hypothyroid and balance problems

Hi all for past 3months have had balance problems, falling usually to the left, but have fell backwards and forwards. Also had seizures insomnia major muscle problems, and so on. Last week blood test confirmed hypothyroid, and started thyroxine. Also quite anxious and irritated. Has anyone had these balance problems, do they stop? getting concerned about going out fall so much. I am new to the forum and posted in wrong place originally. Would love any advice in relation to all of it really

When I was hypo, I was clumsy, falling several times while out walking or running. I would drop glasses and bowls.  Now that I am on regular meds, my clumsiness is gone, I haven't broken anything in a couple of years, and I haven't fallen since before I had my TT.  Connection?  Maybe, but also may be anecdotal.

I have hashi's and when Im hypothyroid I get very stiff and clumsy, which makes my balance bad.  When you are at the correct does all these symptoms will vanish. Good luck to you and hope all is well very soon.

You can learn a lot about the best way to treat hypothyroidism, in this link written by a good thyroid doctor.  A good thyroid doctor is one that will treat a hypo patient clinically by testing and adjusting the biologically active thyroid hormones,Free T3 and Free T4, with meds as necessary to relieve symptoms, without being constrained by resultant TSH levels.  Symptom relief should be all important, not jsut test results..
