - brain fog - puffy face - bad skin - constipation - you name it - I look ten years older - and I don't know if it's because I have gone hypo now - with TSH at 3.85 - or if it's low ferritin - 21 - and low Vitamin D last tested 40
My symptoms got worse after I had a B12 injection in August.
MY eyes are glassy and itchy and ache and I am not sure if it's TED or whether inflammation is high in my body and it's just allergy / auto immune
I suffered a huge bereavement in June - couldn't eat properly for 6 weeks - so could this have caused a swing back to hypo?
It is SO FRUSTRATING AND LIFE DESTROYING I used to be a professional dancer singer actress and this has crippled me. Feels like I will never get back to normal after the last six years. I WANT MY LIFE BACK!
Someone mentioned nascent iodine to me - is this something I would benefit from? Also Natural Dessicated Thryroid? I take vitamin supplements - was advised to come off TH207 and DRIVE when I was hyperthryoid but now I think I might need them again.
Anybody PLEASE can you advise?
I get the next blood screen results back next week of thyroid, ferritin, vit d, b12, zinc.
I am seeing Dr Kevin Shotliff for the first time week after that.
I would be so grateful for your advice.
