A Blog For Those Affected By Environmental And Invisible Illnesses Written By Fellow Survivors
Blog posts tagged in thyroxine
A friend of mine forwarded me this site as I don't have the internet at home and don't have much time to explore at work, I have been fighting my right to health for over two years!
Although I had almost every single symptom and a family history of hypothyroidism my doctors wouldn't treat me until I reached '10' [for TSH] on their stupid scale. I put on 3 stone, had symptoms too numerous to mention and thought I was going crazy! On the 2nd September 2008, I final reached this goal, then and only then did she Say "You will be glad to know we can treat you now." I was angry, disgusted and seething but took my T4 gladly at first, they made me very ill while I took them for seven months, until I'd really had enough of all the debilitating symptoms.
Still gaining weight and very few if any...
