I discovered this amazing site for the first time last year after hypothyroid for 24years with no problems. Six weeks ago fell,head injury,seizure caused by head injury never had a seizure before.TSH 180 on thyroxine 175mcgs then TSH 100 hours later on same day which no one can explain all help on this would be gratefully received. Thyroxine increased to 225mcgs & TSH two weeks ago 77. As I haven't had any issues with thyroid previous to this I've definitely been in denial dismissing folks saying I shouldn't be at work despite very supportive messages & advice on this forum I thought I can do this, return to work get some normality again but I have been very wrong.This week has been particularly difficult & I don't know why as TSH still high but going in the right direction. I have such achey muscles & my fingers are swollen, so fatigued & put things off daily convinced I'll do them tomorrow just doesn't work like that. Main issue is dizziness esp when I've been moving round then sit down get wave of dizziness & going from standing to lying down is awful I genuinely feel I'm going to pass out lasts abavout 10 seconds - advice anyone? My sick line for work ran out today & gp was leaving one to be collected which my son picked up,I know my gp feels I should be back to work & I knew this very true when the sick line was from tomorrow to Monday with expectation I'll resume work on tues all very bizarre. I desperately need advice what can I say so he understands how ill I really feel? My son's are at this practice so I want to stay there plus there are no spaces at other surgerys & I do like my gp who I rarely need to see. I am a strong woman normally but I am done can't take on or manage anymore..please help Yx
