when to go to ER?

What are signs of hypothyroid, longterm, that would warrant an ER visit if you have no endochronologist until June?
(Thyroid removed 4 years ago but last year of Levo 100 had hypo for 5 months+ and coming out of a 2 week hyperthyroid crisis just 4 days ago)

Please, consult with your local ER if you are in medical distress as Barb135 mentioned above !!!

The symptoms one experiences from long-term hypothyroidism, as I understand, are quite severe and can be life threatening.  We all need thryoid hormones to live .. if you aren't getting it from your med, then it can cause eventual death.
