Hi everyone, I posted on here for the first time around August and received some great help. I would like to ask for more help please. Since this Thyroid problem has all come to light I have been reading and learning since then really. I thought I was actually diagnosed but when I went back to GP after three weeks he said he was trialling 25mg Levothyroxine and wanted to know how I felt. Well unless those tiny pills are packed with dynamite I thought 3 weeks was a bit short! Anyway I’m due another battery of bloods mid October to confirm this I suppose. GP said I had autoimmune which if I’ve read properly is Hasimoto’s and this is what has attacked my thyroid.
Now, I have been ill with cold and flu like symptoms on and off since August, if I get up in the middle of the night I can’t seem to make my joints work easy I’m 55 but it’s as if I’m 85, my throat constantly feels a bit swollen tight and bruised, I ache, I seem to have lost the spring in my step (much to the disgust of my dobermans), my poor husband just gets snapped at, my bloody hair is coming out more than it used to although not as much as 2 months ago, and any motivation I had had got up and gone. Is this normal I feel very low and tearful at the moment.
I have just re-read this post I am so sorry to wine but I have nobody around me who understands and I don’t know if this is what it’s going to be like or not. On a plus I am going gluten free and I feel that is helping my stomach area is beginning to slowly settle.
Thank you for reading this wine Kay.
