Should have asked for community advice a long time ago as things have just gone from bad to worse. I don’t have my full blood work with me today, but a post is long overdue because I just feel so down.
My last TSH was 1.3 and since then I have upped my daily medication to 125mg Thyroxin (from 100) at my doctor’s recommendation to combat excessive weight gain.
1.3 TSH felt hyper for me and now I am sure I have gone too far as I am exhausted, have joint pain, am loosing heaps of hair, am angry and am depressed.
When I first became hyper the doctor misdiagnosed the symptoms as postpartum depression which was *****. But not long after that I could see a lump in my throat and I had a TSH of 14 and those symptoms were similar to the ones I have now.
I have been getting bloods every 6 weeks and the journey from hyper to hypo has been mostly about weight. But now I have exploded into unhappiness. I was on a T3/T4 combo and didn’t feel bad on that but stopped because I put on a lot of weight in the 8 weeks I was on it.
The best I felt was when I was on100mcg carbmizole to bring my TSH down from 14. This was heaven and I lost heaps of weight. It was only for 4 weeks and post operation my TSH was 5.4. I then went straight onto hypo treatment and haven’t been right since.
I honestly thought having more T4 would be good.
I just want to go off my medication for a while and be a good Mum to my small kids.
