underactive thyroid taking thyroxine still tired

Hi
I have been diagnosed with underactive thyroid for over 5 yrs now presently I am taking 125gm of thyroxine everyday, the doctor has done a blood test recently which has come back normal. I still feel tired, low and withdrawn find difficult to walk out of the house without a purpose and indecisive I am still overweight even though my job requires me to do a lot of walking, I have also developed alopecia. I would appreciate anyone can help me I had to change my career because my doctor took nearly 2 years to diagnose me, which resulted in stiffness in bones, depression and other symtoms ensuing in me leaving a career in IT with a high salary importantly which I enjoyed. Thinking about my past how different it would have been if he did a simple blood test makes withdrawn. Everyday I try to find something positive to help me through the day

Hi,

Sometimes if the test results come back on the lower end of normal, then you can still be having underactive symptoms such as you are having. I think they are considering changing the range as it's too wide right now. Get your doctor to print out your results and check them on the net to see if your results are at the lower end.
What time do you take your Thyroxine? I was told to take mine in the morning but read up that it's actually better absorbed if you take it before you go to bed. Also having coffee/caffeine around the time of taking your Thyroxine can affect absorbtion by up to 50 percent.

I hope it helps. Goodluck.

Presently I am taking 125gm of thyroxin even though the blood test came normal I still feel tired, low and withdrawn find difficult to walk out of the house without a purpose and indecisive I am still overweight, also any argument or negative (emotional) thoughts makes me feel withdrawn and useless, recently I’ve developed alopecia on my chin and back of my head also pain all over my back and body

I feel suspicious about everything I find difficult to make time for everything I can’t relax I need to work if sit for long I pains and tiredness overpowers me.

I feel like I want to get away from every problem and everyone and just be myself where no one can judge me

5. When did it all start? Can you connect it to any past event or disease?
Far as I can recall feeling of tiredness started from when I was 12. When I started my high school I got in a embarrassing situation and quite a few classmates saw it from then on I felt the whole school were sniggering behind my back and if anyone became my friend it was because they wanted something or help with their work I was a fairly intelligent student also easy going that helped in pupils wanting to get close to me. I always feel as if everyone is observing me even now. I have tried to switch off negative thoughts all my life whilst getting my degree, facing rejection in interviews building couple of businesses but it’s getting harder now I want to be closer to my wife and my children. Upton age of 30 I felt I am unlucky to everyone around and to myself but at the moment it is not as bad my children give me strength then I start thinking negative things about them about their lives which I do not want to do. From when I was 6 yrs I was always told your too shy or someone else is better than you I was never good in front of my parents in my teenage years my dad lost his job we struggled financially then he suffered from meningitis when I was 17 looking back there was very few happy moments in that sense of appreciation or tender moments with any adults be parents or relatives (uncle, auntie)

1 pm – 3 pm

Falling out or arguing with close family and friends. Seeing my family happy exercising being valued

Fell out with my mum and dad because of a situation they encountered with my younger brother even though I advised them otherwise. They are reluctant to seek my opinion even though I have experience in certain field more than others they will rather listen to other siblings.

Moody – mostly with people close to me. Arrogant- when trying to get things across to people as I ‘m not assertive. Agreeable, Changeable, lazy –sometimes, sarcastic, optimistic, anxious, I try to avoid confrontation or arguments instead I just breakup friendship or move on.

I love my family and I want to give my children the best upbringing and all the things I did not get my wife is very supportive and I love her a lot even though I am not as expressive as she wants me to be we tend to argue quite often lot of the time is my fault most of the time it’s because I don’t know how to relate to it like instead of coming across with sympathy I come across aloof and end up lecturing on how to solve the problem, which she is not really seeking. I also have similar problem with my friends as I’m thinking I don’t really know them.

2/. Do not touch the tablets with your hands, tip them into the cap of the container they came in and then into the water .
3/. Avoid coffee, tea (including green), and other sources of caffeine such as some fizzy drinks and large amounts of chocolate, except where this would cause a drastic change in consumption
