Hashimotos and severe rash. Taking 125 mcg Levoxyl for few years (altho I don't know if same amount for that long). Rash started months ago-seen many doctors-no answer for rash. Rash is all over, very intense itchy. Takes antihistimines
Dec 20: TSH 1.74; TPO 106; T43 1.76; Anitglob less than 20; Compliment Total= (CH 50) , not sure what that means. And chronic uritcarea 1.0
Endo appt on 1/23/13: Dr suggested 125 mcg Tirosint and Dr only tests TSH. Said to come back in 3 mos
Urgent MD appt on 2/4/13 as son was having "panic/anxiety" attack, intense uncontrollable itch, shortness of breath, heavy breathing. They tested his TSH at .39, MD said to go back to Levoxyl as the Tirosint goes to bloodstream quicker & cuz of that , too high dose.
Has been back on Levoxyl and had attack about noon couple more days (thinking that would take time to have TSH adjust back & Tirosint out of system). But had another "attack" late last night- my description would be as an intense hotflash, tearing clothes off, trying to get cool, talking excessively fast, breathing heavy, and scratching so much in spots bleeding.
Has another appt. I know this isn't all info, but what I have now. He is NOT himself and needs help.
