I've been having symptoms of overactive thyroid now for 3/4 years and seem to be getting nowhere with the doctors. My symptoms come and go but seem to flare up a week or 10 days before my menstrual cycle begins. My symptoms are extreme fatigue, muscle weakness, dizziness, weight loss, anxiety, night sweats, brain fog, palpitations, brittle nails, urinating frequently and my eyes are sometimes red or blurry.
My doctor seems to think it's my hormones and I could be entering the menopausal stage even though I'm only 42 and she wants to put me on the contraceptive pill or HRT. But I know the difference between feeling hormonal and unwell and I'm reluctant to believe her. I've had a full blood count and my results showed normal although my iron level was only just above the normal range. I'm still waiting for my thyroid results which should come back today.
I'm at a loss as to what to do or where to go for more advice, should I see another doctor?
When I get by thyroid results I'm going to request a print out of all my recent tests so I can post them on here, hopefully someone will be able to interpret them for me as I don't know how to...
