Would appreciate some feedback.
I was diagnosed a year ago with an under active thyroid and was put on a low dose of levothyroxine.
I have had constant health problems and asked for another thyriod test to be done which came back normal.
Because I am menopausal and have been very depressed the last year they keep putting all my symptoms down to that. I have never been so depressed before and it has lifted a bit where iam trying to get back to the gym. But when i went last week I felt drained and ended in bed for a couple of days on and off sleeping. this is my list of symtoms.
Cramps in legs and feet.
High blood pressure
Reocurring tirdness and feeling drained
Days where I sleep for hours and in out and out of bed.
Then I get nights where Iam contantly waking up.
Fuzzy head.. and there are days I wake up feeling very foggy and hard to focus and get on with my day.
Breathlessness ( on and off)
Low energy where I can't be bothered doing anything all day.
Iam sure there are more symptoms but basically my whole life has come to a standstill because there is never a week goes past I don't have one of these problems or most.
I feel that all the symptoms are not all depression related as I feel the ongoing problems are causing depression. As for Menopause they put me on HRT for several weeks and I still had nausea and tiredness.
Does this sound like Under thyroid that needs more tests??
