Hi, everybody! I would like to introduce myself and explain my health issues and hope you can help me.
I am a 29 years old Spanish girl. I was diagnosed with hypothyridism when I was 20 years old. My symptoms where very strong: night sweats, brain fogginess, extreme coldness, dry skin and hair loss, a tiredness which wasn't normal, and woke up every day as if I were hungover, even if I slept a lot.
When I first got treated with levothyroxine, I started feeling much better. But that lasted 2 years, after I had to upper the dose up to 75mcg, but I realised, the higher the dose, the worse I felt.
From last year, my symptoms have been crazy, diagnosed with fibromialgia, with migraines... and the fatigue is extreme, I don't have ANY mental clarity...
My doctor kept refusing to test my T3, so I got fed up and did the blood tests privately. The result: Free T3 too low, Reverse T3 too high, T4 ok.
But even with the results, they can't prescribe T3 as here is Spain it was totally banned years ago.
I am DESPERATE. As I know with the proper medication even my migraines and fibromialgia would probably go away.
I was going to go to Greece or Cyprus to get T3, and check up with blood tests how it worked for me. As I believe it is my only solution. But I found out here that now T3 there can be found over there any more...
I thought maybe Morocco? Maybe France? I don't have much money, so, if I happen to travel to a country and can get the meds... I'm gonna be devastated.
What could I do?
(Sorry about the long story ^_^)
