daughter born with underactive thyroid and on levo for 26 yrs and no probs till last year. Put on 3 stone in a couple of months and large goitre in neck which is intermittently painful and now affecting breathing. Lots of other issues appeared at same time also. At endo appt (she hasn't seen an endo since she was a child) she disagreed with him when he said to up the levo as her gp had been doing this n she had overactive symptoms. The endo described her as a very anxious lady (which she wasn't, she just disagreed to up her levo coz of subsequent symptoms), he then described her goitre as palpable and non tender?? (not true) Should she even have developed a goitre when on high dose levo?he then said he'd see her in 3 months?? I'm very worried about her
