Hello. I have been taking levothyroxine for 40 years plus and about one year ago I developed hoarseness and loss of voice. I didn't attribute this to my thyroid problem initially but I came upon your site today. I there anything I should do? Is this because T4 levels or TSH levels are all "upset". Thank you .
I have a variety of things wrong with me and Dr's are continually trying meds on me for my pain and arthritis to slow it down and try alot for non narcotics which are useless on me but if I have a new dr I usually humor them and try what they are pushing (let's say I have more knowledge then most pharmaceutical reps) I always do my homework on any med I take the 1 exception proved almost fatal. My dr said to take gabapentin, hadn't heard of it and usually before I inject something I research it, this is where it went horribly wrong I was on it less then 6 wks and had just been to the Dr and picked up my months scripts walked out to the parking lot and recall nothing until I woke up with my cousin and a friend who saw me go down. I must have had 6 grand Mal seizures in the parking lot but was confused and freaked and didn't want to go back in for fear of it being sent to the hospital. So I had my cousin drive me home. Since then I have no or little short term memory and it has destroyed most of my long term memory. I now have a combo of myoclonic, clinic and a tonic seizures and mostly a combo of the 3 together. I was late 30's when this happened a couple yrs back and sometimes have months of these seizures happening and not letting up. I was furious when I looked up the info on this and found its made for epilepsy but can also induce seizures because I never take a medicine that isn't being used for what it was invented, I never take things if it's a 2 or 3 or 4th thing it's being used for. Please don't take this med unless you have to. It's ruined my life by taking away memories I could be building with my family and I live in fear of when these strike.
