Now that i don't have a thyroid, due to thyroid cancer, I have to monitor my hormone levels several times a year and take a replacement thyroid hormone med every day. It is amazing how the thyroid regulates so many other hormones in body - brain function, body temp, weight, and oh so much more.
Two months ago I found out my Thyroid levels were too high and the doctors have adjusted my meds which is good but the side effects are that I feel lethargic, fuzzy brained and unmotivated. The doctor tells me that for the past year, it has been like I have been wired on caffeine and now, what I am feeling is just me noticing the change; but for me it feels like when I had the thyroid cancer almost 15 years ago.
I DON'T LIKE IT.
I NOW HAVE TO WAIT. Per the doctor, from a new blood test, my hormone levels are spot on and I need to give my body time to adjust. So now I wait for another month and then we will do more blood tests to make sure not only that my hormone levels have settled but that my symptoms have "normalized" too.
