Hello everyone! About a month ago I went to the gynecologist because I haven't had my period in a year. They did bloodwork and said that my tsh levels were abnormal and the doctor prescribed levothyroxine. The thing is, I didn't really have any symptoms of thyroid problems - maybe some fatigue, but nothing that felt really serious. I mostly felt good. But I took the levo because my gyno said that it might help me get my periods again.
Anyways I've only taken it for 2 days (I'm on 25 mcg). The first day I felt good, a bit hot but that's all. Today though I have been so anxious and jittery and broke down crying at work twice. I feel really warm and I can feel my heart beating and it freaks me out. I called the gyno and they said to stay on it until my body gets used to it. But I'm afraid that I don't need it and that it will do permanent damage if I stay on it. I'm also terrified about what will happen if I go off it now. The nurse at the gyno's office said I could try to take half the dosage in the morning and half at night, so I might just take a half tomorrow morning I just don't know what to do, I kind of want to just stop taking it but maybe I should give it a chance? It just feels pointless since I wasn't even feeling bad before all this help!!
