I was raking around in some old posts on here, searching for info on the above as I have believed that once my thyroid medication was properly balanced, my anxiety and depression would disappear.
In one of the posts, I read that hypothyroidism can CAUSE anxiety disorder/depression, and that the two conditions MIGHT need to be treated separately, ie with thyroid meds AND anti depressants.
I have been unsuccessful at increasing my Levo beyond 87.5, and have not been able to tolerate T3 at all
( synthetic or NDT). My adrenals have been treated and Vit D, B12 etc. all optimal. I still suffer from symptoms such as tiredness, fatigue, anger, irritability, fatigue etc. I have Hashimotos but anti bodies are low.
So is my body is telling me that my thyroid meds are, in fact optimal, and that I need some anti depressants as well ? Its such a battle to try to feel well and normal again!!
Does anyone have a view, or experience, please, or any good websites I could explore
