Well I made it almost two years to the day but my thyroid has finally given up. Biggest thing I noticed was cold hands but also some fatigue and definitely constipation. (Also look for droopy eyelids, slow reflexes and achy joints and muscles among other things).
I have a question for everyone on Synthroid/Levothyroxin. My TSH was around 100 (supposed to be between (.4 and 4.00), so that was way high. Doctor said he was surprised I didnt have more dramatic symptoms. I told him, "once you have been through Chemo and Rads you know what REAL fatigue is". I guess I was fatigued but it was nothing compared to what I have experienced.
Anyway, does anyone remember their TSH level and what dose they are taking of the Synthroid/Levothyroxin to get back to normal?
I started low on 25mg and now on 50mg. I suspect with my high TSH #'s that I will end up w/ over 100mg before I level out. I would love to compare numbers!
