I was diagnosed with underactive thyroid 3 months ago whilst have blood tests for something else was also told i had high blood pressure. Didn't know anything about it until looking into it and realising I had many of the symptoms. The doc didn't really tell me anything just that it was 'slightly low' just gave me the starting dose of 50mcg of levo and have just gone back to be told its not enough so now having to increase 75mcg.
my question is should I really be feeling worse now than before I started on the meds?!? And why isn't my doc giving me any detailed information about it? Suffering heart palpitations, breathlessness, dry skin patches, general anxiety, agitated and seem to be putting even more weight on along with an annoying dry cough but that could be from the bp tablets.
any help or advice would be appreciated
