I have been diagnosed recently with Hashimotos after 15 years with hypo. Recently my energy levels have crashed, I just want to sleep all the time, I have a permanent headache, huge stress and anxiety levels (I am a teacher) and constant brain fog. I have looked into supplementing my diet with vitamins and a gluten free diet. My GP thinks I might have post viral syndrome as I am constantly ill with colds or sore throats etc.
I feel completely at my wits end, has anyone got any advice? I have my bloods checked every 3 months, my T4 and TSH are never normal, one goes up, I adjust my thyroxine and the other one goes out of sync! I take 125/100mg Levo on alternate days!
Help!!! I'm about to start a new term, I feel very worried how I am going to cope. I am a 44 year old single parent to two teenagers so I know I am going to have a stressful lifestyle but it's got out of control! Can't work out if my Hashimotos is controlling my life which is making me feel so low or if it's my lifestyle that's affecting it?
Any advice gratefully received!
