hi, i am currently on 175mcg of levo, and my doc and specialist both say i should be ok now , as my bloods are all in the 'normal' range... i have never felt worse, the mornings are a nightmare, swollen hot hands and feet, puffy face, then there's the exhaustion. Overwhelming to the point where i just sit and cry. my workmates think i am mad. i have gone from being bubbly and happy, to miserable, snappy, and withdrawn. i can hardly climb the stairs never mind jog and do cardio in the gym. i feel i am fading away, and no one will listen! my hair is falling out rapid now, bald patches, my beautiful hair going going ....i have become so self centred, because only I will listen to me now!
Is anyone else going through this? anyone read stop the thyroid madness? and how can i get an endocrine doctor that will listen to me? i asked mine to test my T3 and he hasnt!! i really would like to try the dessicated thyroid, but am guessing its hard to get prescribed?
am sure many more people are the same as me, its hard to explain to someone that doesnt suffer with their thyroid, so i would be glad of feedback, thanks
