I was diagnosed as hypothyroid this week after i noticed a small goitre, put two and two together with a raft of symptoms such as depression and total exhaustion, vertigo etc... and have been put on 50mg Levothyroxine. My results were T4 14.5 and TSH 7.35. The doc said that she'll do a more detailed blood panel in two months to test how my medication is going.
The doc said my pituitary gland was working overtime to make my thyroid work. I am quite confused by it all to be honest. Does anyone have a link to some information that I can trust? I don't like to just read anything I find on the net, you can't trust it all!
I can't wait to get some energy, my house looks like a bomb site and all I can do is look at it... How long does it take for the medication to have some effect? I suppose everyone is different and that is probably a stupid question!
Also, will the goitre go away or am I stuck with it for life now?
