Thyroid problems . . . again

Not been blogging much lately.  I havent felt well for a while and to cut a long story short have an underactive thyroid, this is as a result of treatment for an overactive thyroid about 13 years ago.  It has been well controlled but not lately.  Anyway I feel really unwell.

G.P has upped my medication however, it will still take 6 weeks for me to feel better.  I have also had a sore throat for ages and I have been given medication for that. If it hasnt cleared up in 2 weeks I will be referred to ENT at the hospital.

I will try and blog more but to be honest its all I can do to get out of bed and go to work in the morning.  I do miss blogging.  See you soon.


  1. Get well soon - sounds like you are really struggling - love,prayers and hugs xx

  2. I had been on thyroxine for about 12 months. I was cold all the time, had dry flaky skin, and could not lose any weight even with a strict diet and exercise.I have been taking desiccated bovine thyroid for about a monthh now. My skin is not nearly as bad than usual.
