Hello, I wondered if I can have some advice. Went to the Doctor as I was having severe carpal tunnel and I was having a lot of pains in my hands. By the time, I went to a specialist I had started retaining fluid, he suggested I have my thyroid checked. Anyways bottom line is my TSH came back at 477.30 which explains why I have felt pretty crappy the last while( yes I had most of the symptoms but thought because I was 46 I was just getting old), they started me on 150mg of Synthroid and I have been only taking it for 3 weeks. I just got a letter to see about the CTS surgery on my wrists but from what I have been reading, I am not sure whether I even need the surgery. But my big question is how long before I start feeling better?? I go back for more blood test and to see the doctor next week. Do all the symptoms reverse when you get your TSH back to a normal range? How long does it take to get the TSH back to normal? I guess I thought by the next doctor appointment, I would feel like I made some progress but I feel the same as I did a month ago which is pretty depressing.
