Firstly - a huge thank you to all the support on here! I finally bit the bullet and went to a private endo who has put me on levothyroxine. She apologised for the fact that nobody has helped me, despite 4 years of worsening symptoms (I have been considering giving up work) and a strong family history of hypo! It is hard, as when you feel dreadful and 'foggy' you seem to not be able to take the decision to search for treatment, so i had left it and have been living in a state of total fog! It was my Dad that literally made the appointment for me and took me there, as I just couldn't think straight. Finger's crossed this works now!
Anyway a quick question - I forgot to check if I can still take my propanalol for High blood pressure, so I decided not to take it for these first 2 days (I am on 1 week of 25mcg, then next week increase to 50mcg). Today, I have been feeling shaky and a bit hyper and my BP has gone up. I am wondering if this is because I have stopped the propanalol. Does anyone know if it is ok to take both? I assume that only 2 days worth of levo will not result in side effects? or is shakiness a common symptom to start with?
In the long run, I am hoping that once the thyroid has been sorted, I will not need treating for the high BP.
