I can only imagine how horrible you felt. I was taken off of mine for 3 months by the doctors and I a TT due to thyroid cancer. After 3 months I felt miserable. It was the longest 3 months.

My Father was born without a thyroid and it went undetected until he was age 42.  His doctor did studies and papers and was well published due to the research that he did on my father.  He was labeled a "Modern Medical Miracle".  He has been on synthroid since it was determined.  He is now 70 years old!  YAY Dad!
