I have been Hypo for 20 years plus. Have been on Thyroxine 125 mcg for 15 of those years. Then was over medicated and doseage was reduced to 125/100 alternate days. Felt fine on that for 3 years. Have since gone in to the menopause and medication has fluctuated since then. Going from 125/100 alternate to 100, then 75, back to 100 and back to 125/100. Now told this is too much and advised to take 100 Monday to Friday and 125 Saturday and Sunday. This is after my stomach felt alive and being bloated, hoarse voice, raised pulse rate and lightheaded.
A week ago I thought I had pulled my back lifting the lawnmower as now have terrible back pain which goes into where the ovary is situated. Last night I thought I was dying. My stomach felt alive, bloated and I was starving, the pain was terrible and painkillers did not help. Pulse rate was up, muscles in legs felt weak.
So could this be that the medication needs changing again or is it something else? Any help would be good.
