From my previous posts I have Hashimoto’s and an underactive Thyroid I self medicate on T3 after trying Levothyroxine on the NHS.
I never did well on Levothyroxine so tried T3, I was doing well, but, my current dosage never relived all my symptoms, I’ve tried to up my dosage, but my body doesn’t like it.
I recently started having blocked ears, ringing in my ears, neck pain/stiffness and tension headaches (not all the time).
I struggled to get an appointment to see my GP despite phoning every morning at 8am.
The neck pain get so bad I went to A&E, I felt a fraud going as it wasn’t an emergency, but, my legs were like jelly, I was sweating and my ears were blocked and I couldn’t cope anymore with the pain despite having ibuprofen and paracetamols .
I saw a GP, who was fantastic, told me I had an ear infection (looked in my ears) and prescribed me antibiotics.
He did a series of checks on my neck incase I had meningitis and said the neck pain and headaches were related to my ear infection.
I’ve been on antibiotics since Sunday, but, I’m not convinced my ear infection is the cause of my neck stiffness pain. The pain in my head only happens when I move my neck or bent down etc, and it’s a sharp headache, so much so it makes me stop what I’m doing.
At first I thought I was having a Hashimoto’s attack, but I cannot see this ever going away. My ears don’t hurt, they are not sore, just blocked and ringing.
Has anyone experienced this with Hashimoto’s. ?
Any advice greatly appreciated
