Hi all, I was recently diagnosed with Hypothyroidism and my Doctor prescribed me 100mcg of Levothyroxine. I am a 24 year old female and on no other medication or supplements I took it for about 2 weeks before I started having terrible headaches and chest pain. I then stopped taking the medication and all of the issues subsided.
My doctor has now prescribed me 88mcg of Levothyroxine but because I was so scared of the side effects from my first dose I have only been taking half of my pill. I have been taking the ~44mcg's for 17 days and again I am experiencing chest pain, although it is not as bad as the first time, it is just constant. I am also EXTREMELY tired, more so than before I started the medication but I also feel anxious and shaky.
Is this normal and can anyone provide some insight or suggestions as to what I should do? I am going to try to make an appt. with my Doctor tomorrow but I feel there is great benefit in hearing what those who actually have the same issues have to say. Thank you!
