Hi can some one please help?
I’ve been unwell for the last three years with doctors unable to find a cause. My heart rate has slowed to 45-50 bpm, I have recurring left sided chest pain, my blood pressure keeps dropping through the floor, I’m cold to the touch but I am constantly saturated in a cold sweat. Recently I gained a stone in weight and my doctor decided to test my thyroid. Two days after the blood test I got a call from the doctors saying my thyroid function was low and I needed to pick up a prescription for levothyroxine.
I was told to take 1 x 25 mg a day and repeat the blood test in 6-8 weeks, which I did today. I asked the nurse what my results were and she said T4 was 8.8. I asked the ref range and she said 12-14 and I was only slightly out of normal range. She didn’t have any other figures. Can anyone offer me any advice please? The nurse made me feel like I was being a nuisance and I can’t get an appointment with my doctor for another 2 weeks!
I felt a bit better the first few weeks of taking the tablets but I’m starting to feel really poorly again and I’m feeling really lost 😂
