Hello Everybody. Im new on here. Have been looking through post to try and get a better understanding of what doctors told me whats wrong.
Iv been feeling unwell for about three months now. I thought I just had a virus and would get better soon but i didnt. I first started by having poorly eyes which was very sensitive (still are) to cold or light,they started getting blood shot for about 2 weeks but then got better by themselves I went to the doctors about this but they said there was no sign of infection and there was nothing they could do. I had patches of dry skin which realy itch again I went to doctors they did give me steriod cream because they said it was infected. TBH I thought nothing of these two things but then I started getting pins and needles when i had lack of energy and one morning woke up with a serve headache and then I started having headrushes all the time (like when you stand up to fast and you can feel blood rushing to your head)...but these are constant and over EVERY little movements like even turning my head. Then I just felt extremly tired and every little thing seemed hard work. I lost my voice for few days and now it is constantly hoarse, last thing was all smallest noises seem extremly loud and I find my self always cold.
So I went to the doctors and they sent me for blood tests told me I had hypothyrodism, they said my levels where dangerously low and so I had to start taking levothyroxine asap. However I felt no better so after a week I went back to the doctors and they told sent me for another blood test, when the result came back they told me all my levels are now how they should be but I have had something called autoimmune thyroditis and thats whats caused my hypothyrodism but I would be better in a few weeks they also put me on vitamin D. I left it over a month hoping I would get better (like the doctor said)but really struggled to cope feeling so unwell especially while looking after my two young children, so I went back and the doctors have now put me on beta-blockers now which give me sleepless nights or nightmares. Iv been told all my levels are now what they should be but I cant understand why I still feel poorly and they doctors have refered me to the hospital and Im worried about further tests and what for.
I do feel abit better than when it all started because most the syptoms I talked about earlier seemed to be at bay however I have found a link to my eating habbits and feeling unwell. I have always struggled to eat 3 set meals on time a day and tbh still do, but Iv found I now HAVE to eat 3 meals a day and cant go more than 4 hours with no meal because if i dont eat all the symptoms come back, starting with the head rushes to the tiredness then i get pins and needles bad starting in my hands then legs,feet. Iv been tested for diabetes and told I have not got that. Im starting to feel quite fed up and just want to understand how I can permenantly get better.
