I had a thyroidectomy in Sept 2010, RAI at the end of Oct 2010, with scan in early Nov 2010.
Everything came out fine. I started Synthroid in early Nov 2010 and have been on a roller coaster ever since. The seven week period after I have an increase in medication, it takes 2 weeks for me to start feeling better, then feeling better in week 3 and 4, then week 5, 6, and 7 is a downward spiral to feeling pretty terrible again. The last two times, the nurse says my levels are normal and the problem isn't thyroid related. I visited with my internist and she tells me she can't find any other physical reason for this and to schedule another appointment with the endo doc.
My last reading was .71 and the Dr wants me down to the lowest possible level.
Has anyone else experienced the constant up and down during the seven week period of waiting for the med to take full effect---even when your number is in the normal range?
After 8 months of this roller coaster-I am very frustrated and anxious.
