Just as Cupi is, I am also on a (1 month) 25mg trial of levo, but unlike her I felt the effect almost immediatley . . . but for 2 days only
I was back to my old self; jumped out of bed did some house work ... no aches or pains, no exhaustion, no having to rest.... went in to the garden and did some weeding spent the rest of the day SINGING ! ! The dark oppression that had sat on my shoulder, that I hadn't even noticed had been there, had lifted. I felt warmer too. I was out of the fog and thinking clearly, I had sleep in my eyes in the morning, don't know when I last had that ! my constipation gone, (but period back (vitamin D ?).
After the initial 2 days I was better than I had been, but not to the extent of the first couple of days (perhaps I over did it ?) and in the afternoons now the effects are wearing off. so I have to go back to the sofa to rest again
Today I feel back to square one. Crawling around the shops being overtaken by 80 year olds (I'm 55) My daughter has also noticed that I am not hearing as well as I used to, additionally the chest pain I have is now painful when I sneeze or hiccup (dont know whats going on there ! ! ) and I now have a pain in my back between my shoulder blades.
Next week I go back the the doc, (he didn't think it was thyroid and I suspect he will take me off the levo) does anyone have any advice for me, anything I should, or more poignantly, shouldn't mention, and are these reactions normal for this initial treatment?
