As some of you may know from reading some of my past postings I have been suffering from hypothyroidism for the last 2 1/2 years now let me tell you it's been a nightmare I have been in and out of the hospital for the past two years suffering from heart palpitations chest pain high blood pressure numbness in hands and feet. I'm going to tell you that I'm about to lose my mind . I have been prescribed every type of medication you can think of from high blood pressure to anxiety to sleep insomnia to pain medication. My primary doctor thinks I'm crazy so she referred me to a psychiatrist and my psychiatrist has prescribed me three more medications . So I must say over the course of two years I have been prescribed about 25 bottles of medication. I know that's a lot but I was smart enough not to take all that medication. So I've been doing some research and this is what I have come up with please let me know if anyone else out there feels the same . My thyroid was ablated in 2015 . So I said to myself I need one medication that will supplement what I lost with my thyroid instead of 25 medications being prescribed to me to make up for the symptoms I'm having due to ablated thyroid.I think that makes a lot more since. Because what I have been experiencing is too much medication to supplement my thyroid loss which is making me miserable. Now I have tried levethyroxine and Synthroid but It didn't work for me maybe because it only contains T4 and I may need something that has both T3 and T4 . Now prior to my diagnosis in 2014 I never had any blood pressure issues or cholesterol issues I always ate pretty healthy and worked out quite often . But all of a sudden I lose my thyroid everything is out of whack . I just feel I'm on way too much
medication and something needs to be done every time I talk to my endocrinologist she tells me my TSH is not high enough for thyroid medication because it's always 5. +. Now that I've been researching and thinking about all the medication I have I think I need to try a thyroid medication is there anyone else out there that feels the same please let me know i'm suffering . I have lost so much behind this my five-year relationship almost my job and my happiness I need help.
