I've just joined the group after being diagnosed with an under active thyroid a few moths ago.
I'm a male (45) and I've always seemed to have the symptoms of an under active thyroid (cold sensitivity, cold feet, dry skin, tiredness and so on) so it was actually a relief to get a diagnosis after suffering from all these vague things over the years.
I've started my med's (Levothyroxine 50mg) and to be honest I seem to be feeling worse if anything.
I've started acting quite irritable, having cold sweats at night, still tired, losing sensation in my toes and SO cold. Brrr! My wife even found me passed out on the bathroom floor which is a bit of a worry.
I'm just wondering if it's normal to get some adverse affects until I get my levels sorted?
I've been looking on the internet but a lot of the general health sites seem to be a copy + paste of all the others regarding information.
Sorry if this sounds a bit vague as I'm still doing my best to find out all I can about a pretty vague condition.
Thanks in advance.
