Hi ive just joined to this group and hoping i can get some advice! I've not been well on and off since May last year, feeling really tired, needing to have naps in an afternoon, feeling very sluggish and struggling to do my job and just daily life! I became very unwell in August, then again in September, the first time in August, i was tested for diabetes and Addisons disease because of my symptoms, both came back ok! In September they eventually decided to test me for my throid and it came back borderline! I was so relieved because i just thought people were thinking i was putting it on!! I was referred to an endo and when i saw him he said that even though i had the symptoms and was suffering with terrible tiredness, he was reluctant to put me on thyroxine, because once your on it, your on it for life!! I came away very upset and frustrated! I felt as though i just had to plod on with it! In December i saw the endo again and he said my antibodies were in the 1,000's and he said my body was fighting its own immune system and i have what's called hashimotos, this time he said my bloods came back normal 😏! Anyway i asked him to test me for vitamin d and it came back i was deficient hallelujah i felt! The endo said well perhaps it might benefit you to go on vitamin d! So ive been on 60,000 units a week and have been feeling better!
Anyway 4 weeks ago i started to feel really tired again, sluggish and as though I'm always walking in sinking sand, so took myself to the drs and said i wasn't well ( as you know your own body and when your feeling crap) told her to do some bloods and when i went back for my results my tsh is 5.5 and she said oh its high and you would definitely benefit from going on a trial of thyroxine, so she's referred me to a different endo and told me i have to convince him to be put on thyroxine!! Why do i have to convince him when my bloods are telling him im really not well 😤😤! Druggies get given methodone with no questions asked or convincing! Its so wrong, us people that are suffering are getting pushed aside and made to feel a fraud and its wrong! I'm 42 and normally bubbly and full of life, this is affecting my daily life!
Fingers crossed for me i am there today. P.s has anyone heard of getting this hashimotos after having breast implants!? I had mine done 3 years ago and i read about it a while ago? Or is it from when there was the controversy about the wrong implants years ago? Thanks everyone for listening.
