Red face can your thyrold cause horrible horrible headaches if iyour tsh is high???

hi all im just wondering something i have been suffering for along time now with the horrible horrible headaches ,but when my tsh was normal range my head didnt hurt like it does now my last labs are

t3 free_319________range_230_420 pg/dl
total cortisol_17.1________range_8am_4.0_22.0 _4pm_3.0_17.0
acth,plasma_21________range_5-27 pg/ml

so does any of this cause horrible headaches ? right after my surgery my head hurt but nothing like now but the dr i was seeing wouldnt test my thyrold for allmost 2 yrs then when it was found by a psychiatrist it was 8.45 then when it was withing range at 1.1 and t4 was 1.9 i didnt have this bad a headache im praying the endo calls me something in so i can get my life back i know there are tons and tons of thyrold meds out there tomorrow will be day 8 without meds but i had no choise but to stop taking them because of the side effects all this time 8 long mos i suffered with fainting spells ,passingout and then when i went on levoxyl i started getting seizures but so far since stopping the meds i have not fell down once but i do have the horrible horrible headaches and they are killing me im taking advil liqud gell every 4 hrs they arent helping but i tried tylenol and those didnt work either so can headaches come from our thyrolds or whats up with my headaches my brothers are hyper and they dont get the headaches my sister said she did but they are so unbearable i thought i was doing ok but im not i need my meds but i refuse to take any that will cause me to have the fainting or seizures after all this time me and hubby figured it out that my fainting and seizures were from the thyrold meds i was taking i wont take anything that has the same stuff in them im sure there is something out there for me and to help me but one good thing is at least im not fainting or passingout or having the seizures tomorrow will be day 8 with no falls so what gives ??? please need some advice here my head feels like its going to bust and i cant handle this illness much more how long does it take for a dr to get you on the right meds and the right dose my sister has had it for 12 yrs and shes on 100mcgs but my endo told me id prob be on the 50mcgs for life and no higher which is ok by me as long as i can have my life back .....

Have you ever had you ferritin level checked?

Optimal ferritin is between 70 & 90.

Ferritin is NOT the same thing as hemeglobin.
25 years feeling worse every year on Synthroid & 13 months feel good on Armour Thyroid.

I don't know if thyroid can cause headaches or not but I got bad headaches from synthroid. I have had seizures from meds also & it is very scarey. Have you tried Armour. So far I haven't had a seizure or headache from a low dose of Armour. Could your headache be a migraine? Hope you're better soon.
