Ive documented some of the health struggles I’ve experienced over the past and most recently over the year and a half of living here. Last I found that I was having under-active thyroid and hormone imbalance specifically low testosterone. This last follow up my doc checked my thyroid levels and also my hormone levels. Though I was actually put on a very low dose of thyroid medication, my thyroid levels went down even more. This is quite unsettling, as its only been about two month that I was on the low dose. So I can only imagine what it would have been like if I had not been on any hormones. Here’s a list of my symptoms:
Hormone imbalance (low testosterone)
Non existent libido
Unexplained weight gain
Vasculitous (on my shins)
So he’s increased the hormones to triple the dose and also is thinking of doing an ultra sound on my thyroid to see if that can tell us anymore. Unfortunately the waiting is the hardest because everyday I cannot function normally is one more reason I become depressed and plagued with a feeling of failure. I am just praying that he is able to find an answer to some root cause that I can at least learn about and we can attempt to fix. Update in about a month.
