Hi there, I am so sorry to hear this has been oing on for such a long time.
Have you expressed these symptoms to your Endo or your local doctor? I know over the years, the dose needs to be looked at and perhaps change as our bodies change.
I also had my thyroid removed due to papillary cancer and also had a neck disection because it had spread to lympnodes and a parathyroid.
You don't have to just except the pain, have you has thyroid tests done? I had my surgery in feb this year so get tests done every couple of months.
Due to me needing my TSH suppressed I am hyper and that's a nightmare but try to push through. Ask for tests, ask for alternative meds. I'm in Australia so we only use thyroxine, but after reading lots on here the US use a combination of t4 and t3 meds.... Have you suggested that?
Change doctors if you need to, someone who will listen. I have been through a couple bc I feel they don't do anything. Don't be afraid to push them to help you, that's what they should be doing!!!!!!!!
Hope this helps :)
