I was diagnosed in February and was put on .05mgs of Levothyroxine. I took the full six week dosage and havebt taken any medications since. Recently, I have been having synptoms of what I call a 'thyroid flare-up' where I can recognize symptoms of my hypothyroidism acting up. Such as depression, dry skin and scalp, being cold, being EXHAUSTED, being achey, bowel and menstral problems and I am even starting to notice 'brain fog' fog' which I had never noticed before. I am feeling nervous about the outcome of NOT taking my levo. I dont take the neds because the clinic I was going to never called me back. (They pretty much sucked.) So. I really want to know what my risks are.. because a friend of mine has Hypo too.. and she is sterile because of it. I am so scared something big like that big will happen.. but could it make that much of a difference when I was only starting my levo? How concerned should I be? Any advice would be wonderful. Thank you!
