Energy and motivation?
Hey everyone my name is Ferrari and I currently live in Toronto, Canada! First of all I’d like to say hi and hope everyone is in good health. I would like to share my story. After suffering for many years with fatigue and depression I was finally diagnosed in summer 2015 with hypothyroidism after feeling sick and having vertigo and migraines. I was given a generic levothyroxine named eltroxin which made my symptoms worse. When I say worse I mean I was disabled with horrible fatigue vertigo and suicidally depressed. I changed my doctor and got a hashimotos diagnosis. I got switched to synthroid and quickly learned my body is sensitive to synthroid. I was given a 0.075 mcg dose and began having hyper symptoms (remember I’m hypo) now I’m on 0.025 mcg it’s been a week and the hyper symptoms are going away slowly. My main issues right now are depression and apathy. I feel whatever about life and don’t have energy to do jack squat. I have been reading about cytomel (t3) and how it helps hypothyroidism patients who struggle with depression also. My question is the doctors here aren’t very helpful or cooperative. How can I get that prescribed to me? Also how can I get LDN prescribed? Most doctors don’t know about it here. What have people done here for energy and motivation? Thank you!
