I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism in 2001. I received radioactive iodine and was subsequently placed on synthroid. It has been a struggle for the past5 years to maintain a normal thyroid level. I am currently taking 150mcgs of medication daily. I have had a rash on my left lower back for more than a year. The rash is raised , red and painless. It doesn't itch or cause any discomfort at all. I have my thyroid levels checked every 3 to 4 months and my physician is always happy with my test results on this dose. I was wondering if my levels are too high, and this is causing my skin ailments. Any commenys or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. :confused:
