Anyone Just Feel Disgusting/Hungover?

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have Hashi's and am hypo, with a high TSH but normal everything else.  

I've read the symptom list for hypothyroidism and I must say I don't have half of the symptoms that are on it.  I do, however, feel what I would call "disgusting" periodically throughout the day.  

I will wake up feeling a bit off and it can either go away after breakfast or come on and stay with me throughout the day.  It can consist of neck/shoulder/head pain, slight nausea, and a general wooziness that makes looking to the left or the right quickly unpleasent.  It's not dizziness, it's like a hangover type feeling.  Enough to ruin your day basically.

I have been on Tirosint 13 mcg since May, now on 25 mcgs.  I am so hopeful of course that the symptoms subside but in the meantime, does anyone else feel like this?  Maybe this is what "thyroid related fatigue" is all about?!  I'm concerned that I may have something other than hypothyroidism and am barking up the wrong tree.

Thanks in advance for any feedback you might have,

    Your symptoms are quite typical for hypothyroidism, but I would suggest getting a general physical and a range of tests including heamatology etc to make sure you are not anaemic or something else.

      Thanks Dave, your comment helped to soothe my nerves. I was anemic last year and my ferritin is finally up to 77. I would think the symptoms of anemia would be gone by now but maybe not. If I feel this way after a couple more months on Tirosint I will start to look elsewhere. Thanks again.

    Yes, Rose. You mean when you wake up, that feeling like you were run over by a truck? Yup. Know it well.
