I've been hypothyroid for over 20 years now .. and being quiet nieve I just took docs advice and my levothyroxine had benn going up and up .. I'm currently on 200mg a day as my TSH levels gone up to 20.
I constantly battle with fatigue. Headaches achy joints. Etc.
But lately feel I just can't cope any longer. Docs pit me on antidepressants 3 years ago since I lost my brother through ms.
I feel I can't cope with daily life and am now on reduced hours in work as I. Any do s full day !
I used to be a healthy active person. Running going to the gym but I've not done that for years.i have elderly parents to look after and can't even cope with looking after myself !
I did some research online and found I maybe experiencing problems from the levothyroxine I'm taking !!!!
I finally paid to go see an endocrinologist last month privately as I was tearing my hair out.
I wanted to come off levo abd try something more natural. However I've seen him twice now and he insists I stay on the drugs and says come back in two months !
Please can anyone give me any advice. Had anyone else experienced the problem of .. no one is listening to them ?
I have cronic brain fog and can't think straight. What has to happen before someone listens ?
I live on my own .. some days I don't feel safe to even drive !
Please help !
