I just wanted to update you all on my progress thus far. I was diagnosed with Hashimotos on February 3rd and have been taking 50mcg of levothyroxine ever since. The first 4 weeks I felt worse than I did when not on levothyroxine. However, those horrible symptoms have since subsided. Additionally, my hands no longer feel icy cold, my anxiety has returned to normal and my brain isn’t as foggy as before (still is on occasion). I have also noticed a slight improvement in my mood. With that said, I still do not feel as well as I want to be but I know I am on the right path. My current symptoms are depression (not as bad as before taking Levo), weight gain, hair loss (not as severe but still bad), dry skin, trouble with memory, trouble concentrating and low libido. It has been exactly 6 weeks on Levothyroxine and I feel better than when I began! I will be getting my thyroid levels checked tomorrow. I sent an email to my doctor asking for an increase in dose as well as asking if there is a possibility to add T3 to the mixture. He agreed for a dose increase and also open about adding T3 treatment if Levo is not enough! Overall things are looking up and I hope this gives some hope to those who are struggling right now. I’d like to say a big THANK YOU to all the wonderful people who have helped me and to this entire forum because without it I would’ve never been able to feel better!
