I was recently diagnosed with hypothroidism. I do not know what my tsh levels are (that was the only thing tested at the time), but when the nurse called to inform me of the diagnosis and give me my prescription she said that my levels we're slightly elevated.
About two weeks after starting the lowest dose available of Synthroid, I began to notice a slight improvement in my energy level and my stamina. After only a few days I was right back to feeling fatigued all the time, with little energy to keep up with my kids. I've been taking medication for just over a month now, with no physical improvement it seems. Im even dealing with an increase in PMS symptoms and am now five days late for my period this month. In your experience, is this normal? How long did it take you to notice a difference after starting medication? Any ideas if this is indicative of my levels getting worse instead of better despite the medication?
I go back to my Dr for a follow up in a little over a month, and if I don't see any changes from how things are currently I will certainly bring it up. I just wanted to get a little insight beforehand so I could be better prepared for my appointment.
