“It’s amazing after 15 years of taking Synthroid…” – Beth
…Don’t worry about your hair. Mine fell out in Dec 97/Jan 98. I ended up cutting off the few little wisps that stuck around, just cause I’d rather be totally bald, than have those silly looking things. Here it is, just over a year later, and I now have thick, wavy, shoulder length hair. At the time, my doctor had no idea why my hair fell out, he thought it was stress. Now, of course, we know it’s another of the wonderful symptoms of Wilson’s Temperature Syndrome. Just try not to stress about it. Buy a bunch of scarves to cover up, if you like, and wait it out. If you’re anything like me, your hair will come back thicker than ever before. Keep the faith.
… My doc couldn’t stress enough the importance of timing in my meds. He told me that if I was off by as little as three minutes, I could screw up the whole shebang. What I did to help me, was actually buy a pill box with a double timer on it. Every 12 hours the thing would beep and remind me to take a pill. Other people looked at me strangely, but I was used to that after monitoring my temp for so long. LOL As of now, my doctor has pronounced me cured. My temperature has been steady at 98.6 for several weeks. I feel great. It’s amazing that after 15 years of taking Synthroid, the solution could be so simple.
Stick with it. It’s worth it, and you’ll be amazed at how good you can feel.
