I was told I have hypothyroidism about 13 years ago. Well I stopped taking the synthroid about 6 years ago because I didnt think it was helping me. Well about a month ago I started getting headaches so bad that any smells good or bad make me throw up. I have never had a migraine before so I'm not sure if that is what they are but it hurts worse than any headache I've ever had. My question is does anyone know if this could be due to my hypothyroidism? I have recently went back on the meds for my thyroid. I'm hoping that this will help my headaches go away.
hypo or hyper-thyroidism can contribute to headaches. Would recommend checking your TSH level and seeing where things are for the thyroid and correct it if necessary. It may not solve the headache problem, but certainly can be part of the problem.
I had blood taken and my doctor called me to tell me that my T3 and T4 levels were very high. He didnt tell me by how much but he didnt want to wait until my appt. to get me on meds. My cholesterol is also very high and he wanted me taking something for that right away.
is your TSH HIGH and T3/T4 LOW? i'm assuming this is the scenario, which means you are hypo and need thyroid replacement. you should call the doctor to get your results just to be sure. what meds and dose are you taking??
