Ok I've been diagnosed with HypOthyroid for 3 years now, worked up to 100mg levothyroxine.
I've just had some new bloods done, because the main symptoms are getting bad again.
Brain fog, insomnia, very stressed ( even though I have reason to be) and crucially the pain in my wrists and hands which was what I was finally thyroid tested for!
It seems my thyroid is bang on the money as far as dosage goes, but I am on the borderline going from pre diabetes into full diabetes.
As such GP has recommended a crash diet, to hopefully swiftly drop me into pre diabetes area.
I'm also anaemic and that's sure as hell not helping, fainting feeling weak ,and I have made the choice to stop driving as I just do t trust my body not to let me down.
I am going in 10 days to have GTT and loads of blood checked for B12, ferritin and other stuff, to establish why I'm anaemic etc.
In the meantime , I truly feel horrendous and I do t want to take any iron vitamins, as that may mask why I am anaemic.
Should say I eat properly so I would imagine I'm getting the appropriate bits from diet.
Is there anything I can do? Apart from the obvious of just rest when I need and be kind to myself, as I honestly feel absolutely bloody awful!
Any help gratefully received
