Hi all, I was diagnosed with an underachieve thyroid 20 years ago. I went to see my GP to have a routine blood test a few months ago and was told that my levels were too high. I was on 175mg and it was cut to 150mg. I then had another test and was told it was still too high and it was cut to 125mg, which is quite a drop in six weeks. Shortly afterwards I started to feel absolutely dreadful, and I still do. I've got terrible headaches (something I've never really suffered from), I'm waking up exhausted and can't concentrate. I'm also feeling very low/angry/weepy and weirdly have lower stomach pain, a sore throat (on and off), constipation and what feels like sinusitis symptoms (I've been taking a prescribed spray for over a week which hasn't made any difference). I guess what I'm asking is, could this all be due to the drop in thyroxine (I had another text this morning so I should get the results next week) or could it be down to sinusitis, or both? Can you get sinusitis symptoms is your thyroxine is too low?! I also came off the pill around the time of the first test, which I know can also affect thyroid test results, so it's all feeling rather confusing. Thanks in advance for any help - I'm feeling a touch desperate and really want some answers! Best wishes, Jo
