So after months of feeling unwell I have been diagnosed with an over active thyroid.
Doctor has referred me to a consultant. She has put me on a very low dose of tablets but I am not allowed to take them while I'm breast feeding! I'm torn as obviously I want to feel better but I really don't want to stop breast feeding. Has anyone else experienced this? I intend to wait a couple of weeks, then I will stop breast feeding & start the medication.
My symptoms have been -tiredness, unable to sleep, muscle weakness, anxiety, being very hot all the time, losing weight but eating loads, needing a poo every time I eat, loose bowels, headaches & low libido.
Are these pretty 'normal' symptoms of someone with an overactive thyroid?
I'm a bit shocked really, I don't understand why this has happened? Is it something I've done - poor diet etc?? Am I going to have it forever??
Feeling a little lost - any help/advice/experience would be gratefully received.
