  • 3Symptoms of low thyroid?

    I am a 26 year old female. My doctor told me I have low thyroid after he got the results of blood work he had drawn on me. I have been taking Levothyroxine, only 25mgs a day. That is the lowest does. He said he wanted to eventually take me higher, as that is very low. I moved, and do not have a doctor, and it will take me a while to get one. I have been having some health concerns, and I was wondering if they could be due to the low thyroid, not being cured because of the low dose of medicine. My hair is very brittle, and up top it is thinning, almost like someone cut it. My throat seems to get hoarse. Very dizzy. The dizziness is the most concerning for me. Can anyone who is reading this tell me what they think from what I have said here? Also, what symptoms do you know of? Thanks a lot.

  • 5When do thyroid symptoms go away with treatment?

    I have been diagnosed with having a very active thyroid and I will see my doctor and endocrinologist in a week . I've been experiencing depression , panic attacks , obsessive worrying thoughts , fatigue and a general apathy for about six months. My doctor says that this has to do with how bad my thyroid is . However, once you receive treatment for thyroid ( taking the correct dose of medication ) , will my emotional symptoms disappear ? NEVER was well before six months. All this just started so early, anxiety and all. So , how long will it take for emotional symptoms to go away? It was really upsetting to me and I just want to be myself and I feel again. Any input is appreciated , especially from someone in the medical field !

  • 7Can increasing dosage of Thyroid cause Symptoms?

    I have been taking Synthroid 0.88 for two people in a year and a half . I recently got my blood for my thryoid levels and my doctor increased my dose to 100 . Since then I have been feeling very tired , confused, depressed , and I feel like sleeping all day. I have no energy or motivation to do anything . So my question is if I have been on 88 for two in one and a half and then just increase my dose may have no symptoms or not ?

  • 8Question on clonazepam: Am I experiencing withrawal symptoms, or just symptoms of my anxiety/depression prob?

    I was taking clonazepam for about a month and a half , 0.5 mg at night , so it's not much . I recently took this medication and have been having a lot of problems with insomnia and panic attacks , anxiety , tremors , chest tightness , etc. My problem is: What is causing anxiety / depression this, or withdrawal of the clone. ? The seating in the lower dose has little time for withdrawal symptoms , and if so, lasting a week or just a couple of nights ? Usually no symptoms of withdrawal (at least those who really noticable ) when coming off of drugs , except when I went effexor , but I was on a very high dose of that. The only reason I 'm asking this question is that lack of sleep is literally going crazy , and just makes me feel worse . So even though I'll be talking to my psych about it further , I thought I would get opinions / experiences of you as well: . - D Thanks : - D

  • 10Is my doctor doing all he can for my thyroid?

    A couple of weeks ago I had blood work done and was told that they have an overactive thyroid . I have almost all the symptoms (hair loss , fatigue , depression , anxiety , chest pain , thoughts unclear ) . My doctor wanted to wait a month for more testing . I insisted that I could not wait that long and got them within two weeks. They said nothing new . Now my doctor wants to wait another 6-8 weeks for more tests. I have two small children to look after and can not go at this time with these symptoms . Should I change doctors or should I wait for more blood ? Any help and knowledge of overactive thyroid would be helpful !
