Migraines and Hypo
I am new at this as just started 25 mcg of thyroid hormone about 2 months ago for diffused nontoxic goiter and hypothyroid. I have a history since menopause of visual auras (a neurologist thought that itís migraine without headache), but have not had an episode for 11 months... until I started the thyroid hormone. (I'm 65 now, so the auras have been going on for a few years.) Since starting medication, I have had 2 episodes of visual auras and 4 migraine-like headaches lasting 3-5 days each, all mostly in the last month - in other words, more days with headache than without. I am wondering if the thyroid problems could have been the cause all along, and the medication just triggered the headaches to start? Since we are still in the adjustment period, when the medication is at the right level is it likely that the headaches will go away? I am just miserable! Anyone else have a similar problem with headaches? (Two days ago, I had another round of blood labs, including autoimmune levels this time, and an MRI).
