My name is karina and I am 45 years old. I have had the diagnosis of fibromyalgi for many years. I have been taking cymbalta and for almost a year ago I stopped cold turkey because of my period that has been gone since I was 40 years old, suddenly came back.
It turns out that I have high prolactin levels and a pituitary tumor. But its not a prolaktinom. Cymbalta can course that high prolactin.. so my doctor who didn't know anything about cymbalta withdrawal syndrome just told me to do every other day. I ended up in the hospital with really bad symptoms like a stroke like symptoms. I had been bedridden for 8 months. I went back on cymbalta and are slowly tapering out. I will be finish in April 2017.
In the meantime I went to a natural doctor who found out I had hypothyroidisme type 2. I have been taking erfa thyroid meds since February and I started slow with 2 x 15mg as the weeks went by I upped so I was on 120mg. Then my numbers was to high and I had it awful. Anxesity. Sweeting feeling of sugar drop. Dizzy. Stomach pain etc. I backed down to 90mg and had a few good weeks. Now it's the same again. I have dropped to 75mg but are not getting better this time.
Now for my question.
Is it possible that cymbalta coursed the low free3 and free t4? And becouse of my life changing to none gluten sugar refinded products, juicing everyday and supplements is getting my own system to work again?
my latest bloodwork for free t3 and 4 has been in the high end but good. But now I wake up with anxiety and heart beating fast. Dizzy and unwell. Stomach troubles again. And a overall feeling of being sick. I have a few moments where I feel okay.
Can I try stopping my erfa thyroid meds.? Or what should I do?
I hope someone has tried something like this before.
Thanks for your help and advice
