I cannot figure out why I have such little energy lately.
When I wake up it feels like it takes all of my effort to lift my limbs and get up. All of my muscles seem to hurt constantly. I have been very depressed lately, crying all the time, feeling totally useless, and really horrible about the way I look. I'm not so depressed that I'm suicidal (I like being alive) but I'm pretty incapacitated by all of it. I've also been having really bad anxiety issues lately. I cannot stop getting extremely stressed out and panicky about everything, and I've been having crazy mood swings, too. I don't know why I've taken such a step back from the progress I have made with my depression and anxiety issues. Usually there is some sort of trigger but things have been pretty calm for me lately.
I have also had horrible allergies lately, which gives me brain fog, make my ears all clogged, glands swell, and eyes all irritated and blurry. My blood sugars have been pretty good despite all of this, but I seem to be angrier and more irritable than normal when I am running high and I seem to be getting more emotional when I am having lots of swings in BG.
I've been taking my vitamins everyday like I always do, but did add in a higher dosage of B12 and Vitamin D two days ago to see if that would help. They seem to help for a few hours but then I feel like crap all over again. Maybe the allergies are triggering all of these depressed feelings and overall discomfort?
All I know is that a lot of these symptoms seemed to subside after starting thyroid medicine and I'm not sure if the problem is that it isn't as effective as it was a few months ago so I'm having symptoms return, or it is just something else. However, my recent blood work did show my TSH went down a LOT after starting the thyroid medicine but my free t4s are still on the lower side of normal and haven't changed as a result of taking the medicine, so maybe that has something to do with it? Could it really be making me feel SO bad though?
Any suggestions? Any tests I should try to get a doctor to run? Any beneficial vitamins or allergy treatments that might make all of this better? I really don't know what to do or what else to try so I can get some relief.
