Could this be linked in with menopausal problems as well ? Are you at that age? XX

i am 56 but went through menopause(or thought i did ) before my TT in january for Goitre. Also had hysterectomy 10 years ago. The brain fog and my eyesght is also bad in the last few weeks which i forgot to mention

I'll wait and see what others say XX

As you are having clinical symptoms, I suggest you ask your GP for a new blood test to check your levels as you could be undermedicated as all of the above sound like clinical symptoms of hypo. Maybe the GP would consider adding some T3 to your levo?

They could also be symptoms of over medication on T4 - something is not right. You may be taking too much T4 (levo) and not converting to T3. I agree you need a blood test.

Too much T4 caused me to have some unpleasant symptoms - some of the ones you have listed above. I have now reduced the T4 and added a small dose of T3. This seems to be a better balance for me.
