Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board

I've had Hashi's since I was 9. I'm 23 now. I understand everything you are feeling. It may take a while for things to settle out on meds. I agree with cutting the synthroid in half until you can talk to your md. An important thing that I've learned over the years is to be very aware of my body and have a dr that you can trust. I'm getting ready to have a total thyroidectomy 11/21 because my thryoid is pressing on my vocal cords. It took a lot of pushing to get someone to pay attention to me about my symptoms. Just don't be afraid to question and make them realize that you are concerned about something. I wish you the best!
