I have posted in the past before about how much my hypothyroid is affecting me. I have been hypothyroid for 5 years and since my diagnosis I feel like things have progressivly got worse. I feel tired constantly, headaches almost everyday, my skin is discolouring, my skin is dry, my hair falls out in clumps, my eyebrows are barely there where they have thinned out, my whole body aches, i have acne, I am very down (mood wise) all the time, and I'm unmotivated. I have a year old son and I find it hard keeping up with him. Iv been back and forth to the doctors and Iv been told I'm wasting their time asking for blood tests and booking appointments and apparently I also do not qualify to see an endocrinologist. I just don't know what to do anymore. I have been referred for counselling (as apparently I'm overreacting!) and been giving a prescription for anti depressants which I am refusing to take. I feel like it stems deeper and Iv just had enough
I have low progesterone also but there is no treatment for long term use. I am also struggling money wise and I know a lot of you on this website suggest self medication with t3 but I just cannot afford to do it.
I do not have copies of my results but I have requested them. I was told they were in normal range but at the higher end. I feel the same regardless of where it is in the 'normal' range. They told me that they only tested tsh and t4, and refuse to test my t3 unless my t4 is low. they also tested my iron and b12 which are 'normal'. I don't feel like I can go to the doctors and speak in confidence as I'm going to be told I'm wasting time
What can I do? Iv just have enough and my son deserves an amazing and happy mum. X
