I had a total thyroidectomy about 9 years ago. The last year, I've had severe fatigue, muscle weakness (especially in my legs), and dizziness. I just had my TSH checked and it was 2.02. I've been on 88 mcg. of Levothyroxine for quite a while. I just saw a new Endo and when I told her about the fatigue, she just said, "Who isn't tired these days?" She also had my adrenal cortisol checked and it was 24. She said that was on the border and she wanted to see me in six months.
The muscle weakness is so bad that I can't stand for too long. I'm laid off and don't know if I'll be able to return to a full time job. My legs are so weak that if I have to stand in a grocery line too long, I have to leave. Is this normal to have such muscle weakness? Could it be some kind of vitamin deficiency? Also, I've been getting dizzy for the past few months. I have to lay down all the time. I get especially dizzy when walking around in the stores or driving.
I take 2,000 B12, Vitamin D, & magnesium. I'm not on any other meds.
Is anyone else who is hypothyroid having muscle weakness, fatigue, and or dizziness? If so, what did you do about it.
Thanks so much.
