I have been on Levothyroxine for nearly 2 years & had a rocky start with lots of problems. However, after finding a sympathetic consultant who upped my meds, I have felt extremely well in my every day working life. I realise how lucky I am to have found this health again and would love to regain some of my old fitness levels. However, when I exercise vigorously my old symptoms resurface.....breathlessness, dry cough & inner ear pain,etc.
Have any hypothyroid athletes out there tried increasing their meds a few days before a lot of strenuous exercise? I have played with my meds a little under supervision of my consultant and my exercise has been symptom-free but I always end up with palatations at night which suggests I am over medicating. Any ideas?
