How Long Till I Feel Better

I am fairly new to the Hypothyroid madness. I have been unable to work for over 6 months now and was being treated for depression, which didn't make sense but I had all the symptoms so went along with it all. My voice was getting very deep and hair falling out and every part of my body aching etc but the fatigue was the worst. Long story short I requested a thyroid test and my TSH came back at 90. I have been on meds now for 6 weeks and my level is now around 25 - but when will I start to feel better. Would like to hear from anyone who has had very high TSH levels, now normal and how long before life returns to normal. When my TSH is normal will I be better then?????

Your doctor should be monitoring your levels and adjusting your meds accordingly. Once your meds are right, and working correctly, you should return to that feeling of normalcy.<br />

I personally have to go off my medication once a year for a month or so for a full body scan, and it sucks. I feel exhausted, depressed, freezing cold...but once I start taking my meds again it takes about a week or 2 for them to really kick back in and work right.<br />

Just keep monitoring how you feel and keep your doctor updated. The more they know about how you're feeling, the better they can work to get you the correct dose and help you feel better faster :) If you have any questions or would like to chat, feel free to message me :)
