i think i am hypo, i have the weakness, weight gain, and a general feeling of things being in slow motion, its even hard to lift my arms above my head sometimes. im pretty sure she said hypo but i could be wrong. they put me on 50 mcg of levo thyroxine a day. how long before you notice a difference? shes repeating my bloods in 6 weeks so im assuming before then. my lethargy started about 2 months ago which was about when i had bloods drawn and i was a tad low. also, are there any side effects from the meds? and can an abnormal thyroid cause other problems in your body. i guess they are attributing it to my immune system but im not sure if that because of a guess or some test that figures it out. im going to get a copy of the bloodwork to see exactly what my levels are. thanks for the help, any info is appreciates as this is a new thing for me and i like to know all about the thigs wrong with me.
