Short version. On Lev since last year, latest dose 75/50 alt days. Decided switch to Naturethroid and did so very successfully in July and on 1.5 grains per day. All good and felt better very quickly. Until - on a stupid whim and after watching Autopsy on Karen Carpenter (wasnt even relevent as it was synthroid she took!!!) on tv I stopped the meds -completely last Thursday. Friday felt ok, Saturday not too bad but SUNDAY OMG!! Felt soo ill mentally and physically. Was like a very bad does of PMT/Depression together with pain everywhere. My OH didnt know what to do with me even suggesting hospital! Why did I think I could do without meds and be so pigheaded I DONT KNOW but how frightening that condition can deteriorate so quickly. Be warned xxx
