I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism 2.5 years ago and put on Levothyroxine 25mcg, then 50mcg and eventually 75mcg. However, in March 2015 I became really unwell, so was eventually referred to an Endocrinologist who put me on a new medication (Liothyronine), which did not improve my symptoms sufficiently, so he also put back onto Levothyroxine (75mcg) as well. I had my Adrenal glands tests and told that although the levels were slightly low, they were not the cause of my problems. So, after further blood tests, my Endo' confirmed my results were now within the normal range, therefore the symptoms I was still experiencing of fatigue, joint pain, shakiness/tremors and headaches must be occurring due to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or M.E.
I think it is too coincidental, that my thyroid levels were low, my adrenal gland test showed a low production of adrenalin, yet as I am still suffering it must be CFS or ME.
Has anyone else experienced these problems or something similar? Or can anyone give me any advice on the situation I find myself in. I am at my wits end as I have been off work since March 2015 and am so desperate for this to be sorted out once and for all to be able to return to work and normal life. If I cannot get to the bottom of my problems soon I know my employer, who has been absolutely fantastic, will decide to medicallly discharge me from my employment.
