Very frustrated at the mo, if I get out of my car and touch our metal gate I get a little jolt....this has also coincided with me suddenly starting to get cramp in my feet and achy muscles. My face has also gone very round, puffy and I've grown a double chin and the back of my throat always looks red, my brain fog is also getting worse.
I've only been diagnosed for just over a year and was feeling very well for around 5 months up until 4 weeks ago, since then I've steadily gone downhill and can't understand what has gone wrong.
I've been on levo for just over a year steadily increasing the dose.
My TSH has gone from 4.8 to 0.03 and my T4 is now 14 and I was positive for antibodies. Sorry don't know the ranges.
I've recently been suffering badly with anxiety, panic attacks, rapid heart rate and was advised to reduce my Levo from 100 to 75 and was also given Sertraline.
I have also been taking Vit D as i was deficient with a result of 20, Ferrous Fumerate and also B12.
I feel extremely depressed and low because I've gone from feeling okay to feeling lousy....also I feel like I can't breathe properly (already on Fostair pink inhaler).
I'm due to go back to the Doctor next week for more blood tests. Is there anything else I should be telling her or asking her ? Could it be an Adrenal problem or something else ? I must admit the electric shocks and cramps have got me baffled.
Can anybody share some words of wisdom please ?
