It has now been 7 weeks since I started on levothyroxine and I had a call from the doctor today to say my recent blood test results were great and my TSH has come right down to around 1.5 (I intend to go and get a print out of the full results).
I feel 100 times better and I think this has been helped by me religiously following the autoimmune paleo diet throughout that time. A lot of the previous symptoms I was having have subsided.
Besides some fatigue which causes an issue with me getting out of bed in the morning, the only real issue I'm having is with my eyes! They are so itchy that they are driving me to despair! This issue started almost as soon as I started the tablets. At first I was sure that it was hay fever but now I am finding myself waking up whilst itching them and I know I've been scrubbing them in my sleep. I have stopped wearing make up and trying my hardest not to think about how itchy my eyes are but they are driving me mad. I've been taking an antihistamine each day but it's making no difference.
I mentioned it to the doctor today and he has prescribed eye drops for hay fever but I think it's related to the underactive thyroid or levothyroxine. He asked that I see how it goes. Has anyone else experienced the same? Does anyone have any advice on how to stop the mad itching?
