December 31, 2009
My thyroid TSH level was at 433 (yes, Four hundred and thirty-three) last year...since then I've experienced what the doctor called "bottomed-out." This occurred when I first started taking two pills a day right off the bat. They wanted to bring my levels down quickly, but instead it almost took me out of commission.
The last several months have been ok...but lately (*the last three weeks*) I've been very tired, numbness in the hands, arms, legs, and feet, extreme fatigue, no menstral cycle, shortness of breath, unfunctionable throughout the day, dizzy spells, migranes, chest pains, inability to think clearly, and insomnia have been my daily routine.
I'm not sure if this is stress related, but at times I feel like I'm going to pass out...The most recent levels the doctor took...I was around 83...this was a few months ago.
Should I have the doctor test for another issue? They said when I began the thyroid meds I'd feel great...well, for me...it was just the opposite. I have never felt so useless or weak in all my life than I have this past year...
Do you think I should wait it out or have them test for another issue?
