I've been on levothyroxine for 3-4 weeks now and feeling better. My free t4 was 4.4 and tsh was 100 so I know it's high and the gp told me to take it easy but I really want to back the gym and do some light cardio and swimming. It's my only chance to get away from the kids and de stress and stress is a major factor in thyroid disease isn't it? My resting pulse is 80bpm and I do get tired at night but other then that I feel fine. Is it really a risk to exercise when my thyroid is so poorly? I don't want to put myself at risk of a heart attack or anything. X
