Hi, I had a reaction to something yesterday and am trying to work out if it was something I ate/drank or if it was WP Thyroid.
I started WP Thyroid two weeks ago, 1/4 grain a day as I wanted to take it slowly due to many allergies. Yesterday I upped my dose to 1/2 grain (was on 75mcg levothyroxine but hadn't taken any thyroid meds since January as my GP couldn't find anything suitable). Within half an hour I had a headache and nausea, also during this time I ate and drank something which could also be to blame. A short time later I had abdominal cramps. I know you're supposed to take thyroid meds a certain amount of time before food, but this wasn't possible yesterday. I'm trying to figure out what caused the reaction and am hoping it isn't the NDT as there's no way I'm going back on levothyroxine and I need something!
The reaction was very similar to a gluten/food reaction I have and I can't see anything on Google relating to NDT in this way. Is it possible to react to the porcine itself? I currently don't eat meat and am wondering if I have developed a problem with animal products altogether, can't eat dairy or eggs either.
Thanks for any input.
