I have tried to research the above problem that I have been having and I am not getting much info other than possibly T3 helping.
I was diagnosed in July 2011. I was in a state of myxedema with a TSH of around 350 and free T4 of 3.3.
Apart from the usual physiological symptoms which go along with being very hypo, I had numerous psychological symptoms. I have been told since then that I have to wait for the levothyroxine to work.
My deep depression has improved considerably, but I still have terrible memory problems, I have to make lists and put stickers all over the walls and write on my hand to remember things normal people take for granted.
Although I'm not as bad as before I can quickly fly off the handle and I feel like my blood is boiling.
I am obsessed with hygeine & cleaning things. (OCD)
I have to really concentrate to remember what year it is, it seems as if 1995 was yesterday, yet 2011 was years ago for example.
Also I am highly sexed.
None of these symptoms have gone away. Do I need to see a psychiatrist????
