I am a 39 year old woman.I have had my whole thyroid gland removed 3 months ago after being diagnosed with papillary cancer and then had the radioactive iodine pill treatment . Since then I am now cancer free and taking thyroxin of 150g a day and all my TSH,T4 and calcium are normal.
Unfortunately a month ago I started having awful hot flushes every half hour that even wake me up during my sleep and very intense migrains,hazy eyeside,neck and back pains as well as a bit of weight gain and lots of mood swings. Two weeks ago I had my blood tests that showed my FSH is 110 (normal is between 5-10) ,which could easily be for a 75 year old woman. I have missed my first period and its a shock to me as I was always very regular and normal with that.
It seems I am now in menopause and I am not sure what to do or what to take as I believe I am too young to start taking HRT from now ,but the worst part is I havent got any children, and if I ever decide to have any i will never be able to. If anyone out there has any advice or a similar story and can help in anyway please let me know.
I am seeing a holistic doctor next week to hopefully go on a natural kind of HRT(bio-identical), that will most probably help me.
My GP is hoping that my periods will come back and this is just a shock to my system after the iodine treatment.
Any advice will be much appreciated .
