Hi my name is Chrissy I am a 29 year old female.

I have had thyorid problems for the past few years and was put on 0.05mcg of synthroid and a few months ago moved to 0.25mcg of synthroid back in august half my body went numb and i had a bad headache and i had the symptoms of a stroke so i went to the hospital and they just said it was "complicated migraines" (i spent a week in the hospital) so a few weeks later i start getting real dizzy so i talk to my doctor and he says that it is probably no big deal, I ask about my thyroid and he says not to bother taking the medication anymore because i no longer need it. So here it is almost 2 months later and my upper body goes numb, i was very nauseous and dizzy so i go to the E.R they do C.T's, M.R.I's etc and find nothing...I get admitted and 2 days later a doctor comes up and tells me that my thyroid is out of wack and that i need to be back on the meds for it and he put me on 0.50mcg of synthroid (my TSH was 8.75) now i have been on the medication 5 days and i think im feeling worse...Ears ringing,tired,memory loss,nauseus,i feel like im in a daze or a dream like state, and my whole body is getting a weird warm feeling and numbness off and on....the hospital called to check on me today and the nurse said i could feel like this for a few weeks...is this true? someone please help.
