in a nutshell...
started with general aching all over ( like i was getting the flu' ) over 3y ago. on and off just put it down to virus / tired etc. used to get better and then come back again after a few weeks. had it all through pregnancy then worse and was always tired ( but hey aren't we all ?). eventually had bloods which showed TSH 8 t4 low so started on 50 of t4 then tsh 3.5 and asked for dose to go up to 75 and then t4 0.4.
fast forward to now 18 months later all the achiness is back- not been great at taking my meds and have been missing at least 3 days each week for a long time. gp says test after 2 months taking it properly but i just feel dreadful- can manage to go to work etc but feels rubbish, also got forgetful. have put on a lot of weight maybe i need a higher dose bcause of this.
is this flu feeling really thyroid? it feels so real. always thought thyroid problems were just tiredness dry skin etc
anyone had similar symptoms?
