Hello everyone, this is my first post here as I've recently been diagnosed as having hypothyroidism.
A little background; I went to the doctors because I started getting joint pain in my fingers and I was becoming ridiculously tired all day and living on energy drinks. I'd been dieting for a year so put it down to maybe reduced energy levels and maybe arthritis.
Anywho, after a couple of blood tests the doctor said I had hypothyroidism and put me on 25mg of Levothyroxine.
I've been on them for nine days now but I'm still tired and have problems waking up. In fact yesterday I fell asleep in the afternoon and the battery on my phone ran out so the alarms didn't go off and slept through picking my son up from school so much that I didn't wake up until it was 5:30pm when the inlaws were banging on the door.
They and school were pretty angry understandably, to say I'm utterly mortified and upset is an understatement.
Does anyone know how long it might take for me to feel an improvement as I'm getting a little down about it now?
Thanks for any advice you could give.
