I'm looking for input from anyone out there who has suffered with hypothryoidism. I've posted one other question which affirms my suspicion that I have hypothyroidism based on my TSH of 6.1. I'm curious about the experiences of others, primarily, will all of the symptoms of hypothyroidism be relieved with medication, and how long will it take for the majority of the symptoms to resolve once treatment has begun?
I have had Hashimoto's hypothyrodism for at least 12 years but only diagnosed April 05.
I think it depends of the meds you take. I only have so far had Oroxine and Levothyroxine available to me.
The headaches, severe fatigue, insomnia, mild depression went almost immediately. However I have many many symptoms which have not cleared yet.
