  • It would be helpful to know a little more history. How long ago did you have your thyroidectomy? What hormone replacement and how much are you taking? Do you have any recent blood results to post? Without more details it is impossible to help.

    Hopefully you can give more details and someone can give some feed back.

    Good luck.

    i want to know IF THE ABOVE symptoms rELATED TO ME TRAVELLING BY PLANE AFTER 14 DAYS OF SURGERY, DOING MRI SCAN OR DOING ENDOSCOPY. WHEN EVER I DO ANY TEST I DEVELOP MORE SYMPTOMS

  • Welcome to the forum, Sunymatthew.

    Can you post the results of recent thyroid tests with ranges (figures in brackets) as it will help us to advise.

    I had similar symptoms when I was switched from Liothyronine (T3) to Levothyroxine after RAI. After I cleared the build up of Levothyroxine most symptoms resolved and I was able to resume Levothyroxine in combination with Liothyronine (T3).

    I was also found to be severely vitD deficient, folate deficient and had low B12. This is common in thyroidectomised and hypothyroid patients. Ask your GP to test ferritin, vitamin D, B12 and folate.
