Hi Everyone! I'm a newbie to both this forum and to taking Levothyroxine (3rd day taking 1x 50 m a day) and I'm looking for some advise if possible.
If I rewind back to my initial visit to the GP 2 weeks ago, I went with symptoms of .....
Swollen Eye lids/ bags , brittle nails, anxiety , dry skin on my elbow, spots on my neck.
GP said to get blood tested for Thyroid, kidney function and vitimin D which happened Friday . I was called back on the day and told not to panic back but I needed to book an appointment with a GP to discuss my results. So I panicked as you would and demanded an appointment for that day.
I was able to see a GP who's words were my results were "up and down" for Thyroid. I was "a bit" anaemic and the last which has worried me even more than anything , my kidneys aren't functioning as well as they should for someone my age (37 female)
I was totally in shock! GP sent me on my way with a prescription for levothyroxine and iron tablets. I now have spent all weekend googling what's wrong or could be wrong as feel I was given not enough explanation ?!
I have plenty of questions but for now if someone could answer me what's really worrying me-
my eyes have swollen even more than before now I've started the tablets ? Tingling sensation around sinuses.
I wake up with the feeling of morning sickness ?
I'm getting diarrhoea after eating ?
My throat Is dry, my neck is stiff, my " fatty waddle" under my chin feels different ?
I am totally new to this so any advise would be massively appreciated xx
