Hi, I am new to this and have really been suffering the last 6 months or so.
I was diagnosed back in 2013/14 after having most of the usual symptoms of hypothyroidism. I was Borderline and had to fight with my GP to even start the medication as I could no longer live with the symptoms. I was started off on 25mg, in the last couple of months I have had my dose increased to 50mg as I was starting to get the same symptoms reappear as they did when first put on the levothyroxine. I have since had heart palpitations, incredibly dry skin, feeling very down and stressed and feeling incredibly anxious and emotional.
I have been back to the doctors 2 weeks ago and had my blood tested again as my blood pressure was too high and having got the blood test results back I have been told to stay on the 50mg and be tested again in 3 to 6 months.
From this appointment I was signed off from work with stress as I have been struggling to cope and I broke down at the doctors.
Today I feel sluggish, my brain feels fuzzy, I feel sick and when reading this screen everything seems blurry. I have been experiencing migraines and my periods have not been as regular as normal.
Would love to hear if anyone else has experienced anything similar.
