Hi everyone, after some guidance.
I started Levo 3 months ago, currently been on 75mcg for 3 weeks.
On Monday I started with allergy symptoms - hives, nausea, swollen lips and eyes and even got taken to a+e on Wednesday as I was extremely short of breathe. I’m on steroids and antihistamines gut again at 2am I was covered from head to toe in hives and had d+v all night!
Drs are baffled as never had this before and I’m 32. After some reading I found that the synthetic fillers etc of levothyroxine can cause histamine release in the body and cause allergies?
I know for a fact GP won’t be bothered as it took weeks for me to even get Levo after I demanded he speak to endocrine who agreed I needed medication.
Any advice please? I’m off work again today with huge hives all over me and completely fed up. I stopped my Levo today and I’m worried about relapsing as I finally started to feel “okish”
