I was diagnosed hypothyroid about four years ago, prescribied Levothyroxine and have regular three-monthly blood tests. Mostly, the results come back normal, although my dosage does have to be altered occasionally. However, although most of the time I feel ok, I have periods when I most certainly don't. All the original symptoms come back, with fatigue, lethargy and a puffy face being the worst. Of course, I can never book a blood test during these periods which last about a week to ten days before easing! The other thing I have noticed is that my throat swells quite noticeably during these times. Does anyone else experience this? And shouldn't my thyroid be stable after all this time?
