Hi i'm new to here but thought i could get some help
ive tried to source some but im not sure if its legit or not. I've been on thyroxine for a year and have put on over a stone since. I even stopped taking it shortly after i got put on it as i put 5 pounds on but had to give in as i was exhuasted, doctor didnt believe me! To start with i keep telling the doctors i wasnt on enough and none of my symptoms would be change with the dose given. Finally they sent me to an endo and he put me up to 75mcg tested me four weeks later and said my level is all fine (1.28 or something like that) and doesn't care that none of my symptoms have been fixed. He even had the cheek to say if your energy levels are low do some exercise!
I'm bloated, feel like im full of water/swollen, still exhausted all the time, eat a 30g portion of cereal for lunch & dinner and exercise (HITT) 5 times a week my weight hasn't changed and i feel no more energetic maybe just a little less tired..
So i have some done some research and found that i may need to take some T3 as well a T4. I even phoned the consultant at the hospital and asked if they could change may medication (maybe to try armour instead) but he said they wont do it over the phone and i would have to wait for my next clinic which is over 2 months away!.
I feel like they think im making all these symptoms up and feel unless i can prove them wrong by showing them that a different medication works better they wont listen to me!
What more odd is im 27 years old- and not once have they actually looked into why my thyroid has packed up at my age!
