38yrs female diagnosed mildly hypothyroid in 2009 started on 25mcg levothyroxine increased over the years up to 150mcg and back down to 50mcg now up to 75mcg again (on Dianette for skin, to regulate periods & PCOS for a year in 2014 - could this have masked symptoms & affected thyroid blood results?)
19yrs - severe clinical depression prescribed SSRIs
10 yrs medication free
Since 29yrs been on a mixture of anti-depressants & fluctuating thyroxine throughout my 30s.
Now also on a mood stabiliser and lorazepam for anxiety.
In simple terms, can you pls explain whether it's my thyroid or mental health that needs treating & where in Birmingham I can get the best holistic help as I'm struggling to stay sane.
