This is my first post here and I feel so very unwell and extremely low. I'm hoping that those that have been through this can help please.
I have had a thyroid problem for 27years and have been on T4 all that time and have never really felt well, feeling very low a lot of the time (a period on SSRI's), lots of weight gain, fatigue etc., but have managed. My dose of Levothyroxine during those years alternating between 75mcg and 100mcg. I've mainly had Hypo. symptoms but with occasional overmedication my main symptom is palpitations and insomnia.
In the last 2 years my TSH has been really erratic, from 13.5 and more recently 0.01. In the last 4 months I've become so unwell and depressed. I don't want to leave the house, no sleep, no appetite, sweating, sore eyes, exhausted, and the list goes on! But temp. is 35.00. and no palpitations. So I'm not sure if it's Hypo. or Hyper? Is my TSH low because the T4 is staying in the blood stream? I feel as if I'm heading for a nervous breakdown and can't stop crying.
Seen 2 Drs. who keep telling me to stay on 75mcg and it will right itself. Asked to see an Endo. and was finally referred but the Endo. refused to see me sending a letter saying he wouldn't see me as I was OK!
I'm taking Selenium, zinc, molybdenum, B12, folate, other B vits. and have just started iron. I'm trying to help my Adrenals.
I feel so unwell and am totally on my own with this and finding it hard to cope with 'day-to-day' living. I know people cannot tell me what to do but any help or suggestions will be gratefully received.
