I hope you are all feeling ok ish? Well, I am still quite unwell
I saw Dr Peatfield a year ago: I have been taking:
* NAX (x 2 per day for sluggish Adrenal gland..)
* Natural Thyroid (Thyroid S from Thailand) for under-active thyroid - my last TSH was 2.4
*B12 injections x one every 8 wks (GP), AND x two per week - self administrating. ( B12 results were quite good - well into the top of the range )
*Vit C (2000 grams)......
*Q10 200 mg for energy
Iron tablets - one per day to keep my level up.......I was constantly suffering from Anemia (Ferratin and Iron level results: again about middle to high range)
**I have also been taking Venlafaxine 225 mg per day. The problem is that I have been taking them for 15 yrs. I felt so awful - went to see GP who said that there is a chance that I could be immuned to them...she gave me and extra 37.5 mg.....that was 3 months ago***
Apologies for being a bit fague with test results; I have not got them to hand, however, what I have stated are a very good indicator.
***One massive problem I have is the menopause: I am 56 yrs old. I have been going through the menopause for the last 7 years......its awful. The worst is the PMT ( I really don't have periods now, but, there is a very, very slight loss of blood....each month). BUT I am like a demented woman...I cry all the time, I am so very depressed, anxious, not sleeping, terrible mood swings......ect......ect..
**I am sure that there is some sort of correlation between these dreadful menopausal symptoms and adrenal fatigue, b12 deficiency, low ferritin and iron levels......under-active thyroid and allergies --I suffer from Eczema, hay fever and many other allergies.
ANYWAY, I don't know what to do anymore, I have noticed my eyebrows are nearly non -existent.....I am still very tired, mood swings, depressed, not sleeping (The not sleeping seems to be worse since I have been taking NAX??)....Although my Arthritis is a touch better??
Please can somebody help??
