When Dr Vijay saw the blood test results, his first reaction is : You are OVER dose. WHY didn’t you come and see me EARLIER?!?
I’ve been complaining about body ache, fingers numbness, joins pain, gained 3kg of weight in 2 weeks, lack of energy to do anything, eyes tearing etc health problems…….. I thought I am just too tired and stressful Never ever cross my mind I have bounced to serious hypothyroidism condition.
Damn, my metabolism is extremely low now. My muscles are breaking down and cells never recovering ………. No wonder I am in pain all the time. I need to stop the neo-mercarzole treatment immediately and hope health conditions will get better in 2-3 weeks time.
For the record, I am experiencing thyroids levels swing twice in the past few months.
Prior to May 2012 – In Hyperthyroidism condition after a year of oral treatment. Decide to go for radioactive treatment.
June 2012 – In Control condition with 10 mg of neo-mercarzole.
July 2012 – Mild Hypothyroidism condition after the radioactive treatment.
Aug 2012 – Stop all the medication after one month of 5 mg of neo-mercarzole adjustment.
Sep 2012 – Condition start swing to Hyperthyroidism. Health problem surfaced..
Oct 2012 – Confirmed Hyperthyroidism condition after a month of body aching etc problem. Start the 20mg neo-mercarzole oral treatment in Mid Oct.
Nov 2012- Condition swing to Hypothyroidism due to too high dosage of neo-mercarzole. Body started to feel very uneasy and put on weight.
10 Dec 2012 – Condition get worst and stop all oral treatment after doctor consultation.
如我早点去见Dr Vijay,可能就不会发生在短短三个月内2次thyroids 荷尔蒙摇摆问题，而搞到现在周身疼痛和长期健康受损了。
我今天也特地为了眼睛长期流眼泪和之前右眼视线受损问题到ISEC见Dr Wong. 他说之前的问题解决不了，retina已有旧疤痕，不能治疗，只是如找到好的眼医师，可通过眼镜来改进视线。眼睛也只是长期干燥而流眼泪，小事一桩，滴眼药水就可，唯一的好消息是，我的左眼没问题。
