Sorry for the long post.....
I've been on levothyroxine for 21 years. When I first got diagnosed as under active I had 3 babies aged 6 weeks, 11 months and 22 months. I felt very I'll straight away after taking Levi and went back to doc who said ineedded to give it more time to work. I then went back again saying how I'll I felt and was to!d it was because I had 3 babies under 2 and what did I expect.
I started on 125mg and over the years have gone between 100 and 200mg. I have had so many medical problems over the years including bipolar and osteoarthritis. I have put on 8 Stone in weight and attempted suicide 5 times. I can't do relationships and broke up with my children's dad 15 years ago and I have no friends.
I took beta blockers for migraine and also had a dodgy heart rhythm. I took sleeping tablets every night but was lucky if I slept 3 hours a night.I self harmed and was unable to go in a supermarket alone cos I was so scared of the world.
6 weeks ago I stopped taking all my meds. For 5 weeks I felt so bloody good!! I was alive again. Last week I had my bloods done and got the results today. They would only do tsh and t4 although I asked for more they told me I'd have to go private. I live on 50 a month I can't afford to go private. When I got results today from doc on phone he said my results were really bad and i need to start Levo again. He wouldn't tell me my levels said I didn't need to know. I said I wasn't going back on Levo he said I had no other choice there was nothing else apart from death.
He is the senior doc in the practice so where can I go from here please
