Hi, I've been hypo for years and had been 'stable' on 150mcgs Levo for a least 4 years following the birth of my youngest daughter. However, I've suffered with anxiety and depression since I was about 20 (I'm now 38). It was only when I discovered the Thyroid uk site that I realised this could be a symptom of ineffective treatment of my under active thyroid. I had some private bloods done....see photo. My GP is not supportive and only talks about my tsh being in range. They refused to prescribe NDT so I sourced my own. I've increased gradually until I was on 3.5 grains Thiroid a day split into 2 doses. However, I then went hyper and had palpitations etc so I lowered it down to 3 grains split equally. These symptoms have now abated but my anxiety and depression has never improved.
I take 12.5 mcg Vitamin D and 500mcg B12 a day. I struggle with constant pain in my knees, feel exhausted and my legs feel week. I've just had 8 weeks off work due to my anxiety/depression and am on the verge of going off again as I just can't cope. I also struggle with a constant lower back ache and my mood worsens significantly during ovulation and my period. I'm seeing my gp this afternoon so will get my most recent results that showed I was hyper later. Does anyone have any suggestions?
