I am now about 17 days off of my levothyroxine, getting ready for RAI. I Felt absolutely fine until yesterday. It was like I hit a wall. Does anybody know the biology of why the face and eyes get so puffy in the hypo state? I mean I understand it's fluid retention, but exactly why does that happen? The upside is my skin looks younger with the wrinkles puffed up
. My eyebrows feel unusually heavy. Well, the next couple weeks will be interesting. I'm a strange sort of tired..it makes my head feel funny, not uncomfortable, just different. I also feel like I constantly have the urge to burp??? What's with that? Is that related to this hypo state? It's sort of a nauseating feeling on and off during the day.
Well, I'm working a 12 hour day today, so that isn't helping matters. I just took a quick nap on the floor behind my desk! It's time to head down to Family Fun Night (I work at a school). Working the "cake walk" and I plan on enjoing some too! My "last supper". LI diet starts tomorrow, I'm going to live it up while I can. Bring on the ice cream!
