Hi,,I am new to the thread and 49 years old.After 4 months of feeling so ill ,I have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism.I have just started to read about my illness and I really need advise about my condition because at the moment I am suffering with so many symptoms I feel my health is never going to get back on track.I have just been prescribed 50mg of levothyroxine sodium daily and have been taking the medication for the last 2 weeks.At the moment my symptoms include lethargy,groin pain,left side upper abdominal pain,pins and needles,tightness in my throat,dry hair and skin,eyebrow loss and muscle and back pain.A few times a week I have a feeling of dizziness and nausea which can last up to approx 1-2 hours.I am currently on sick leave from work and have been for the last 3 weeks. My G.P is currently in the process of monitoring my dosage of medication. I feel as though I am never going to get any relief from these dreadful symptoms.I long to wake up feeling refreshed with no pain,is it ever going to happen? I am desperate to get back to work also.Any advise would be much appreciated just to put my mind at rest. Anxiety is making my condition worse and I need to feel there will be light at the end of the tunnel.Help and advise would be so much appreciated and thanks for reading about my experiences with this horrible disease
