Here goes a long story. I had a limp inh neck for around w years before I eventually convinced doc to remove it, turned out to be thyroid cancer. I was 26. Had thyroid removed then RAI.
3 years later I was bedridden for 8th due to severe back pain due to a slipped disc. Had surgery for that in 2007.
In 2008 the cancer came back. Had another surgery, 11 hours long and lost my jugular vein and main muscle from righthand side of my neck. Then had 7 weeks radiotherapy. All seemed well for a while then in 2012 I had my son and started getting wide spread pain. Eventually diagnosed with fybromialgia and osteoarthritis in my knees. I don't sleep well or eat much.
Lately I have been having extreme night sweats (which I only ever had when I had cencer) and pain in my throat and neck
Went to see gp who referred me urgently to my prev surgeon. She also took blood.
Had it done in April by oncologist and all good but thus time she said tsh is 0.5 and t4 is. 30.4 plus glucose is 6.7. Been told to drop from 250mcg thyroxine a day to 100mcg. I do not feel hyper ( been there before). I am worried that cutting my meds so drastically will send.me.into a spin. I see my surgeon on wed. And I calledy oncologist today, waiting for his sector call back with his advice.
Just feels like one thing after another
I live in constant pain, couldn't even get out of bed yest. I feel so helpless.
