Hello my name is Sean, I'm a 39 yo man who was diognosed with Hoshimoto's and thyroid carcinoma. In February of 2016 I had a complete thyroidectomy. They put me on 175mcg of Levothyroxine and within a month I was experiencing horrible sideffects. Come to find out I only needed 106mcg to get my numbers within range (have not had a normal tyroid panel yet last one was closest to date). I have since day one been having horrible problems with eating. I have to take the white 50mcg tablets of synthroid bc my body reacts poorly to the dyes in the medication. Right now its 5am and I woke up after about 3 hours of sleep with a real intense jittery feeling, heart palpatations, muscle spasms, chills, shivers, head and stomach ach, and a temp of 94.5 deg. Everything I eat seems to raise hell with me, gives me stomach ach, blurred vision, muscle spasms, hearing issues, and obvious exaustion and brain fog. I also wake up with this shooting sensation in my head just about everyday. It starts in different places, sometimes from ear to ear, other times from the middle of my head down my spine. Afterwards I feel very dizzy, disoriented, headach thats centered behind my eyes, and feels like my right eye is popping out of my head. All these symptoms seem to be linked to what I eat. Ive had a ct scan of my head done and they said it was clean. Going to a gastro on May 10th to speak with him. Ive had all kinds of blood work done including Cyliacs, Ultzer Cholitius, and Chrones and they all came back negative. I'm stuck, I feel like crap when I don't eat and I feel worse when I do. Ive cut out Gluten, preservitives, and dyes all together out of my diet. I seem to do ok for a few days then it comes back sometimes worse sometimes not. Anyone who has had this happen to them please I need help.
