Hi really need some advice please.
I was recently diagnosed with Hypothyroidism and have not been able to get on with my life as I have been bed bound 7 weeks now. I have had 11 different blood tests done and the only one that came back with a problem was the thyroid which apparently is suppose to be at 12 but mine is at 11 ( I don’t know what this is suppose to mean). Going by the doctor this is not to low but have been put on 50mg of Levothyroxine and vitamins. I don’t understand why I still feel rotten and cannot even get out of bed most days or it takes all day to get up and I can’t do much anyway.
It was suggested I had a virus at the start hence the reason for feeling so poorly and the doctor had said this had affected my thyroid more. But I have so many symptoms sweating/cold, nausea, fuzzy head, bad concentration, short term memory problems, lethargic, weak, low mood, headaches, random hair loss, heart palpitations, loss of balance, aches and pains the list goes on. I feel so overwhelmed by everyday silly things and cry easily. My mood is also very low.
I have found this all pretty frightening as its been so ongoing for weeks now and the doctors have told me I have to wait a couple of more weeks until Levothyroxine 50mg kicks in, as I have only been on it 3 weeks.
I ended up in A&E the other night because when I stand for any length of time my heart races I break out in a sweat and get really breathless. The consultant thinks it possible ME/CFS.
I took depression last year and have had health problems all year round. From a degenerative disc in my neck and burning sensation in my shoulders. Every couple of weeks the nausea I suffer all year round gets worse and I end up in bed sweating and tired for a couple of days. At times I feel like my brain is soo foggy I have been drugged.
Does this sound like ME/CFS or Thyroid problems to anyone??
