Still experiencing severe hypothyroid symptoms on synthroid (thyroxine)?

Recheck labs: First thing to do is to make sure the thyroid labs are now normal. Sometimes you might have to live with normal thyroid levels for a few months to see if the symptoms improved. If thyroid levels are now completely normal on synthroid (thyroxine) and you still have all the symptoms, i think it's time to look for another cause for your symptoms. ...Read more

What symptoms of hypothyroidism appear in subclinical hypothyroidism ?

What symptoms of hypothyroidism appear in subclinical hypothyroidism ?

None: True subclinical hypothyroidism should have no symptoms because the free hormone levels are normal. It is only the TSH that is elevated. I think of this as the body is having to work a little harder to produce appropriate amounts of thyroid hormone (thus needing more TSH to meet those needs). ...Read more

Tsh normal and have goiter. Is Synthroid (thyroxine) the right answer? Hypo symptoms. Please help

Tsh normal and have goiter. Is Synthroid (thyroxine) the right answer? Hypo symptoms. Please help

Is it a nodule?: Hi. Goiter refers to abnormal size/shape of thyroid. Make sure it's not a nodule - that could be cancer. If it's a diffuse goiter, check TPO and thyroglobulin antibodies to see if it's an autoimmune goiter, which may antedate the development of thyroid function abnormalities. If it's a diffuse or Hashimoto's goiter, your thyroid function will need to be folioed over time. ...Read more
