Feeling exhausted, sad and brain fogged in Switzerland. It was discovered in Dec. 2016 that I have hypo thyroidisim. I have been struggling with weight gain, confusion, depression, hot flashes and mood swings for the last 4 years. Age 56 now (for some reason my ex-Gyno and my ex-GP poo pooed the Hormon testing I had begged for) I finally found a doctor here that tested my Hormons ( I thought it was menopause symptoms) including thyroid Hormon levels first thing. My TSH was 16.80 fT4 11.6
I was put on Levothyroxin 50, 75 and now 100 micro ml per day. Have read so much on the subject, changed my diet to no gluten, dairy or sugar ( to heal leaky gut ) but I'm starting to lose hope.
I feel even worse now, any suggestions? I will see my new doc again in a few weeks. Thank you for listening.
