Hi I am reposting this since my post has now disappeared onto another page. I am newly registered. I was diagnosed hypothyroid in 2014. My dose is 100mcg levo and 10mcg T3. I was given T3 by my endo because I cannot convert T4 to T3 very well. I am just wondering with my current symptoms I could do with a raise in dose?
Difficult swallowing, one side of neck swollen on one side (thyroid ultrasound has shown goitre), trapped wind, constipation, cold intolerance, freezing cold feet and toes, pains in legs, cramps in muscles, tiredness, dry skin, sores in mouth, looking washed out, weight gain, clumsiness, high blood pressure, pains in chest, loss of balance, memory loss, mental sluggishness, feeling of wanting to isolate myself. I am getting called "slow and stupid" a lot of the time which I cannot currently help at the moment.
