My wife is experiencing multiple issues/symptoms since she has had her thyroid removed: rashes (think it is ringworm); continuous eye twitching; pain and numbness in leg; head aches -- not sure what else.

The doctors keep changing her medicinal combinations. My question is multi-fold: Is this normal? how long should we expect to experience this before medication can "normalize" body? how often should doctor be changing the balance of medicine; with those symptoms noted, what will this lead to if not corrected?

  • None of the symptoms you mention are related to thyroid problems... Could there be something else going on? Kiera

  • Kiera:Thank you for taking the time to reply. Add to that an unusual frequency of bloody noses (but I had attributed that to general dryness in air as cold weather sets in--and we had begun using humidifier at night). Now, as a matter of reporting, her surgery was only one month ago.. so many of those symptoms are relatively new---so what else could it be?
