Hello Dr, I live in Sydney australia and two years ago i had my thyroid removed.
Ever since I have been on Thyroxine 100mg six days a week and non Sundays
Ever since the endocrinologist told me to cut one dose once a week i feel very tired, shortness of breath and a strange feel on my chest like tidiness, is this normal ? To feel like this if i miss one dose?
Not sure how common that is to feel hypothyroid symptoms missing one dose but I feel the difference. I forgot my thyroxine the other day and I knew about it hours later. Sometimes I'll have to take an additional tablet to my daily dose when my breathing issues are bad.
