I was diagnosed with hashimoto's hypothyroid in 2012, was on synthroid from Feb 2013 to Oct 2013. With my naturopath and GP, decided to try ERFA Thyroid (dessicated thyroid) b/c my T4 was not converting to T3 on the synthroid and I was having lots of days of crippling fatigue, nausea and cold/chills. Got a lot worse on the ERFA, now back on synthroid since a week ago.
I'm just so stressed because I'm not feeling any better, if anything it is getting harder and harder to stay awake each day. The only thing I can think of doing is sleeping. To do anything other than watch tv or be on the computer is too much. My anxiety has skyrocketed and a I feel like I am getting depressed again. My chronic migraine has flared badly. I just can't take it anymore! '
What if it is actually not the thyroid that is causing these, and I have some kind of other serious illness? I know that is not rational, I am just so scared of being so sick. Christmas is my favourite time of year, and I here am not able to enjoy it.
I'm sorry for the rant, had to get it out. Any words of wisdom and support would be much appreciated - I know you can't solve my problems but sometimes I feel so alone.
