Hi. I was hoping for some re assurance and help of understanding my recent diagnosis of under active thyroid. Been getting myself in a panic.
I became so weak and sore I ended up taking myself to a&e and that's when my results came back (I was home when I got results) that my thyroid levels were so low they couldn't even get a reading so it had basically packed in and my tsh was at 100.
This is day 6 of being on levothyroxine, 2 days at 50mg but endocrinologist called and said to double to 100 after day 2.
My biggest concerns are the swelling in my neck which he said is goitre but hasn't actually seen me and the swelling in my hands feet and face. Has anyone had this? Also does anyone know when you notice a difference with meds? I have 3 small kids and I'm finding it hard to keep up. Even my brain slows down. Sorry for massive story I'm just so worried oh and i take 100mg of sertraline daily for depression and have done for 8years.
Any advice would be gratefully appreciated
Thanks in advance
