Patient Comments: Thyroid Disease - Symptoms and Signs

What signs and symptoms did you experience with your thyroid disease?

Comment from: JB, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: November 02

Doctors always tell me that I have hypothyroidism, based on my tsh levels, I am doubtful since I only have a problem with hair loss. I have tried Levothyroxine before, but I experienced heart palpitations, and I have been told by a new doctor that I need medication again, no thanks.

I have been taking Levoxyl 137MCG half tablet every day for the last two years, now my doctor prescribes Levoxyl 75MCG. I have constipation, always cold some hair falling out. Tell me if I will be better with this medication or I need something different.
