Was diagnosed hypo about 2 years ago, after being treated for depression for years. Saw my dr, cos I basically had felt so bad for so long I'd had enough. My bloods came back borderline, but because my sister and my nan were both hypo I managed to persuade the doc to prescribe levothyroxine, started on 50, and felt great for the first time in years. Shame it didn't last. In jan this year I was rushed into hospital with horrific heart palpitations (very scary) outcome of this was to up my tabs to 75 per day. So here I am now completely exhausted again, severe pins and needles and numbness in my fingers and feet, blood test booked for next Tuesday, and let's see what happens this time !!!!! Wish I could just have my life back, the one where I was funny, full of life, without the constant mood swings and depression and not massively overweight, anybody else feel like their life has changed beyond recognition ????
