Ok, only my second post and I'm afraid it's going to be an epic!
I have been taking levothyroxine for approximately 4 years and my symptoms seem to have been gradually increasing. I take 125mg daily (at night).
In the last 6 months I have been back to my doctors on several occasions telling them that I am suffering from at least 15 headaches a month - 5 of these being full blown migraines, occasional dizziness, toe nails thickening and tinged yellow,occasional numbness of tongue and complete fatigue. They have endeavoured to get blood tests done for t3 t4 iron etc, but on each occasion the lab has not carried out their request. Having done some research myself, I take daily supplements of zinc, vit b12, iron and vit d3. In addition to this, having monitored my cycle, I believe I am peri menopausal and have an estrogen dominance which I think causes my migraines mid cycle. I am also convinced that levothyroxine is not the correct medication for me.
I am a full time mum to a 10 year old with learning difficulties, with a husband who lives and works overseas and therefore I cannot afford to keep being ill - quite simply I have reached the end of my tether!!!!!
My surgery has said they will look at any private blood test results, so that is the route I am now headed.
I just need to know which tests I should have.
I have made a New Years resolution to finally sort out my Ill health - sick of not feeling well.
Any help would be very much appreciated.
