I had a post a while back that got to much for me at the time as I felt so poorly, I have made a lot of changes, like going gluten free, making sure I'm on the right vitamins, taking my thyroxine correctly every time, etc but I am feeling worse and worse.
I've had an increase from 75mcg to 100mcg after I had a reaction to a change from mercury pharma to te va, am on mercury pharma only now.
I have increase in numbness and tingling, exhaustion, low mood, constipation, hair loss, hair texture changes, snaps easily, brittle, coarse, terrible cystic acne, itching, dry skin, and feeling constantly freezing cold, short of breath, weight gain, chest pain, I dont eat a lot and still maintain my weight, which is not what I want, I have puffy face and look awful. I truly believe I need t3 or to come of thyroid Meds completely. I cannot do this anymore. I'm sick, fat and very tired and to top it off I have lost all interest and enjoyment in things, I cry at the drop of the hat, I'm not just depressed because I wish I could do these things and I'm trying so hard to feel better but this thyroid treatment is killing me. I'm off to see gp in about an hour, she increased my thyroxine on the basis of my t4 and tsh changing from last time although still in range, off top of my head, I will go and look at my previous post and update.
But tsh around 0.27 and t4 14.5
Tsh was before that 2.21 and t4 12
I don't think I'm converting well. The gp probably won't increase and will ask me to get a over thyroid test, so I will, I'm also getting a medichecks this week to see myself. But I want to start t3. Can anyone advise me how to ask gp for a referral to a endo or ask for a private script so I can buy it please? I know it's a long shot but I want to know a dr is monitoring me really due to my other conditions.
Thank you for your help
