It's been two months since I started on medication for hypothyroid and I really feel like I've failed everyone, I started on 50mg Levo but I started to feel like I had concrete for muscles, unable to think clearly, head pressure etc among other symptoms so changed brands, the muscle pain eased a little but my brain fog remained and I started to feel really strange/detached mentally and it really concerned me. Throughout this time I have also been eating more fish and veg and supplementing with Vitamin D3 +K2 as my Vitamin D was a little under range. In this time I found out I had the DI02 defect so 2.5mg Lio was added to my dropped dose of 25mg Levo, the first few days I felt a tiny bit better where I felt like I could speak to people, however after those days things declined pretty quick again where I felt really odd mentally especially in the evenings like I wanted to get out of my own body. The mental aspects have concerned me so much I sometimes feel slightly schizophrenic, and so depressed that I couldn't even look at a car or anything without thinking, what If I just jumped in front of it? or ended it all now my suffering would be over, I have now decided to drop the T4. The muscle pain, head pressure and mental aspects seem to have subsided, but the 2.5 T3 also makes me feel overmedicated and sick so I am wondering whether I should just have a break and focus on vitamins maybe?
I understand I need patience and I won't feel better immediately, but my new symptoms have worried me so much I felt for the sake of my family and relationship that I need to have a break in my medication. I don't understand why I have so little willpower over this disease, I wonder if something else is going on and that's why things are getting so much worse, I've had to quit my job and I have hardly been able to go anywhere further than the shop up the road. Sorry for such a long post but I really feel like no-one can help me but myself and I really don't have the willpower. All my latest results are below.
