I am 7 months PP and ever since I had my son I just have felt off. Not all of the time but I will have moments where I tremble and feel sick/weak/sweat. I thought it was low blood sugar and it does seem to help if I eat but sometimes it happens after I have eaten. I do suffer from anxiety and after I had by DS it has gotten much worse. I went to the doc and they ran blood tests and it all came back normal except I noticed that my TSH was 2 points from being below normal. I went in again and told her I still didn't feel good and she told me it was all in my head. Do you think I should see another doctor? These "episodes" I get are almost like a panic attack but they feel different than my normal ones....I can deal with my normal ones...but these are so much different. Could I have developed hypoglycemia after birth? or a hormone imbalance? or thyroid? or is it all in my head.....I'm so sick of dealing with this because I want to be done worrying and enjoy my life and my baby. Any suggestions?
Have you thought about taking an iodine supplement? I do that and I think it is helpful, although I'm still not "perfect" :)
You can just buy these inexpensive little iodine drops called Liqui-Kelp, don't take more than the bottle says but they are okay if you're also taking a vitamin/eating iodized salt. I realized my thyroid was also very close to being out of order when I saw the numbers on my pregnancy chart...I was irritated that the midwives didn't tell me, but it's easy enough to take iodine.
Since I started with the iodine, I lost most of my pregnancy weight in five or six months and now I weigh less than I ever did since college (I'm old)...while eating like a hog. Weight loss was not a big issue for me (not that I'm thin or anything), but it indicates that the iodine might be helping. Then again, my 17-month-old nurses like a fiend and has done since she was first born. Whatever, it's worth a try!
