Hi everyone. My name is Daisy. I have been feeling really rotten for nearly a year now- hair loss, profound tiredness and depression/ anxiety.
My first blood test revealed very low tsh levels but low/ normal t4. That was a year ago and I had them don't again and the same thing this year.
So the doc started me on thyroxine 75mg basically to see what would happen. I've been on antidepressants for years, having an inherited depression and anxiety problem since my 20s ( I'm 53 now)
He thought they might help them to work better and thinks that I have secondary hypothyroidism but doesn't know what is causing it. (MRI scan scheduled for next month)
So I wanted to know why I feel worse this week after 4 weeks on the levoithyroxine
I have even more hair loss- what seems like handfuls - my mood is truly terrible.
Does anyone have similar issues? Can anyone help before I go out of my mind? I'm really struggling ...
