Following A thy3 result from an aspiration. I had a 4cm nodule on the right side of my thyroid and was advised by the ent surgeon to have it removed. I have felt symptomatic for hypothyroid for approx 18 months but was ignored. Since my thyroidectomy I pestered my gp for further testing and was finally diagnosed with being hypothyroid 2 weeks ago (sorry I do not ave my actual readings YET)! I was put on levothyroxine 50mcg and from day 2 have felt somewhat worse! I come out in a horrific burning rash on my 2nd day, which lasted approx 3 hours. I feel flushed (on my face only) for the majority of the day and now feel like my legs are really swollen and heavy but I don't believe they are filled with fluid. Has anyone else experienced this or can anyone please give me some advice. I've tried to get in to see my gp but its proving really difficult to get an appt.
