Was diagnosed with underactive thyroid 3 years ago had a lovely doctor lived in a lovely place went on Levo and it seemed to do the trick was going to the gym felt good.Then my husband got posted we moved to a not very nice place,my doctors are sick more than the patients so you never see the same one.My son could not get into the school nearest to us and then my husband went to Afghanistan and that's when the problems started.Anxiety which has become a vicious circle no matter how hard I try to relax I have a constant knot in my stomach.
Doctor checked my Tsh it was 4.73 so agreed to a higher dose my ft4 was 14.6 so increased my dose my Tsh came down to 0.012 my Ft4 was still only 14.7.
I have been taking b12 as it was 298 now apparently it's too high doctors wouldn't say what it was but I have a retest tomorrow along with liver function.
I have no idea where to start with trying to heal myself it's one step forward 2 back.
People say about cortisol levels,Vit D,Vit B,supplements etc my doctors are worse than useless I can't even change doctors as the doctors work on a boundary basis so I can only attend the one I'm at or one other who I've heard is equally rubbish.
I know I'm becoming health anxious as well as I'm currently looking things up convincing myself I've got god knows what.
Where do you all start on this long road to recovery should I start with vitamin tests?
Thank you Vanessa x
