  • Cardio version caused fingernail abnormalities
    Right hip fracture. When prepping for surgery AFIB was found. Surgery was cancelled and they attempted to get AFIB under control. Finally, cardioversion was performed. When my nails started to grow out they all had two horizontal lines that cause the nail to break when it grows out to that point.
  • Synthroid and breast enlargement
    I have went from a B-C cup size to a D cup in the past 8-9 months.
  • Double vision on levothyroxine
    Diagnosed with under active thyroid in January 2011. Noticed onset of double vision in January 2014. Blurred vision and double vision worsened to such an extent that my glasses prescription has changed three times in less than 7 months. All the symptons I experience are a direct result of taking Levothyrixine and have increased as my dose has been increased.
  • I switched to armour ,it's not synthetic.
    I went off after 7 years on it when I discovered a link to a higher rate of lung cancer. I switched to Armour and it handled the hypothyroidism way better.

  • High blood pressure - find the right medication (2 responses)
    I was going through the menopause with all the usual drama when I started feeling awful. Doc said that my blood pressure was through the roof and prescribed Lisinopril. This gave me technicolour dreams and a runny nose, so he switched me to Losartan. This made me soooo tired that I didn't want to get up. So then I tried Amlopidine. Fantastic! I haven't felt this well since I was on my teens. My message is ... don't put up with side effects. Change your drug until you find the one that works for you.

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • 40 years ago diagnosed graves disease and had radioactive iodine treatment, then subsequent years on synthroid. Lately, Dr. has had to adjust levels of drug because he is having a hard time regulating TSH. 14 years ago stage 2 aggressive breast cancer, it was not found on mammogram but a lump just popped out. I had a lumpechtomy followed by chemo and radiation. Yesterday, they found another lump in the same breast. I have been experiencing moderate pain upper back left side as if it was behind my breast, twinges in underarm as well. I had a core biopscy ultra sound guided yesterday. I do not know the latest results if cancer has come back. I got Universal alopecia Aerata 7 years ago.

  • I truly believe I got graves diease from
    The depo shot. I was very healthy before. I only suffered from
    Mirgraines. After being on the shot for a few years I got very sick and
    They never link to the depo, I always knew it. My period didnt come
    Back and the gyno put me on the genetic pills
    It came back after 4 months.. While
    Being sick with graves I had to get the RAI treatment and now I take the pill
    Everyday for the rest of my life, however the doctors
    Have a had time getting me regular because I'm in my late 20s and the battle continues... I would like to have children... So hopefully after my levels are regular this can be done.. I just started going back to get my blood work done every 6 weeks... From
    3 moths to try just a little bit harder... Thanks depo!!
