Hi, hoping someone can try and help me figure out whether this is thyroid related, or if i'm just losing my mind?
This is what is happening, I am barely getting any sleep, getting to sleep and staying asleep i'm struggling massively with.
During the day, I can go from being ok one minute, to feeling so angry and very emotional within seconds of each other.
I am retaining more fluid than ever before, my legs feel so tight and my ankles and feet swell so much I can't wear any shoes.
I am getting like stabbing pains in my head, and headaches most days.
I have no appetite, am thirsty a lot more than I used to be.
Mentally, I feel sometimes like things are in slow motion, or that I am in an alternative reality, some sensory problems, feel like i'm about to faint or lose consciousness, mentally slower, some dizziness, and just not feeling 'with it' for want of a better description. I dread communication via phone or face to face, because I don't seem able to say what I need to, or make myself understood.
Could this be down to being on too low a dose of thyroxine? I am currently taking 150mcg for Hypo..
I am having a Short Synacthen Test next Thursday, when he will re-check my thyroid levels too..
Sorry for the long, possibly boring post, i'm just a little bit scared of not knowing what is happening to me and why..
Any comments/feedback welcomed..
