Hi, I am new and I am fed up. I am fed up of feeling so unwell. I am fed up of my endo not caring about how I feel. I am fed up of having my dose changed about so many times.
I was diagnosed hypothyroid in 2012. It was a shock to say the least because I was the first in my family to be told I have it. My mum's diagnosis followed 3 years later. Family have a whole host of autoimmune and endocrine problems.
I want to get well, but I get the feeling I will never get that far since I felt almost back to normal on 200mcg Levothyroxine and 20mcg T3 back in June 2017. My focus was better, I was happier, more relaxed and now I am back to the miserable, fat, cold, tired, constipated, aching, pale person that I am now.
I have had it suggested that I am suffering from generalised anxiety disorder by my endo and I am considering accepting this diagnosis.
I feel like a complete hypochondriac with my symptoms and have no idea where to turn.
Thanks for reading.
