I've been having some really rough times over the last few months (maybe longer).
Since I gave birth 2.5 years ago, I got progressively worse. Hashimotos tests were negative, had them done about 1.5 years ago. I've been hypo for 20 years, I was on Levo for 16 years then T3 only for 3.5 years (Levo wasn't working and my T3 levels were low, and had lots of hypo symptoms). I felt great on T3 only and got pregnant on T3 only. They convinced me to add 50mcg Levo when I was pregnant and I was unwell all the way through the pregnancy. My baby was born full term, health, health weight (6 lbs 4oz). I stopped taking the Levo when I gave birth and went back to T3 only. About 4-5 months post partum I started to get body aches and pains, and back ache, numbness in left leg and foot. I though I might have a slipped disc but I just had a lumbar MRI and it came back negative. I'm at my wit's end. I swapped some of my T3 to NDT 6 months ago,hoping that the body aches and muzzy head will go, but it didn't. Currently I'm on 25mcg T3 (circadian dose at 3am) and 2 grains ofNDT (taking 1.5 grains at 11am and 1 grain at 5pm).
I haven't done a look test since I have been on NDT. What do I need tested apart from the obvious 3?
I'm in constant pain and muddle up my words, I want to say one words and another one comes out, and say words in the wrong order in the sentence. I feel like my head is a big myzzy sausage. I cannot tolerate hot or cold weather, and it's been really hot where we are (Hungary).
To top it all, my husband and I have been arguing like all the time, he says that I'm bad tempered and argumentative, and nasty, which I find very hurtful, I don't feel like I am, but I'm inconstant pain and I find it hard to know if I'm being realistic.
Please can anyone advise me and could you please send me links to info that could explain to my husband how I am feeling and what's it like to be hypothyroid? Sometimes I feel like even though I'm trying super hard to do everything and I would hope for a praise, his expectations I can never meet, he says I lazy to look for my daughter's water bottle and asking him where it is, but I already looked and couldn't see it. Sometimes I don't see stuff even if it is right in front of me. It's so frustrating and I feel so stupid! Maybe if he knew what a struggle it can be being hypo, then maybe he can understand and be more supportive if he loves me, or if he thinks it's too much for him then he will leave.
