You can call me Mata. I am new here but not new to hypothyroidism. This disorder has been with me for what seems like forever. I think I broke my body at least 40 years ago crash dieting on 1,000 calories or less a day. The only medications I have been on are Levothyroxine and Synthroid, both at 137 mcg and this has been for the entire time my thyroid has been out of whack. I now have hashimoto's, lupus, Sjrogen's and my thyroid is fluxing between hypo and hyper (my doctor did tell me this!). I feel like this is hopeless. I get no sleep, everything seems too bright and I know I need a new doctor. I am in constant pain, my skin and hair are in bad shape and my weight is yo-yoing. I was diagnosed as bipolar but recently found out this could be my thyroid. I do not want to start over but I am so tired of feeling miserable. I do not know how to fix this because I have been with my doctor for almost 20 years and this is not getting better. I feel misinformed as most of my information has been found by me, not someone I have overpaid for so many years. Can someone please tell me what to do and how to find someone who can help fix me? I am sorry for sounding melodramatic but I have put so much faith in someone I feel has failed me and I have lost so much to this crazy disease. I honestly thought my doctor had my best interest at heart, but I now feel like it is past time to move on.
