I have low thyroid for 8 years.
I now have to use a stick to walk, have severe IB, severe pain in muscles and joints, and depression. There are days I can’t get out of bed, or climb the stairs.
I am seeing an NHS occupational therapist for pain management.. My GP has been supportive but has said there isn’t much more he can offer and that I have had a lot of help already.
I am a single mum to a 13 year old with disabilities and really worried about what happens next and if there’s any other avenues open to me in the NHS and if there isn’t just how to cope and get my head round the fact that I am increasingly less and less able.
