I was diagnosed last week with hypothyroidism and put on 25mg levothyroxine.
First tablet first thing Weds morning, I awake Thursday feeling dreadfully sick and unwell, was violently sick, felt bad enough to stay in bed due to headache aches and pains all over, generally lethargic, and nausea. I did not have any appetite and only drank water. It carried on for 48 hours, then started feel breathless tight chest and very very weak.
By Sunday the symptoms had subsided and today I feel ok.
Tonight out of curiosity I checked on side effects of levothyroxine and was shocked to see all my symptoms were on list (I have not listed all mine here)
My question is has anyone else suffered with side effects and is it normal to? How long have they lasted?
