Hi all and thankyou for allowing me to join the group. My name is Deb and I have just been diagnosed with hypothyroidism after suffering for 3 years. I still don't totally understand it and wanted to know if my symptoms of exhaustion fogginess to name just a few and especially weight gain will get better and how long no average does it take to get you onto the right dosage of tablet. I have been started on Levothyroxine 50mg and have been on them for just 8 days.
I don't know whether it was psychological or not but for the first 5 days I felt a bit better, not so tired and even being able to go to the toilet every day instead of every 2 weeks not nice to talk about but true.
I also have spinal problems for what I am on Mst slow release morphine so constipation and a lot of other things have always been put down to that as well as the Menopause.
Just any help in general really would be useful and to feel like I am not alone and no I am not losing the plot. 😊
