Hi all, been on Levothyroxine for 40 days now had second blood test since being diagnosed, seeing practice nurse tomorrow as Dr not around. Feeling bloody terrible, also have come off Sertraline which I was on for 12 years, (which I probably didn't need as I expect the hypothyroidism was making me depressed). Been getting headaches, itchy skin, sharp pins and needles in feet, dreadful fatigue and aching knee and ankle joints, also put on weight feel a wreck😨 have been trying to research what food to avoid and what best to eat, this illness is a complete nightmare because no one seems to take it seriously. Do I need to be more patient or should I press to see an endocrinologist? Your views would be much appreciated as I feel I am going mad!
