When my dr finally placed me on medication 3 years ago (I was diagnosed with a "goiter" when I was 5), he prescribed "real" synthyroid 50 mcg. Last year my TSH went up and I started on 75 mcg "Levothyroxin", a generic brand and at my 6 month recheck, my TSH was again elevated. Now I will take Synthyroid only. I know it is four times more than brand name, but I hope I can continue to pay the $15 or so every month.
I would like info on thyroid symptoms. I do not know what they might be for me. I have always been "anxious", "flighty", had bouts of constipation and diarrhea. I have always been able to remember every stupid figure or fact, but can not tell you right now where my purse is. I have heard from my sister that memory problems are symptoms. Can anyone tell me what thyroid symptoms are?
