| | taking synthroid and still feeling bad
Hello ev1, Im new to this, so I hope Im doing this right..
Here is my story, at the beggining I was misdiagnosed and treated for different things, especially for depression. About 5 years of dealing with different drugs for depression and not working they noticed I developed a goiter. So I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism, I started taking synthroid and some symptoms did get much better, but not all. Now 7 years later and still fighting to understand if I have something else on top of my hypothyroidism, I found out today from my specialist that there is a small percentage of people that still feel all the symptoms while taking synthroid. All my blood work seems to be off at times. when ever Im feeling bad it comes out off and then they do some more tests and it comes out normal.. all this without me doing anything. To me it makes sense in a way because its the way I feel. It seems to be like riding a rollercoaster. For a couple of weeks I feel awesome, energized and start new excersice routines and I just feel great, ... bad thing is that it never last, usually after a week or so I start feeling more and more tired, then my joints start hurting badly to the point its hard to walk, bad contipation that nothing seems to make it better, depressed and most of all so tired that I cant even think or concentrate to do anything. All this usually lasts for a couple of weeks aswell and then it goes away and Im back feeling great, the same cycle starts over. Its been since the beggining, its so frustrating and its just I dont know.. I really dont know what else to try or do. So I was wondering if anyone out there has experience the same, and if they've tried anything to make it feel better, and if it has worked. At this point I guess Im feeling pretty down today mostly because of what they've told me. I just have to deal with it, because there is nothing they can do. any help would be greatly appreciated. thank you,
