Hi, I have been taking thyroxine 50mg for several years and every so often i run out of the thyroxine and a week may go by before i restart it. I had a week waiting for the new prescription last week and i restarted 5 days ago. I feel really really ill, sore throat with a lump feeling when swallowing, ongoing bad head, my neck glands are right up and i have been perspiring to a degree all this week - these symptoms remind me of when i had glandular fever as a child - i have worked as a community carer all week and some how have just kept going and being a single parent etc. Could these symptoms be anything to do with my thyroid? I have never really noticed my thyroid until the dr said it was borderline underactive several years ago apart from being overweight and feeling tired.
I would be grateful for some advice as it is friday and i have collapsed on the sofa unsure if it is just a virus or the thyroid medication?
