I have just joined thyroid Uk as I am extremely worried about my 24 year old daughter.She was diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease approx 18 months ago after 3 years of being told, by various doctors, she had anxiety/depression.She is on 25mg levothyroxin twice a week and 50 the rest of the week and has also been having B12 injections. The problem is she still feels extremely unwell ( brain fog, dizziness, feeling cold, extreme tiredness etc). She is trying to do a college course (she had to leave university before her diagnosis) but although she is doing well she finds it hard to go in when she's feeling unwell.My problem is that no one seems to be treating her symptoms.The blood tests seem to be normal,so the endocrinologist has discharged her back to her GP ,who I doubt is an expert, and has basically been told to get on with her life. Why is no one taking into account that she feels dreadful on a day to day basis? I would be very grateful for some advice on what we should do next as ,as her mother, I feel I should be doing something for her but I just don't know what to do.I feel like her life is on hold until someone can make her feel better!! Please help!!
