It's a fairly long story but I need help and advice please ladies as I'm in a bit of a state.....
It all began last August 2013 when I went to the GP with internal tremors and intermittent periods.
After having bloods checked I was told that I was hypothyoid and started on 50mcg of levothyroxine.
My periods were coming once every 3/4 months.
My last period was in March of this year. I had my FSH tested and the first time was high but was retested and told it was normal. While all this has been going on I developed a very weird and quite distressing bitter taste in my mouth (last November). I tried all sorts to eliminate it from mouthwash to totally changing my diet etc.... I added in multivits and B12 and by May time this year it seemed to have faded..... To be replaced by tinnitus!! Once again, I've been thoroughly checked (including an MRI) but no cause has been found and I'm told to learn to live with it....
What I'm wondering is....am I in the menopause and if so, are these symptoms connected? Apart from missing periods, I have no other menopausal symptoms such as sweats/flushes etc..
I feel at a loss as to what to do next??
Oh, I also have a vit D deficiency but the GP just told me to get out in the sun more....
So if anyone can help me please, I'd be so grateful. The taste is back again now and I'm increasing my B12 but it is horrible and all consuming
The tinnitus scares me when I think I've got to live with this for the rest of my life :'(
I'm only 44 btw.
I think that's everything but I might have missed something!
I increased my levithyroxine to 75mcg a couple of months ago as it was thought my TSH was still a little high. It is now 1.2
Thank you xxx
