Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board

thanks for your reply. I did check out a few websites which did mention shortness of breath, chest tightness, but I was just curious how common this symptom is. I am hypo and currently taking .88 mg Synthroid.
I was just diagnosed with mily hypo- will start on synthroid Monday am- I have ,not really shortness of breath, but I always seem to be sighing as if trying to catch my breath, but I don't feel winded- both doctors (I went for a second opinion yesterday) said they never heard of that as a symptom- also I clear my throat a lot and and doctors never heard of that either- don't know if anyone has that syptom or what that could be

I can relate. As I was reading this post I was starting to yawn and I couldn't finish it. I never thought that it was related to being hypo. I always just thought that I was weird when this happened. (Ummmmmmmm, maybe I am anyway!! hee...hee...)Will the synthroid help with weirdness????????

I have definitely read about the clearing your throat thing and about the yawning. It is a hypo thing for sure.
What exactly is the Coenzyme 10 going to do? Would this be ok to take with Synthroid?

CoQ10 is an antioxidant and can restore energy reserves at a cellular level and help build the immune system.

I don't know exactly what it will do now, but I did take it many years ago and remembered it made me feel better. I stopped because it is a rather expensive supplement. I don't see how it would be a problem with your Synthroid, but that is only my opinion. I take a natural thyroid supplement rather than the Synthroid.
