Hi.I am new here. Thank you for accepting me to the Group. I hope someone can Help me.
I have been taking Levothyroxine since I was 18yrs old. (now 56). No side effects. Regularly monitored by G.P. (on 100mg). Suffered a Breakdown in 1999 when my only child died very suddenly. (The day before his fourth Birthday - (Myocarditis). Been on & off Anti-depressants since then. In June 2017 I developed a skin condition & have been under a Dermatologist ever since. (Red, Itchy & very painful, only affects my arms). Had every treatment going, every cream etc. no relief. Tried alternative/natural remedies, still no relief . Biopsy in Nov 2017 - results normal.??? Tested for Celiac Disease.(normal). Diagnosed Low Vitamin D. Started supplement Dec 2017. Diagnosed with Fibromyalgia/Arthritis Dec 2017. Started Amitriptyline 20 Jan 2018 (50mg at night). Skin condition worse then ever. In constant pain and totally exhausted. Average 3-4 hours sleep a night. I have joined a Slimming group & have lost 2st 3lb in 8mnths. Do not drink Alcohol but I do smoke.(Trying to cut down). I eat healthy. Awaiting for appointments to see Physiotherapy, Pain Management & Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. Not much more I can do. Does anyone else suffer with severe skin conditions or allergies whilst taking Amitriptyline & Levothyroxine? Now clutching at straws, desperate to find some relief. Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated.
