Hasimoto and possibly Sjögren

Faith007 profile image


I have Underactive Thyroid and last year was taking a 75 mg of Levothyroxine every day. As I was still feeling tired I asked my doctor if I could have the dosage raised and bearing in my that my TSH was reading 4.0 he agreed! He therefore suggested that I take 75 mg and 100 mg on alternate days. I have however been suffering from a dry throat which my GP thinks could possibly be Sjögrens! The strange thing is that the dry throat only seemed to start as soon as I upped my dose. This may be a coincidence but could there be a chance that the higher dose is causing the dryness? Would love to hear from anyone who can shed any light on this thank youx
