Feeling disheartened- was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism in October 2017, started on 100mg levothyroxine and started feeling very unwell a week later, weak, faint and shaky. I insisted on taking a lower dose in new year so now on 50mg. I don't feel as bad as I did but I still feel exhausted and have to force myself to do things. I have aching joints and have gained over a stone in weight since taking them. I've also been diagnosed with Diabetes and fatty liver recently too. I feel sure it's all linked. I've asked my doctor for NDT but he won't prescribe it because he says it's unregulated. I tried giving up the medicine completely for a week but I felt even worse with thyroid symptoms.
I do feel like it's the medicine that is causing a lot of my problems but the GP doesn't agree. I've seen that I can get hold of NDT myself but don't want to operate outside of NHS unless it's a final resort.
Does anyone know of an alternative medicine or a list of Doctors in the South East who prescribe NDT?
