Hi, I have just started 25 m levothyroxide in the morning..I am taking this one hour before my Omaprazole,..then have breakfast half an hour later.. The dr told me to ask the pharmacist when to take these...so I hope that seems ok..I also take Simvastin at night. IN fact I don't feel unwell as such, but although sleeping well find i am having half hour very very deep sleeps in afternoon and early evening..I fight to wake myself up ..I have always felt a bit cold just round my waist and also my hands seem colder than friends...and for years I,have had very tender wrists and inner arms..but am able to walk to town each day and home again up a hill, with my trolley. THe other most distressing problem is sever constipation (I've had op for prolapsed bowel 2'years ago) which is happening again caused by this constipation and bowel never emptying..then Imwas doing a bit better with Fibrogel Senna and Allbran, which I now take in the evening so as not to nullify the levothryoxine.
I did not ask dr for any details as I didn't know what they meant, just been researching these last few days..when I have my next blood test I 6 weeks I will ask for both lists.
I am on border of vit D deficiency,mono meds so trying to eat more eggs and salmon, and awaiting a bone scan.. Now I read I can't eat walnuts which I love..but any help of foods would be helpful,I don't know where to start..whenImgomformmym6 week blood test do I not take the levo before I go then.. MY sister has been taking this for a long time so maybe it's hereditary ..tho she sleeps badly, has thinning hair and gets very depressed and I don't get any of these problems, and wonder if I've had it for years and just not realised it. I weight just under 9 stone, would I put on weight with this complaint ? THank you for ready this..apologise for it being a bit boring but I just don't know really how to go about this especially diet etc
If,you have the time please reply ..thank you so much
