I have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism about three years ago and just six months ago I was diagnosed with hashomotos disease. I am taking synthroid and my dr. is keeping my THS (I think that's what it is called) level at 1.0. Since I first started taking synthroid, my fatigue is a bit better, my light headedness had improved. Recently, though, I have all the sudden become short of breath randomly but often, my light headedness has gotten worse, have brittle nails, and constipated sometimes. I also now have no libido, which is hard being in a marriage with that, I am still fatigued often, have brain fogs often, and I sometimes get a little depressed. Please, can anybody help me figure out what is going on? Is this normal?
