10 days ago, out of the blue, I swelled up like a puffer fish, felt a blockage in my throat and looked terrible. My GP sent me for blood tests and a week ago I was diagnosed with dangerously low thyroid levels which had already affected my liver etc. My GP has immediately put me on low dose of Levothyroxine which is being gradually increased. I've since been sent for thyroid antibody tests as my thyroid tested normal 1 year ago. I have read up on quite a lot of information on what to take/eat and what not to take/eat but have found much of it contradictory. I still feel quite unwell at times and cold/puffy and have the strange feeling still in my throat plus a croaky voice. I'm keen to help myself as much as possible while awaiting more results and for the Levothyroxine to reach decent levels. I would be grateful for any advice that you may have built up from your own knowledge and experiences as this is all so new to me. Also, any good books on this condition that you could recommend would also be appreciated.
Many thanks in advance,
