When I was 18 I had thyroid cancer and had to have my thyroid removed and RI treatment.
It's been four years and I found a dose that finally made me feel normal : 125 four times a week and 150 three times a week.
In jan this year my oncologist changed my medication to 125 five times a week and 150 twice a week. After about four weeks on this dose change I felt extremely tired, lack of concentration, irritability, feeling very down, bad skin etc. So I decided to change it back to the original dose.
It's only been two weeks but I'm really struggling to keep up with uni work, I'm always tired, irritable, stomach feeling unwell, I feel sick and anxious very often and university is becoming harder and harder to keep up with.
It feels ridiculous that the dose of my medication is swapped on one day, the difference of 25mcg can make me feel so unwell. Does this sound like medication issues to anyone who also takes thyroxine?
