 Please tell me people don’t die from this.  Had my thyroid out exactly a year ago.  It has been a roller coaster ride since.  I’m back and forth between hyper and hypo.  Am currently on 100 mg of thyroxine.  I see GP monthly and can usually only say “I’m just sick” all the time.  Symptoms are so varied and sometime so vague I don’t know what they are exactly.   My mind says go and do but my body doesn’t cooperate.  Tingling sensations in chest.  Tightness in throat and chest.  Chills or excessive sweating.  Weight gain.  Any suggestions?

    Hi

    keep reading all the posts regarding levothyroxine on this site we are all having the same problems all the symptoms you have I have.  I am taking my medication at night and that helped for a while.  Others who know more about this will ask for your last blood tests and advise accordingly.  Stay strong you are not alone smile

      Thanks for reply Christine.  I should have said levothyroxine.  I’ve heard where some do better on name brand instead of generic for some meds but haven’t seen that discussion here.  My Doc is willing to try anything so maybe that should be next.

    Has your weight or diet fluxuated before the gain?  I notice a rapid change in my response to thyroid medication depending on my diet (usually grain free, no soy or gluten) and weight.  When I gain even a little bit of weight (from eating more carbs) I feel very hypo but feel hyper when I mange to lose weight.  Have you tried a thyroid support supplement with selenium, methyl B12, and zinc?
