Re: Uh oh -- experiencing first side effects from Synthroid
I'm so sorry you are having this problem - but it is more easily solved than the problems you were having before surgery, eh?
I have to agree with elmhar - the jumping and cramping sound more like Ca imbalance.
On the other hand, I have heard that 50mcg is the starting dose of Synthroid - so it may just be, too, that your dose is too high, too soon. Were you on thyroid meds before your surgery? If not, then it might be too much to start with. It's always better to start with a low dose and work up slowly.
Will you be getting labs done soon? It would help to know your Ca, Mg, and Free T3 and T4 levels.
Love and Prayers,
