Not sure how to do this in the existing thread. Seems like the site is changing. So, thanks all for the advise. I'm still trying to sort out side effects from hyper/hypo. I've experienced some of the over medicated symptoms but they are also listed as side effects. If it's unlikely that I'll go hyper at 75 then may give that a shot. I now have a swollen gland and have been referred to an ENT. I think it's the result of all the sneezing and blowing nose and odd feeling in my ear that's caused the gland to swell (drainage) and odd throat. Dr said throat and ears are fine. So-off to another specialist I go. Does anyone know why Drs are so reluctant to acknowledge side effects and do something about it?
