Help with thyroid issues

I was diagnosed with hyperthyroid in 1998. I went through the rad iodine therapy and have been on syntrhoid ever since. Really have had no major problems. Recently, when i needed a refill on my RX, i suddenly found out that my doc had moved to another city and did not notifiy any of his patients. To make a long story short, I have been without my synthroid for about 2 weeks now (going to see new doc friday for blood work etc).... I feel like cr*p. Severe joint pain and muscle aches, severe fatigue, heart palps, shortness of breath. I feel like this is due to not being on my thryroid meds, but am kinda paranoid that it could be something else? Any feedback is apreciated.

Re: Help with thyroid issues

Being off your thyroid med for two weeks is the most likely reason for your problems. Those are the classic symptoms.
Hope it won't be long till you're back to normal!

Cool Re: Help with thyroid issues

I have all my old (but still current) prescription bottles for the reason you state. (I also fill them EVERY MONTH, even if I have extra - and don't need it for 1-2 weeks) So that I could get SOME med if need be.

Hope that soon after friday you're beginning to feel some relief
