Fed up of waiting for the NHS who are dragging this out as long as they can for that magic 5 on the TSH (im 3.54) after seing the Endo for 1st time and also i have just posted back my private bloods to blue horizon ...i decided this morning to start myself on 50 mcg of levo i bought in the pharmacy while out in Turkey...i just cannot go on feeling like this any longer...i have never felt so blooming ill in my life!!! I am a lone parent of 5 kids 3 are autistic and i help look after my parents my mum has alzeimers and my dad bowel cancer ( they live together at their house accross town) i need my energy which has been cruelly taken away and replaced with a foggy head beyond belief the energy level of a gnat, unexplained weight gain.....freezing cold...thinning hair bla de bla gp and endo keen on keeping this going i am not ive had it!!!
When blue horizons tests come back i will know the full story have requested the full 12'that includes T3 ( my gp and endo refused) and a rT3 i wil then know if i am wasting my time with levo and reassess.... Feel so alone in all this..sourounded by people who think doctors know best.....and its getting to me
I eat superclean and (was) going gym every day now only have the energy 3 times and i forcing myself to do that....ive worked my butt off to be healthy and feel im being forced to be ill...infact i feel im going nuts with it all....hope someone out there can relate to this? All advice and suggestions welcome
