I'm new to the world of hypothyroidism.
I was trialed on levothyroxine for a month and although I didn't feel too much of an effect, once they ran out I felt terrible. I had my blood test results back which showed that the thyroxine was needed so I have definitely been put on them.
Do any of you have hypothyroidism completely under control? Or feel "normal" on their medication. All the stories, threads etc that I've read seem like horror stories.
My case isn't too bad at the moment compared to some if what I've read, but as my body is building up antibodies to my thyroid I have a feeling its only going to get worse.
The main things that bother me is the tiredness (which is the one thing I've noticed a slight improvement on) and being constantly cold. After that, it's the dry, thinning hair and excessive hair loss and the dry skin.
I'm to go back for more bloods in 6-8 weeks to check the levothyroxine dose
