First appointment to see endo and i was excited as my health has been getting worse, I thought this is it im going to get sorted and feel better, this year is going to be good for me and my family, how wrong was i? I have been ill for about five yrs in that time ive been back and fourth to the doc with diffrent symptoms but she kept saying it was caused by depression so for the first few yrs had me on anti-depressents which i told them i didnt need as i had no reason to be sad and down. At that time i had just got married to a wonderful man and was meant to be happy which i was but it was being dampered by my illness. In the end i typed all my symptoms into my laptop and it came up with under active thyriod so i went back to my docs i had blood tests and found out i had hashimotos disease, i was so relieved, i knew i was ill all along and now i had proof.. That was last feb and i was put on levothyroxine my health has been getting worse and im now on 100mcg but still feel ill and have lots of symptoms. I took a list of these to the endo appointment yesterday, he didnt even read them or the notes i had made he said that my meds were enough and that there was no pill he could give me to make me better i had some blood tests and he said if they come back normal he would be writing to my doctor to advise that i see a psychiatrist, that was it i broke down and couldnt believe what i was hearing. i dont know much but what i have learned is that there is NO NORMAL everyone is different. My symptoms are getting worse and i dont know what to do. Im coming down with migraines,neck aches,weight gain,carpel tunnel, plantars fasciitis,tiredness,hot and cold intolerance,hair loss,sore gums,muscle weakness,mood swings,memory problems,loss of peronality,withdrawal from everyone and everything,irritable,agitated, simple everyday tasks just seem so hard and ive had thoughts of ending my life but could never as ive a 10yr old son that needs me.Its not my life anymore, im not me... I just want the old me back and dont know how.... Any thoughts?????
