I found myself having mild hypothyroidism, with the typical sleepiness, being slow in thought, having slightly dry skin, etc. I knew this was coming, because a couple of years back I had undergone radioiodine therapy for my hyperthyroidism.
For over a week now I'm on 50mcg levothyroxine. I guess somewhere around the day 3 of taking it I developed this horribly dry skin. Needless to say, it itches all over. It's way more dry than it was before.
So here's my question... is it normal? Did anybody here have the same thing? I really hope it's just something that happens after starting with a new dosis and passes after a while.
I honestly don't think that the dosis I get is too high, though I know that would explain the dry skin. It's just that I know very well how having too much thyroid hormones feels like... and that's not it. I'm still rather slow and sleepy and all that.
Let me know what you think of it.
