I was diagnosed with an under-active thyroid in april 2003, and after years of my doctor not listening to how i felt, i eventually was told that my t4 level was Zero and my TSH levels were 100 and the labs dont read them any higher than that so i will never know the true level my TSH had reached, i truely belive to this day that i as close to death, and not untill i walked in with my face swollen and my voice almost gone and my skin swollen and like a wax colour did my gp bother to check my bloods, i started on 25mcg and am now on 125mcg and the last two years of my life have been hell i am always at the doctors and always fobbed off my blood tests are now showing i am low in Zinc Iron CALCIUM Vitimin D and that my blood cells are larger than normal, and when i ask why they say its my diet yet i have never changed it and before this i never went to a doctor for anything. i now live with really bad pms my calf muscles ache and some days i cannot walk far, ( and i have two small children who i feel so sorry for as i dont do the same as other mums do) my back aches i have put on 2 stone that will NOT budge and i still have months where my hair drops out.
I am so very worried for my future health and for my kids, and no one ever listens the GPs just say its not medical its in my mind!!!!!! i cry alot on my own, and i will never stop trying to be well as long as God gives me the strength to carry on ( and do i need it !)anyone going through the same please mail me if you wish i think we should all get together and fight to be heard, this is a terrible illness that DOES NOT go away with the magic tablet, Good luck to everyone in their fight to feel well again,:headhurts::
