I have been hyop for past 16 years and up to about 18 months ago have been quite well. I associate this with onset of the menopause. I'm on thyroxine 125. I am totally fatigued and any small exercise totally wipes me out. It takes me a long time to recover. My biggest problem is the feeling I get when I lie down at night. I feel as if I am going to die and frequently have to 'remind myself' to take a breath in.- this is worse if I am very tired. This is a very frightening experience and I usually spend most of the night sitting up. It's like I am running on an empty battery and is a horrible feeling.
I also have a small thyroid nodule diagnosed on scan over a year ago. I have never seen an endo although I have requested a referral twice. My GP referred me when the nodule showed up on the scan, but the endo came back to say no need to see me and just increased my thyroxine at that time without seeing me!! I'm waiting on a referral to respiratory consultant and have had cardiac thread mill test done and it was OK. Sorry for long post, but would like your views. Thanks so much.
