I have hypothyroidism and take 100mcg thyroxine. I am told that my blood results are bang on, but I'm fatigued, depressed, and my muscles hurt. I am overweight even though I stick to around 1000 calories and am reasonably active.
I'm fed up watching life tick away and feeling dreadful. GP no help, wants me to take anti depressants, but I don't find they help and I am convinced this is a physical issue not a mental health one. Sure, there are mental health results from it, but I want to address the root cause rather than fiddling with the symptoms. Trouble is, GPs just want to get you out of the office and that means you have to go back many times and it's just gone on for far too long now.
I suspect something autoimmune, as I also have vitiligo, suspect Hashi's, and have leaky gut symptoms. Endocrinologist was disinterested, speculated that I have fibromyalgia and told me to trundle back to my GP rather than doing anything that might help. I feel like I'm not getting anywhere.
Does anyone have any thoughts on what to do next? I would welcome advice.
