I believe the Oestrogen in the HRT prevented my Thyroxin from working.
I had full blown symptoms of hypothyroidism after taking this form of HRT (Premique) for about 6 months I think. Two weeks ago I went to the doctors thinking I had ME and she told me to stop taking the HRT. Also it raised my blood pressure to a high reading so that the doctor was considering pills to control it.
After two weeks of being HRT free I have lost 3lbs (A major accomplishment!) and feel alive again. I was so depressed and weak on HRT.
