Hi everyone this is my first time on here but I was looking for a site where I can talk to people. I am a 34 year old man and the only other people I know who suffer with thyroids are women so I wanted to get some advice from both sides.
I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism around 4 years ago and to say its been bad as been an understatement but with the support of my wife and kids behind me as been great.
the doctors started me on 50nmirogram of levothyroxine but now I am on 200 and still feel far from right which is frustrating to say the least.
I have been to the doctors so many times with complaint's and they have either up my dosage or lowered it the last time I had a blood test it came back as normal but when I went to see the doctors she told me that I was on to much and that was causing my anxiety levels to shoot up but I never got a phone call back stating this after my blood test.
I suffer massively with anxiety and depression and am on 50 micrograms of sertraline I am very happy with my wife and kids but in myself at times I feel awful ( so tired , emotional , sweats , low libido etc) just wondering if there is any advice for me out there.
I was going to ask the doctor if I can see a specialist but not sure if that is right and advice is welcome thank you.
