12 days ago after going to my GP for the last 6 months with various aches, pains and feeling generally awful I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism.
My TSH was 100 and T3 was 5.2
I had a heart attack and bypass surgery in June this year aged 48.
My GP said he can only put me on a small dose of thyroxine and increase it very slowly because of my heart.
I was started on 50mcg of thyroxine 12 days ago.
The fatigue I have is just awful, worse than when I had open heart surgery. The longest I can stay out of bed is about 5 hours a day, I have numbness and pins and needles in my feet and hands. My muscles ache really badly . Paracetamol is doing nothing for the pain in my feet and muscles.
I have a sore shoulder all of a sudden and am breathless on exhertion....,
How long before I see any improvement ??
Thank you folks xx
