I am having some horrible symptoms am seeing my gp regarding them but seem to be getting nowhere fast, does anyone on here have any experience they can share, I have extreme sweating, fatigue, painful lower back worse in the morning, thirsty (think this is related to the sweating), anxiety, under active thyroid, sometimes goes slightly over active, am on thyroxine, duloxetine, betahistine and combined contraceptive pill, I just want to feel normal again, haven't felt well since having my dd 5 years ago, any help totally appreciated.

You are on a cocktail of drugs there: an anti-depressant, an anti-veritgo drug and the combined pill as well as thyroxine. The pill will certainly affect your thyroid hormone levels and to be honest it sounds to me as if you may have adrenal fatigue related to poorly controlled auto-immune thyroiditis over a period of time.

This is outside the scope of the average GP and, regretfully, the average endocrinologist as well. You may need to look at a website like to get an idea of how this all works.

Do you have any recent test results?
