Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board


I just got my new labs back, and they look great! Here they are!

TSH 1.42
T3 3.2
T4 1.2

I was DX'd with Hashimoto, and I am now on 75 mcg of Synthroid.. Endo Upped it from 50, hoping this would help with Fatigue, and so far, it is not helping in that aspect :confused: Does anyone have any tips or advise on combating this? Part of me is wondering if it is even my thyroid causing the fatigue. I was tested for Anemia, and that looks good.. So I am clueless as too why I am so darn tired!

I don't go back for another 6 months too see Endo, and frankly.. Not sure I can hold out another 6 months with Fatigue like this.

Anyone have any thoughts on why I am still fighting this fatigue? HELP!!

Hi Missy,
I just wanted to reply to let you know you are NOT alone in your frustration over being dog tired!

I too have Hashimoto's (diagnosed last month, started 50 mcg of Synthroid the next day) and I am exhausted! Like you, I am wondering WHY I am so tired, when I used to be the type of person who was go-go-go all day long.

I am finding with the course of treatment I will have good days and bad days....from what I can figure part of that is just the disease itself.

It is terribly frustrating when you eat right, drink lots of water, get your exercise...and feel like a zombie walking throughout the day. :eek:

Hang in there, hopefully things will be looking up for you soon!
