I dont know if its the pills or if its because im pregnant but this past week ive been getting headaches and im ALWAYS tired..i wasnt this tired before and i wasnt getting headaches..
friday night-i went to bed with the kids around 8-8:30..i woke up at 5 took my pill and went back to bed then i took TWO naps saturday and by 7oclock i was sooo tired(even though my last nap was at 4)..
today i woke up with no headach..i just took my pill at 5:30..i guess im kinda waiting to see if my head starts hurting..i do see my obgyn tomorrow but im also going to call my primary..
I haven't but I personally didn't stay on Synthroid long. My hair was falling out so I found a dr willing to check my Free T3 which we learned was low so I switched & have felt much better ever since. I now take Armour. That *could* be what's going on in your case. Do they monitor your *free's*... Free T3 & Free T4? If not, I'd get them checked just to rule that out.
Well, it could just be pregnancy. But I found headaches to be quite common prior to becoming pregnant. The doctor I have now has me on a supplement of potassium/ magnesium and calcium. His input was that it would help with my headaches and with leg cramps. Both are typical with hypothyroid and increase frequency (at least for me) with pregnancy!
I'm not on Synthroid but I would ask if you've checked your levels lately. It could be pregnancy. I know I slept alot with mine. I would keep an eye on your levels though and make sure you're getting it checked at least every 6 weeks.
