Just after some advice. I've had a history of struggling with meds since I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in 2001. I've pretty much tried every brand of T4 and only found success with Evotrox liquid for a short while before it was discontinued. For the last two years I've barely been able to tolerate anything and i'm struggling to function. I feel so much better when I'm not on anything, but that only lasts for a short while before I start feeling hypo again. I should be on 125mcg, but I can't even tolerate 25mcg for one day without getting bloated, sore stomach, irritable and dry, itchy skin to name a few of my symptoms. I've tried purified thyroxine (martindales) and recently tried T3 only but half a 25mcg tablet taken each day for three days has sent me over the edge. The weird thing is I also gain weight when I take meds, and lose it (just a couple of pounds) when I'm off it initially.
I'm getting on a bit and have put having a family on hold as I've been feeling ill for years, but time is running out. I know you need to take more meds in pregnancy but I can't even tolerate the smallest amount anymore.
Any advice or suggestions would be most welcome.
Thanks in advance.
