Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board

I haven't been feeling that bad. When I had a TSH of 9, all I did was sleep. The only thing is I've been suffering from pain on the left side of my body for 5mths and that has gotten worse in the last week or so. (although nobody knows what it may be caused from) I've been taking .75mcg of synthroid for 8 mths now with normal levels. My surgeon said my levels may not change after total thyroidectomy) and that I may not need to change my dose. After my test results, I spoke with my endo and he's uped it to 1 1/2 pills a day now. I go back in 6wks for an exam. I'm glad I need not be concerned about such a high level of TSH. I got to looking at other peoples scores and didn't see any that high. It got me a little concerned. Thanks for the input. :)
