I am almost 6weeks into Levothyroxine and have been prescribed 50mcg. I’m curious if any of you had extreme weight loss, flank (kidney region) pain, increase urination, elivated BP, heat intolerance & rapid heartbeats when first taking Levothyroxine?
I am so scared that these aren’t side effects of the medication, but potential signs of kidney issues(disease/failure/ cancer)? I am only 26 (27 in June) but have been extremely obese most of my life and experimented in several extreme diets including various pills, patches and anorexia/bulimia, so safe to say I’ve been tougher on my body than the “average” “young person”.
But anyways, like I said, I am super scared that my kidneys are messing up, so I am hoping these side effects are actually just from the Levothyroxine. Thank you for any help.
