Hi I am new and I feel completely lost at the moment.
I am 32 years old and I was diagnosed hypothyroid in 2013. I have had trouble with my dose. I have been started Levothyroxine, taken off it, put back on it again, had it increased, had it reduced, had T3 added, had it taken away, had my Levothyroxine reduced again and I am starting to have enough of this constant chopping and changing.
I want to feel well again and my endo doesn't seem to understand it at all and it is bringing me to tears. I have had trouble concentrating and focusing in my job and my manager did not understand I have hypothyroidism and told me I didn't look the sort to have it. I felt that she hated my guts and I resigned from her company. She still sends me emails asking for my P45 but we left on such bad terms that a) I don't feel comfortable sending her it and b) I have moved on a lot since then by taking up a short course which I passed in and being in a temporary job that I am doing well in and I may possibly get taken on permanently since I am picking up tasks really quickly and getting invited to training courses. I am also getting married next year and I want to lose the puffiness in my eyes and the extra weight that I have gained so I can fit into my size 6 dress. I am currently an 8/10 but bordering on a size 10.
The reason why I am here of course is because of how continually poorly I still feel. My periods have become more painful and heavy, so painful they wake me from sleep; dry skin all over my legs; constipation; loss of appetite; muscle cramps and spasms; dry eyes; breathlessness and sighing a lot.
I shouldn't have to go on like this and I go through each day feeling so awful. If anyone could advise I would be grateful and thank you for reading/listening.
