Could these symptoms be related to my Synthroid or TSH?
Hi all. Here's my background...TT December 2010 due to papillary thyroid cancer. Hypo hell followed with one round of RI, then put on Synthroid 100. Fast forward to October 2011, hypo hell again and tracer RI which was clean as a whistle. I'm on synthroid 100mcg again and have been doing great, until two or three weeks ago. I was out late with friends, didn't get much sleep, and got up early the next morning. I was exhausted, which was just and I expected that. Now it's almost three weeks later and I'm still not myself. My eyes feel puffy and dry all the time, I'm sluggish, and overall I just feel blah. My husband tells me I don't look swollen, but I feel like I am. I'm beginning to wonder if my TSH has taken a nose dive (I don't know why it would have though). Anyone else experience this?
These could be symptoms of stress which may be associated with hormonal changes or could occur due to other systemic causes as well. If the symptoms are severe you may consider an evaluation by an internist initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this helps.
