I finally did it, took my first dose this morning of Thyroxine, was diagnosed with underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) back in late Feb but with so much happening at the time, I was unable to start taking my tablets.
Now I feel ready to commit to taking these every morning for next 6 weeks then I'll be going in for blood tests to see what progress I've made.
After reading up on all the symptoms etc hmmm explains a lot, this condition combined with very very low iron, vit D, vit B12 levels plus lymphoedema, no wonder I'm fighting an uphill battle - well, let's see how we go in next 6 weeks :)
At least it's a start! (posted on FB earlier today)
Strange though I've been reading a lot online on our health dept websites and it's ironic that a lot of the symptoms I've been experiencing this past year are the same for either hypothyroidism, low levels in vit b12, d and iron plus lymphoedema.. so will be interesting to see how things improve over time.
But I have to admit, I am somewhat relieved in knowing that there could be a real reason behind all my problems and that I could have a real chance in turning things around rather than believing the doctors when they tell me I can't be helped and to give up.
Anyway, dinner tonight was scrumptious as usual, we had homemade pizza's on light tortillas and was so filling.
We also had a small slice of Sara Lee Carrot cake which was so nice too.
Tomorrow hopefully if she's home early enough we'll be having a roast lamb dinner :)
