I am 18 years old and newly diagnosed hypothyroid after routine bloods showed I was very hypothyroid. I was started on 25mcg levothyroxine back in May 2018 and this was increased to 50mcg 3 weeks after. This is what I am on now for another 3 weeks before being retested.
So when can I expect to feel better please?
Jobs around the house feel like more of an effort for me to complete and I feel too depressed, too unmotivated to do them. Periods drain the life out of me. Joints in my wrists and knees ache. Pins and needles in my skin and in my feet and legs. Arms and legs feeling weak when I use them. Becoming increasingly more tired as time goes on. Concentration growing less at work and I am making more mistakes.
Please could someone help advise. Thank you.
