I was diagnosed with under active thyroid almost 5 years ago, starting off being boarder line for a long time until eventually receiving treatment.
My dosage of levothyroxine started out at 50 micrograms and has increased over time to 300 micrograms per day that i am currently on.
Numerous visits to the GP regarding my many symptoms generally results in me returning home with unanswered questions and me considering that im actually loosing my mind!
I was refereed to the hospital at one point and after discussing WHY i felt that i had put on weight and what i was unhappy about i was told everything was fine!
As it stands today i do not have the energy to get out of bed (but have to as have to work) my symptoms are: weight gain, hair loss, cramps, heavy menstrual cycle, memory loss, depression, i could honestly keep going. The dizziness and the feeling of not being able to swallow are what are concerning me the most at present.
I am totally at a loss as to what to do now and it is effecting my home life, my family are understanding to what im going through but i have went from a strong minded upbeat person to a emotional and physical wreck..
On reading all the other comments i can see everyone else is in the same situation but i just wanted to know if there was any further help i could look into to at least try and have a better quality of life.
