Sorry to post again. All your kind comments with support the other day meant alot so thank you.
I had a good few days then today I woke feeling similar. Very thirsty, dehydrated, weak, fatigued.... it almost triggered a panic attack but I managed to ride with it but all day it's triggered so much anxiety as I fear collapsing, worry why these energy crashes hit where I feel so dry in my mouth, hotand weak. I woke feeling exhausted. I've been getting energy crashes for 6 months, they hit after too much exertion, even housework or emotional issues like if I have visitors and do lots of talking. Yesterday my mum visit for 4 hours which I find hard as our relationship is strained and I get anxious seeing her. So my husband reminded me that today is a crash day after an emotional day yesterday. But me being me I am scared as Wednesday I woke feeling bad fatigue, hot flashes, very dry mouth and weakness and since I've panicked what it is.
I've been on 25mg thyroxine 5 weeks now. My tsh was rising since last summer but my gp said it was finever as I had no antibodies. I had to go private and keep testing and once my tsh hit over 7 he started listening. My last bloods in may showed my tsh was 9.28 and ft4 15.7, ft3 was 5.3 ish. He finally reluctantly agreed to trial thyroxine. I'm having a blood test next week.
Tomorrow we are going to a caravan park 40 minutes from home. Our 3 children and 2 dogs are so excited I've been so looking forward to it and prior to this last week I felt so much better with fat less crashes. I knew if I carried on feeling that we'll I could go and enjoy it. Now I'm having these crashes I'm terrified and my anxiety is bad. My husband thinks my anxiety is the main cause. I struggle to believe it's anxiety as I've no fast heart or shakes but my husband and friend tell me that's an anxiety attack not the general anxiety I'm experiencing. My hubby thinks it's why I'm crashing and feeling physical symptoms as I was feeling much better. He says yes you've hypo and chronic fatigue type symptoms but your anxiety does make you feel much worse. Today I've felt weak, drained, walking around scared, weak legs, feeling sick and upset tummy... it's making me.so afraid to go on holiday incase I collapse, end up in hospital or have to come home and let my children down. They so deserve this holiday. As do I and I want to enjoy it not feel scared. I always feel such fear for my hypo symptoms which I knoe makes me feel much worse. I've always had anxiety but not anything this bad. Being physically ill triggered my anxiety, makes me feel scared to go out alone (hence the fear of needing a doctor or hospitals as having agoraphobia I couldn't cope).... lots of damn fears.
Any words of wisdom? I wish I could stop fearing how I feel with hypothyroidism and just allow it to be there without adding so much anxiety on a crash day.
Sorry to post again. I'm devatsted I've crashed right before the holiday and I'm worried incase tomorrow I let them down 😢
