I have been on 100mcg thyroxine for about 15 years. Has alleviated some symptoms but last 3 years I have been feeling so tired, achey joints, breathless, unexplained fever at night. Doctor just says thyroid function fine, are you depressed? No. This time I insisted on more tests, so I have low vitamin D low iron, high cholesterol and slightly high blood sugar. I should mention I am not particularly overweight, eat a healthy diet, have a horse so outside all the time, and have an active lifestyle. I am going to take high dose Vit D and iron supplements for 3 months.. has anyone else taken these supplements? And do you feel better once levels are normal?
I don't think that taking the Thyroxine actually take all of the symptoms away. I wish doctors would listen and stop putting all unexplained symptoms down to depression.
