I was diagnosed many (10 ) years ago. My GP has finally started treating me more appropriately. However... I have also, for years had sever menstrual cycles, with very heavy flow, painful cramps, irregular cycles, mood swings, throat pain and migraines. All of these things have been increasing in frequency and severity. ( periods are every 1-2 weeks, migraines are 3+ weekly) My GP has been addressing these things individually, but I'm starting to believe that they are all related. My GP has been tracking my thyroid levels ever 1-3 months, and adjusting meds (levothyroxine and Cytomel) as needed. I haven't put together yet how all the symptoms fit with my blood levels, but I do believe it is all related. Should I see an endocrinologist, or stick with my GP. I've become sooooo aggravated with the menstrual cycles, that I have consulted an OB/GYN for a hysterectomy. But if we can correct it with my thyroid, that would be much easier. Also if I could get relief from my headaches, I would be a new woman! I am a single mom of a 3 year old, I am not allowed to bury my head when it hurts, and the Rx meds for migraines make me feel almost worse. So I do what I can, and have to deal with all the physical, emotional effects of a BAD period when ever it decides to show up... my poor little boy, needs a sane mommy that can play with him rather than wincing every time there is a noise or a light turned on. Please help!!!! Where do I go? Where to start?
