Higher nature Thyroid support that I started last week.
My doctor actually called me re my low WBC and neutrophil (It has been lower 2.3 but nothing has been done about it but its been like this for the past 5 years or more) a bacterial infection has been mentioned. I also have herpes, which I have had for over 30 years. When it became a problem I was treated for 2 years with daily dose of acyclovir but was stopped 6 years ago and I was told to only use it if needed, but I can't take it now as it makes me feel ill. The doctor has now said that its recurrent shingles I have and not herpes. Looking back over the past 6 years since stopping acyclovir I have been diagnosed with CFS, fybromyalgia and IBS etc. My doc has mentioned my cholesterol which is creeping up even although I have a very healthy diet, and I exercise when able.
I have taken the list of symptoms from the thyroiduk website having ticked nearly every box including the raised cholesterol and weight gain but it was ignored. My temperature is average 35.4 but has been as low as 35.0.
I can have days even weeks where I feel ok but then I crash and have symptoms of complete exhaustion, dizziness like I’m drugged, brain fog, poor memory etc etc. I have to drag myself to bed as soon as I get home from work but then have sleepless nights, I’m so exhausted but I can’t sleep, needless to say I am in a bad way the next day. My mood is very low and I find it difficult to carry out everyday tasks. I have had 6 blood tests taken in 3 months and all are normal, except the WBC and cholesterol.
My doctor is now trying to arrange an appointment at the chronic fatigue clinic but that can take weeks and until then I have to just put up with the symptoms and continue to live on ibuprofen.
A few years ago I saw a private Endo when I was on 6 months sick leave having been diagnosed with CFS after collapsing at work. I took with me my Blood test results from Genova, that said I was sub clinical hypothyroid so he suggested I try T4 but I didn’t tolerate it very well. I though maybe if I try a very reduced dose of t3 it would help my symptoms till my doctor admits I have a problem and helps me with my meds, until then I will have to self medicate but worry about getting it wrong and making myself feel worse than I do at present.
Thanks to all for your advice.
