Me? Pretty terrible. Temp this morning was 94.1. I fell asleep at a stop light on the way to work today too. So far this 60mg (Armour) isn't doing jack for me - but it's only been 2 days since I've upped my dose. Hopefully this doesn't continue.. I'm running out of sick time at work.
Lady50 - it DOES seem like I'm getting worse. My boyfriend says he thinks I'm almost more symptomatic than before. I think he's right. Maybe Armour isn't right for me - or maybe I've just been on too low of a dose for too long.
I'm not sure about going to the ER - I hesitate because I know how doctors are with thyroid problems. I'm more upset that my coworkers/boss don't understand that I'm really completley out of it today. It's 85* outside and I have a hoody sweatshirt on over my t-shirt, jeans, and a blanket draped around me. You think they'd get a clue.
pixiek - I'm ready to take mine out too. ugh. If it only helped!
I think if I'm still feeling poorly tomorrow I'll give the doc a call and play stupid for a little bit, and ask how quickly I should start to feel a difference from the increased meds. Tuesday I was feeling ok. that was day 1 of the increase.. tomorrow I might be ok too...
this back and forth bull **** is what makes me crazy.
Oh can I understand the cold issue! I wear the same get ups myself and everyone looks at me like I am crazy. Last week at hubby's softball game it was in the upper 80's and I had on a hoody jacket and everyone on the bleachers was asking me if I was crazy! NO, I am not crazy, I am SICK!!!!!!!
I feel like you, just rip the dang thing out!
I am feeling good symptom wise today, but I have the achy feeling in my thyroid/nodule area. I hate that too.
One of the girls I work closely with in my office is newly pregnant. Everyone totally caters to her "oh how are you feeling today! Do you need to go home and get some extra sleep?" Now, don't get me wrong - she absolutley has the right not to feel well, etc. But as I sit next to her completley huddled up in blankets with my head in my hands on a daily basis.. *sigh* it's amazingly frustrating.
I'm sitting here in tears (at work mind you, my coworkers must think I'm nuts) because this just sucks. I just don't have it in me to sit here and work anymore. I can't take much more time off work without fearing losing my job. I can't cut back my hours because I'm barely making it financially as it is.
I actually feel pretty good. My hair is still falling out but I am not as tired anymore. Its still rough getting up in the morning, but I can't complain really. I am on 125 mcg of levoxyl and my doc wrote to tell me I need an increase. Which I won't mind. My tsh is 3.8 at this point. I didn't ask for my t4, I figured I am hypo but it doesn't matter at this point since my doc said I still need more meds.
