My story is long,but, I will try to make it short. About a year and a half ago, I got sick with chronic sinusitis. Within a five week time span, I experienced panic attacks ( unusual for me), worsening fatigue, scent sensitivity and I was scared.
One morning, I woke up and quickly felt all my strength leave my body!!
I've been trying to regain my strength since then. I had a couple illnesses during this time witch caused me strength relapses.
I fell into full menopause during this time as well. My last cycle happened just after I got sick with the sinusitis.
I had my hormones checked last December. It proves I was definitely in menopause. My new Obgyn was shocked that I was only recommended to her then!
She had me on a low dose of estrodial (transdermal patch), and 100mg of progesterone. This was doubled the following month since I was still suffering alot. My blood work did also show me with a high level of TSH (3.71). My Obgyn said this is a good sign, as it may help explain why I am still so low in energy. She is seeing me in April again, and is having me do another TSH test just before I see her again.
I read that this is a subclinical hypothyroidism. My mother has had hypothyroidism since about my age (47 ).
My thing is, I am so tired of feeling so low in strength. My life has been terribly compromised. I had to quit my job when all this happened. How can I make it through another two months before I see my Obgyn?
I have a naturopath as well, but, he never said much about my TSH level. What can I do??
