You may or not know that I’ve been on generic Synthroid for over a week. I will save my discussion of generics v. name brands for another time. I’ve been keeping track of my symptoms and I have noticed a slight change.  Here are my changes:

  • Fewer naps (some days none)
  • Fewer mood swings
  • Scalp itchiness
  • Dry skin
  • Worsening insomnia
  • Memory inconsistencies

Ok so it looks like some things are better and some are not. All of this just shows me that the medicine is now in my system.  I can say that I am only experiencing about a 25% improvement so I’m not sure how I feel about it. 

Fellow Hypothyroid sufferer Steph at http://www.annoyinglydomestic.com/ sent me a link of sites that I’m trying to get through.  Among the sites was one that contained a list of “Pathetic” symptoms of Hypothyroid. Let’s examine the list, shall we? I want to point out that these symptoms can linger even while ON a thyroid med.

Less stamina than others Less energy than others Long recovery period after any activity
Chronic Low Grade Depression Often feeling cold Cold hands and feet
Constipation No eyebrows or thinning outer eyebrows Dry Hair
Hair Loss No hair growth, breaks faster than it grows Dry cracking skin
Nodding off easily Requires naps in the afternoon Inability to concentrate or read long periods of time
Forgetfulness Foggy thinking Inability to function in a relationship with anyone
NO sex drive Failure to ovulate and/or constant bleeding Moody periods
PMS Breakout on chest and arms Exhaustion in every dimension – physical, mental, spiritual, emotional
Inability to work full-time Inability to stand on feet for long periods Complete lack of motivation
Extremely crabby, irritable, intolerant of others Broken/peeling fin­gernails Dry skin or snake skin
Major anxiety/worry Ringing in ears Lactose Intolerance
No Appetite Low body temperature Allergies (which can also be a result of low cortisol–common with hypothyroid patients)
Headaches and Migraines now how do I put this one politely.…a cold bum, butt, derriere, fanny, gluteus maximus, haunches, hind­quarters, posterior, rear, and/or cheeks. Yup, really exists.  

 

NOTE:  These are only MY symptoms. If you want to examine the complete pathetic list for yourself, you’ll find it at: http://www.stopthethyroidmadness.com/long-and-pathetic/

As you may remember me complaining about: it makes it hard for one to job search when you can’t remember things.

And now this.
