- 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.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (12 months ago):
I have been on the above mentioned blood pressure medication for 20 yrs my side effects have always been night sweats and a nasal drip but ive coped with that. ,I had a total thyroidectomy 12 yrs ago and have regular checks for that but 2 yrs ago my hair fell out over a period of a year, this has obviously caused me so much distress but I was not under stress at the time it happened I have had all the general treatment steroid lotion, injections in my head, steroid tablets to no avail,im desperate for any help but my dermatologist said its so hard to treat and I feel fobbed off.
From this study (2 years ago):
My new doctor found my T3 levels extremely low and T4 levels elevated. I was increased to 137 mcg/day of Synthroid after my thyroidectomy secondary to thyroid cancer. My endocrinologist only checked TSH for monitoring thyroid function and I have felt very poorly, in general for a number of years. I've had two lumbar back surgeries--an artificial disc at L5/S1 and a fusion at L4/L5. I have fairly significant further degeneration above the surgery levels found a couple of yrs. ago with a CT scan. No one has been able to tell me why I may have developed DDD, and through my research, came across the information linking hypothyroidim / Synthroid dosing with DDD. Any feedback would be most appreciated.
