I have recently been diagnosed with an under active thyroid after giving birth 8 months ago. I am very new to all this and I believe it is post partum thyroidism and linked to the baby. I have been on levothyroxine for nearly three months, but I keep feeling very strange. I have a tingling sensation in my right arm and foot, my muscles seem weak, I am loosing lots of hair on my head, i am aware of my mouth and tongue and generally feel unwell.
I can feel perfectly normal and then rubbish for about 7 days. My doctor has said I shouldn't have the tingling now I'm on the tablets and I'm now worried it's something neurological rather than associated with my thyroid. Does anyone else have symptoms like this and are there triggers or connections to baby/Breast feeding that anyone knows of?
