Hello, I am newly registered. I currently take 175mcg levothyroxine and I have been advised by GP that I am undermedicated.
My problem is that my endocrinologist has said I have a mental illness and that my below symptoms can not possibly be thyroid, please see below:
Low energy levels
Periods draining me
Looking ill, pale and tired
Bone and muscle pain
Diagnosed 2012, I am starting to think the endocrinologist is right and I should be going back to my GP to order an antipsychotic or antidepressant.
I take my levothyroxine on an empty stomach with just water and I leave 4 or more hours between the dose and food/drink/supplements/medications.
Thanks for advice in advance.
