Re: Hi everyone I am new

Welcome to the Board! You'll learn a lot here.
To help us avoid repeating a lot of the basics, go to our Information Archive at the top of the subject page. You'll find URLs for websites that will explain the basics of hypothyroidism, good self-help books to read, and much more that the doctors don't mention when they start treatment.

Benzi is right that you should get hard copies of all your bloodwork. Trust us on that. Also, learn as much as you possibly can about your disease. An informed patient usually does better than one who leaves everything up to the doctor.

All those problems you mention will improve after you work your way up to the right dose for you.
Let us know if you need more answers!
