So I'm so far having the worst time ever. Last Wednesday, I went really cold then hands starting shaking lasted a few minutes that's all. I was having a coffee with a friend , so thought no more about it other than thinking that was weird . When I got home I sat down and bang - an almighty headache from hell!!!
Despite meds this persisted ALL night. In brief went to Drs , referred to a/e admitted. Investigated ? Bleed on the brain, treated initially for viral meningitis then eventually a severe kidney infection (to which I displayed no usual symptoms) .
I was having high temps and my heart rate was up. I'm home now still not great feeling sick and now diarrhoea )from meds I think and hope !
Alongside the infection they suggested I may have been taking too much thyroxine ! They have reduced it from 125 to 75 with a recommendation to see my g.p.
At my worst I was on 200mgs and I have gradually dropped down to 125 ( and felt actually well for a few years )
I guess just putting it out there - has anyone here experienced taking too much thyroxine and and the consequences ?
