So, I have been on this thyroid medication for about a week and a half. It has me wondering if this is a miracle drug or is it just a coincidence that I am feeling better? A coincidence in that I happened to change my diet at the same time that I started the new med. so it may be a combination of the two things. Either way, I FEEL BETTER!

For starters, I am sleeping better. This has resulted in my daily brain fog dissipating, making it a little easier for me to think. Also, my chronically dry, flaky skin has been improving and it is a whole lot less itchy. Plus, the lymphedema in my legs has lessened drastically. Whether it is the improved diet or the meds, I am thrilled.

Now if I could just get some decent pain relief, weight loss surgery, and a couple of new hips, I'd be a whole new woman!

Yeay! I'm glad you are feeling better. The improvement in the weather helps some too, I bet. Keep up with the good work! You are doing awesome.

My doc says I will need new hips but not for another 10 years! Mainly because for some reason they don't like to do them here until a person is 60.
I just bought myself a Power Chair. I'll be able to run people down now who get in my way or patronize me! ;-)

I'm so happy that you are feeling better! Thyroid medicine does seem like a miracle, I remember when I first took it, it was about 2 weeks later and I felt so much better I started realizing how many awful symptoms I had before. You kind of don't realize how awful you felt before.
