I am 40 years old and over the last 6 months have been diagnosed with depression, iron deficient anemia and perimenopausal. I was depressed - no doubt about it and the medication is helping however the other symptoms I have are beginning to make me wonder if maybe I'm being treated for the wrong condition. I have put on at least 15 pounds in the last 6 months, I am always cold; I am so tired even after a good nights sleep that my arms and legs feel like they are made of lead, I had my period for 52 days:eek:; I have night sweats, inexplicable sore muscles and cramps too (particularly in my feet!) I am constipated (though that could be from the iron and cymbalta) and boy am I crabby!!!! Now, I keep taking these pills cymbalta, prometrium, collace and over the counter iron AND LET'S NOT FORGET THE IBUPROFEN FOR THE HORRIBLE HEADACHES. Did I mention that the nurse called and said my thyroid level was slightly elevated and the DR. wants to recheck in 6 months? Has anyone ever had this experience? Any suggestions? Should I recheck levels sooner? Continue taking all these meds? What does that mean - slightly elevated? HELP - I HATE FEELING THIS WAY!!!!Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
