Hello! In August of 2014 my doctor retested my thyroid and decided to take me from 125 down to 50 on my levothyroxine medication. For the first few months I somehow got my bottles mixed up and was taking some of the 50 on some days and then the 125s on other days. Once I finally got that figured out I stayed on the 50 for the two months like they told me to do the recheck. I noticed that I started getting a lot of headaches which I normally do not get. I also was starting to get dizzy on a regular basis which wasn't like me either. I finally made it to the two months we rechecked me and they changed my dosage again up to 75. I have only been on that for less than two weeks but I have had major problems with headaches, exremly blurring vision to the point of not being able to read a text message because it was blurring and blacking out, tunnel vision all things that are not normal to me and are scaring me. I don't like the idea of this happening while I'm driving. I talked to the Dr today and they were concerned about my birth control and was worried there might be issues with blood clotting. I have been on the same birth control for over 8 years and have never felt like this except recently. I'm convinced it has to be thyroid related since that is the only thing that has changed. Has anyone ran into this or have any ideas? Thank you all so much in advance!
