I’m new to the forum and this is my first post.
I have been on Levothyroxine 50 for some four years now. But I have been very poorly, exhausted, unhappy, unable to think properly etc.
I’ve pressured my GP to have some blood tests (she said my TSH are within norm). My serum Ferritin is at 5.3 ug/L.
I feel dizzy very often, out of breath, with huge brain fog and weak in body. Heavy menstruation, feeling like my body is very heavy, but I’m not overweight. I’m 41 and have one child who is 6.
Could I please have some kind advice on what to do to help myself. I kind of need to find out myself.. my GP said “diet doesn’t mattet and.. Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s are treated same way so we don’t need to know what you have”.. which was not a good sign.
A note: I’ve not eaten meat for many years, but I eat fish. If necessary I am ready to eat meat again. Throughout the last years I have been addicted to black coffee, often drinking 5 or over cups a day. I have stopped a month ago entirely.
With all best wishes and many thanks for any help and advice.
