Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board

I got a diagnosis of Hashimoto's Thyroiditis....I am so relived to know that I don't have fibro, Lupus or MS.

At first, I thought he wouldn't treat me....I told him about my anti-bodies and he says "so, 40% of women have them, they don't mean anything"....UGH.....but then he felt my thyroid and it was enlarged.

He is starting me out on 50 mcg of synthroid.....is that right for the beginning?

Also....I have aches and pains and have read that those will only go away with T3...is this true?

Thanks :)
