Hello, I don't really know why im posting, I suppose could just do with some reassurance. I started on levothyroxine 50mg per day after diagnosed with hypo, tsh nearly 12 and lots of symptoms since birth of my son 18 months ago. When I started Levi I had a bad few wks where I felt hypo and hyper at same time but this settled and I improved. Had check this wk after 6 weeks and tsh 2.21 which is obviously much better but I still have many of the same symptoms so am trying an increase to 75 mg a day. I started this yesterday and know it will take a week or so for me to get used to it as it did last time but today I feel just so out of sorts, really emotional, absolutely shattered but can't rest. I just feel so sad because every day im not right is a day where im not at my best for my family and I feel I am letting them down. Im just not me any more and its all time I can never get back. I'm only 34 but I feel jaded and empty. Please tell me I can get to somewhere near how I used to be, I've never been one to mope but today my eyes are just raw from being upset. I'm so frustrated with myself.
