I am newly dx hypoT.I started my synthroid & felt better than I had in years for about 2 weeks.Then it all came crashing down.I started feeling worse than before.I wake every am with facial swelling(my eyes swelled shut),I am so extremely exhausted(I can only drag myself from bed after about 14 hrs of sleep)I feel almost semiconsious while trying to wake myself.I literally can not wake any earlier than this. :confused: I have had a constant headache for 2 1/2 weeks straight.(Vicodin does not even help)I am suffering from:acid reflux,more severe constipation,rash off & on on my face & neck,forgetfulness,dizziness,feeling drugged,& I went deaf in my left ear for 48 hrs.These are new sympyoms on top of my original ones:muscle pain(which is now to the point where my body feels constantly bruised,can't stand to be touched),anxiety, heart palpataions, etc.I called docs office & they told me to take my papaer work & get my thyroid tests done asap.I did & assumed that I must be more hypo.Well, docs office called & said "all normal".I don't know the results cuz I NOW know they were not the right tests. :confused:They only checked TSH & free T4.(not a lot of help).Now I don't know what to do next.They told me to come in to the office the day after tomorrow.I don't know how receptive he will be to me asking for different blood work.I don't wan't to continue like this though.I was thinking of asking for a switch to Armour or Naturethroid.(I think he will be more receptive of that-The nurse said they do prescribe Armour also.)Do you think this could help for now?Then I will approach him about doing other blood tests.I think my symptoms seem to be indicative of being more hypoT: but could it be a drug reaction to synthroid or a lack of T3?I don't know what a good next step would be.Thanks for any help.
