Wow, did I ever speak too soon with the increase of the Synthroid! It is now six weeks later and my levels are way too high; no wonder I have started feeling so horrible! I can’t seem to get my levels right. One dose is too low and another is way too high. It makes me wonder if I will be one of those patients that can never get their levels right – this can be so frustrating! Moreover, I am just grateful that I have an endo who doesn’t just look at numbers, but also takes into consideration into how I feel; since we switched to the Synthroid I just have not felt well and have had many different issues – I have had the fatigue again, a lot of joint and muscle pain and major brain fog. So now we are going to try a different brand by using Tirosint. I have talked with many people who have had positive results and feel so much better, being that they had to switch from Levoxyl as well. The thing with Tirosint is that it is pure gel form and doesn’t contain any filler’s which I think is a major problem for some people as they don’t respond well to it and have many issues because of it. I really love the fact of how open my endo is to new ideas and doing those things that will be of benefit to me and helping me to have a better quality of life.
