I've been on thyroxine since 2006, and finally had my thyroid regulated mid 2009. I have to take 75mcg and 50mcg on alternate days.
Despite this, my fibromyalgia did not get any better and I went on anti depressants for the third time in December 2009. I went on anti depressants because I couldn't cope any more. The anti depressants took away the muscle pain and lifted my mood. I was able to start voluntary work, started cycling, and basically started to enjoy life again.
A month ago, I decided to come off the anti depressant because I started to gain weight. Since I've been off them, I haven't had the muscle pain. The only thing is that my paranoia has crept back and I keep thinking that my close friends are plotting against me!! This was happening before I went on the anti depressants. I'm feeling like a total psycho. I've been really moody with my children and hate everyone around me.
I don't know what to do. If I tell my GP that i'm off the anti depressants, he will blame me and tell me to go back on them.
I really don't want to gain weight but I can't control my thoughts. Has anyone else been in a similar situation?
Is this depression a separate problem from my thyroid - that's what my GP says?
Please somebody......I hope there is one of you who knows what I'm going through..
