In 2012 after having my 2nd child I was diagnosed with hypothyroid. I was so thankful to finally get some results after months of dr telling me nothing is wrong with me. It was a walk in Dr. who did lab work and diagnosed me. I was having symptoms like severe muscle weakness (at times I felt like I was going to collapse walking up 5 stairs, or drop my baby), fatigue, hair loss, irritable, confused, unable to concentrate. Just terrible and definately not like me at all. I would get blood work done every 6 weeks and every few months get a call to change the dose of my Synthroid. Sometimes results too low sometimes to high. In April 2014 I became pregnant with my 3rd child. Specialist doubled my synthroid while pregnant to .125 mg. I never felt better, the whole pregnancy I felt great. Energy, no hair loss, able to concentrate.
Now, my 3rd is 7 months old and I'm back to feeling helpless. I'm so irritable, hair is falling out, my body hurts so bad and my brain is so fogged. Bloodwork every 4 weeks. I am on .1 mg synthroid at the moment. My family dr says there is nothing I can do to get my thyroid back on track just says eventually it is going to 'burn itself out'.I dread going back to work fulltime in 5 months while raising 3 kids, I don't think I physcally and mentally have it in me. I feel like ripping my thyroid out myself.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I just want to feel normal again.
