I'm hypothyroid, I was diagnoised about 15 months ago but believe I'd been undiagnoised for some time.
Quite often I'd noticed a pattern of feeling as if I was getting a cold, feeling run down, fuzzy headed, tightening of throat and the feeling as if I'm getting a cough at times but then nothing comes of it.
I'm in one of those period's now and I've been like this since Christmas and feel as if I'm gradually getting worse. My sypmtoms at the moment are very vivid nightmare, having to go to the toilet at night, numbness in hands whilst asleep (and sometimes if I'm on the phone too long), breathlessness, tightness in throat, dry skin, hair falling out, I've had some periods of feeling very thirsty (and subsequently drinking alot and going to the toilet alot) and having headaches which seems to have settled down a little at the moment but I can't seem to concentrate on work and feel edgy, nervous and irriated and feel dizzy at times and I feel as if one of my eye's is dry and a little more fuzzy than normal; oh and how can I forget, difficulty with my bowl movements, I feel I need to go but struggle to and it's a bit uncomfortable and lighter in colour (sorry for the detail)
Some of these sypmtoms I know can be put down to Hypothyroidism and I'm due to have my next blood test on the 20th March as my GP wanted to monitor it at 6 months not 12 as I'd shown concerns at the last visit that my TSH results had increased over quite a short period of time resulting in my dose of Levothyroixine being increase from 50mcg to 75mcg. But should I be worried about there being some other underlying problem or if the mild cold like symptoms part of this along with the thirsty periods.
Any comments will be very much appreciated.
