Stroke
I am hypothyroid for 9 years.  I was on synthroid 150 mcg levoxyl. Was not feeling well was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and increased dosage to 200mcg.  A week before I was feeling really swollen in my stomach. Then two weeks later had a stroke after confirmed by an MRI.  Was fortunate not to be disabled since it lasted only 3 hours.  I want to know if synthroid can cause a stroke.  My TSH came back normal after a blood exam.  Please let me know what you think???

The details on synthroid are as follows:
"An overdose of Synthroid can produce the same symptoms of overstimulation listed under "What side effects may occur?" Confusion and disorientation are also possible, and there have been reports of stroke, shock, coma, and death. If you suspect a massive overdose, seek emergency medical attention immediately."
