Mumsnet hasn't checked the qualifications of anyone posting here. If you have medical concerns, please seek medical attention; if you think your problem could be acute, do so immediately. Even qualified doctors can't diagnose over the internet, so do bear that in mind when seeking or giving advice.
Hoping fir some good recommendations.
Am at complete burnout point currently, relentless 24/7 care for high complex special needs DC (6) since before lockdown on top of everything else - feeling drained, wiped out and generally low on energy a ghost of my normal self.
I take levithyroxin daily and a few painkillers, along with well woman and Vitamin c but this just isn't enough.
What should I try please?
Main concerns are extreme exhaustion, lack of focus, and overly dry skin....
Any advice would be much appreciated
These. I was like a new woman within a week.
I also take thyroxine but hypothyroidism can go hand in hand with low iron, Vitam D deficiency & vitamin B 12 deficiency (all of which I have) so it might be worth a chat to a GP & have some blood tests before you start supplementing because if you are taking anything you won’t get your true levels.
A Vitamin B complex has perked me up before. I was taking it as we were thinking of TTC (went onto folic acid rather than the b complex once we did start) but noticed a huge improvement I how I felt. Which I was not expecting!
