This is a great site and I would welcome anyone's thoughts.
I was diagnosed about 1 yr ago, no obvious hypo symptoms just lack of energy. 4 nodules were found on thyroid gland but considered too small for biopsy. Started 50 mg Levo but didn't notice any difference. After next blood test Endo increased Levo to 75mg, then things changed, I started to experience hypo symptoms, hair loss, skin getting drier, nails brittle. After 8 weeks I became exhausted and very breathless. A slight cold left me feeling lousy.
I had a head injury about 30 years ago and now my neck muscles stiffen, on 1 side leading to tension headaches. I had learnt, with exercises, to release this tension, however with these hypo symptoms this doesn't work and I need to take pain relief.
My GP, who is very understanding, says my recent blood test is okay but that I'm definitely experiencing hypo symptoms. At my request he's trying to get Armour or similar, so I hope to try that soon.
Has anyone else experienced this quick change in symtoms ie deterioration with increased meds?
Thankfully, I'm not so fatigued at the moment and have reduced my Levo back to 50 mg until Armour arrives.
