Hi everyone, I am new here and I don't honestly know how to approach my problems(of which there are many). I have been diagnosed with under- active thyroid for some time and have b12 injections 3 monthly also diagnosed with IBS.
July 2015 I had an op to remove a largish cyst and the ovary it was attached to! a very stressful year - Husband then had operation and I had further tests for chest and lungs whilst this was going on (borderline asthma). To top it all, we had a close family bereavement in November after months of upset.
When I had the follow up after my op. in September 2015, The gynae. consultant said I was over- active and to reduce my dosage from 150mcgs to 125mcgs.
Fast forward to September the following year and the annual blood test for thyroid , the surgery rang next day and told me I was quite under-active and to increase to 150mcgs, then to 175mcgs. I felt worse than ever, I was running on fast forward all the time and no concentration at all just not functioning on a day to day level.
Then I seemed to just drop like a stone, so weak, no interest at all in anything;
as exhausted when I get up as when I went to bed!
Saw the Dr. seems to think it's stress and wants me to stay on 175 or alternate doses 150/175 every alternate day! I hate messing about with the medication.
I feel terrible and I have decide to just take 150mcgs until July when they want to test again. But now my throat feels horrible, I am always exhausted, my chest feels 'thumpy'(my word) and I have pins/needles in my leg and into foot. I don't know if this is thyroid or my PA.
Sorry to witter on, but would really appreciate any advice or thoughts on what to do next?
Thank you for struggling through such a long post!
