Hoping for some advice to improve my ever decreasing energy & increasing weight.
Bit of a saga but here goes!
Have struggled most of my life (now 66) with low energy, monthly problems with various surgery to try to remedy. Big issue 20 years ago put down to stress of divorce. Very unwell, heart raced for 8 to 10 hours after a dance sessions or other excercise. Hair loss, skin rash/ dryness, terrible shaking etc. After approx 8 years, a friend who has goiter told me to ask for throid test. Results were more than double what is normal. Another 7 years on carbimazole, then radii iodine which after approx 2 hours caused terrible stomach burn like bad indigestion for 3 weeks. I felt very ill & my daughter said I looked green? Some months later, prescribed levothyroxin. 3 weeks after taking 25 mg alternate days, went into a fib blue lighted to hosp with heart rate 268. 3 inject of heart stop drug failed to work & so continued for 3 days & nights then flipped back to norm. I was convinced it was meds. Did own research to show consultant, all denied. Reduced & took myself off it heart meds & angina pain & all other heart ssymptoms went. Eventually found Armour & banged on until consultant agreed. Done well for about 2 years but now have very little energy, gained over 2 stones, despite restricted healthy diet? Any help please?
