I have received my blood test results so can someone please tell me what I should publish in order for the forum to assist me? I logged my issues recently. Doctors state I am in the 'normal' range whatever that is!! After three years I am now walking like I am 75 pain is constant in my legs I have gained 6 stone, my hair is falling out, i feel lethargic and sleepy almost all the time, I cant walk too far because i get breathless and my feet and knees hurt, my skin is dry and patchy and I feel like giving up on this diagnosis of under active thyroid complicated by menopause!!! I just want to feel better. I want to lose weight and enjoy my life and play with my grandchildren, I am 58 but feel 78! Please can someone advise me on what I can do? We have recently relocated and I have an opportunity to see whether a new GP is more helpful than the last one. Have not seen an endocrinologist since early 2011 when they signed me off. I take 75mcg of levothyroxine daily. Ozmeprazole 40mg per day Ranitidine once at night (all due to high level of acid reflux). I was also told I had a severe vitamin D deficienbcy so took calcium forte vit D for two years but have now been told I am fine. Really?
I have stopped HRT after 14 years and now suffer terrible night and day sweats which I have somewhat relieved by taking Boots branded Menopause Night and Day tablets. But I still have zero energy and have significant difficulty in walking for long periods and I have already been diagnosed with Carpal tunnel in both wrists (severe in the right hand). Any advice assistance would be greatly received.
