hypo and breathing problems?

Anyone having any breathing problems with hypothyroid ?  (I am on Tirosint)

My throat feels thick, I can't swallow very well, and I feel like i can't catch my breath?

Any suggestions?  

Also, if I have only been on the meds for 4 months, how long does it usually take to start feeling a bit more consistently better?   I still feel up and down all throughout the day. My levels are tested every 6 weeks, and the meds get tweaked a bit.

It often takes a long time before we get to feeling good consistently.  The trick is to get levels adjusted so you have more good days than bad, then keep tweaking the med, until you feel good all the time.

Please post your latest thyroid blood test results, along with the reference ranges.  It sounds like your dosage may need to be increased.

Yes, I had shortness of breath when I was hypo.  That's a common symptom.
