Hi Sheri ~ My uneducated guess is that your meds are still low/WRONG that is why your still shedding hair. Since you started the 100 Synthroid & 5 Cytomel, when were your last labs done
?? (should be monitored every 6-8 weeks)
Thy meds ARE NOT like taking asprin, therefore NOT an instant FIX Personally I find it AMAZING what Dr's forget to tell us!!!
Also another mistake Doctors make is getting a patient barely IN TO normal
, then thinking he/she is DONE treating you. (<-often still complaining of SYMPTOMS}
While your labs may be normal
there is OFTEN room for improvement while still WITHIN the ranges.
Perhaps you should get a book? I recommend: Living Well w/ Hypo-Thy
, SOLVED: the riddle of illness
and recently purchased STOP the thy madness
Hope you get some answers soon
