*there, there*

i wish i had some sage advice for you, but alas…i do not. sounds like a day of snuggling up with some good TV/movies/music and relaxing. anything to get your mind off of the symptoms! my period is due any day now and i have a lot of the symptoms you are describing at the moment. my size 2’s feel like 00’s, my boobs are so sensitive that my bra hurts them by just being on, i have a zit on my forehead that should require it’s own zip code, i have hot flashes so bad that it makes me dizzy, nausea and cramps. and to top it ALL off – i have a cold! i am such a good time over here…woohoo! to make matters even worse, today is me + FIs 3 year dating anniversary and we have reservations at this restaurant downtown tonight that i have been dying to try…and i can’t taste anything!!! grrrrrrrrr!

@runsyellowlites: Girlie, I’m right next to you… Thyroid problems for 10+ years… TT/Thyroid Cancer/Hashimoto’s… it’s been a long road.  I read your symptoms and I often feel that same exact way lately and I’ve never been on BC.

I’d be hypo over hyper anyday — although with hypo the heart palp can still happen.  It all just sucks!!! :::venting::: sorry 🙁

I would love to hear about your pregnancy, ect. for us girls without a thyroid! : ) I am dreading another medicine change/increase when that day comes for me.

ETA: Last thing!  Make sure you take your meds early in the morning!  It’s best to keep them on your nightstand with a glass of water at night.  Then as soon as your eyes pop open you can take it.  By the time I shower, walk the dog and all that good stuff an hour or 2 has passed and I can eat : )  And make sure never to take Iron or Calcium within 4 hours of your meds.

You mentioned how your BC and thyroid medication interact.  If your symptoms don’t go away soon, you may want to consider talking to your doctor/nurse practitioner about your dose of thyroid medication.  Birth control (the estrogen part) can decrease the effect of the thyroid medication, so if you’ve been on both for a while, it’s likely that the dose was adjusted/ worked well while you were on both medications.  Now that you’re off the BC, the dose of the thyroid medication may need to be lowered a little bit.

Good luck!

Edit: If you already knew all that, you can ignore my post.  I hope are feeling better soon!
