5 years ago I had a Total thyroidectomy and radioactive iodine after that. Everything was successful.
Was taking for 3 years Synthroid 125mcg. Was working great and then the past 2 years the medicine has caused such bad side effects that they even tried unithroid, tirosint, levoxyl, levothyroxine, armour, compounding all give me bad gastrointestinal side effects, IBS, heart palpitations, and muscle spasms in my right shoulder and back. When I was on for 3 years my numbers were perfect. Now i am hypothyroid because the side effects are so bad it's hard to take the full dose.
Has anyone experienced bad side effects like this from thyroid replacement medicine?
Would be much appreciated if someone could shed some light on this. The doctors are baffled and i need the thyroid medicine to survive.
