Hi, I've been off work for 3 weeks originally with depression. Been on sertraline for 3 weeks. A blood test revealed I have hypothyroid so been on Levo for 5 days. I can't even contemplate thinking about work (I'm a teacher) and the slightest thing is upsetting me. I've been getting really down and actually considered admitting myself to a psychiatric ward on a number of occasions. I used to be really proactive and buzz off stress but now I can't cope. The doctors didn't tell me much about the disease so I've relied on google. Since starting the Levothyroxine, my throat is sore and it's difficult to swallow- it's tight and swollen. Is this normal? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Can't drag myself off the settee. I used to go to taekwondo and the gym. I can't even face that at the moment
