I always felt kinda tired when I was younger and felt like I didn't have as much energy as my friends. After I had my first child I told the doctor I felt really out of energy all the time and he said probably because your tired. Many years later after my 5th child was about 4 years old I suddenly would wake in the morning and sit on the couch while he watched tv and I'd go into a deep sleep for another 3-4 hours..good thing he was good, because when I woke he was still next to me. I kept falling asleep, watching movies with hubby etc. and finally enough was enough and called endo and got tested and put on 50 mcg of levothyroxine. I now take 125 mcg and feel the best i've EVER felt since I was a kid probably..I've read pregancies can bring out autoimmune diseases such as Hashimotos and ms..Make sure you get copies of your levels and if you don't feel right within a few months get retested. Check Mary Shomans website/or facebook..lots of info.View Thread
Im not sure about the adhd meds, but I would try first to get all you past thyroid results so you can see how the numbers look. I felt like that for months and had to make lists for everything...finally my endo increased my levothyroxine and I actually have felt great since april. Another thing they should test is your vitD levels..mine was 17 and should be about 32..somewhere I read that a hypothyroid persons vitd level is good between 40 and 50, just read precautions about taking calcium with it. I felt soooo happy they gave me 50,000 units of D3 per week for 8 weeks and brought my levels back up. Oh yeah, and now I hardly ever have to make a list to remember anything. good luck..lots of info on Mary Shoman on fb or search the internet for her.View Thread
