Hi. I've been hypothyroid for 10 years. Im now in my 30s and have been really battling to regain my health after having my last child (nearly 3 years ago).
I just wondered if there is something else I may be overlooking.
I struggle with increases in dosage of levothyroxine and have to do it incredibly slowly as I get vertigo, migraines, palpitations and panic attacks to name a few of the effects.
I weigh more now than I did when I was at the heaviest point in my pregnancy. The list of symptoms I experience is too long to go into but here are the main ones; fatigue, brain fog, anaemia, hair loss, generalised pains, gluten dairy and chemical sensitivity.
A recent change in the brand of levothyroxine I'm taking has resulted in the symptoms I experience when increasing dosage.
My diet is very clean, I juice 5 days of the week and I try to get out and walk one time twice a week (even though it takes me 3 or 4 days to recover).
Any suggestions to help me regain some health would be greatly appreciated. I'm a single mother of 3 children, each with varying degree of special needs so really need my health to be able to support us all.
