Since on synthroid i have been irritable and having bouts of diahrea
Hi, yes it does... Diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal cramps (stomach cramps),
These are serious side effects, contact your Doctor ASAP... from a caring individual.
Do not wait.
I would take some imodium when this occurs. For years i would just deal with it when i would have episodes of diahrea then my aunt said take an imodium. I thought damn why didnt i think of that.
I did see somethings to watch for;
:Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; flushing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue; unusual hoarseness); changes in appetite; changes in menstrual periods; chest pain; diarrhea; excessive sweating; fast or irregular heartbeat; fever; heat intolerance; joint pain; leg cramps; mental or mood changes (eg, anxiety, irritability, nervousness); muscle weakness; seizures; severe or persistent headache or fatigue; shortness of breath; stomach cramps; tremors; trouble sleeping; unusual weight gain or weight loss; vomiting; wheezing.
I have been on synthroid since I was 18, and at the age of 38, had most of my thyroid removed. I used to know every restroom, on any given route I used, from Virginia, to Florida. I found the drug, 'Lomotil", somewhere, and asked my doc for a script. He was really stingy with it. I found out that it is a controlled drug, and it would be hard to get. I was in the hospital for other things, and a colonoscopy was ordered. The gastro doc that did it, seemed like a keeper. I talked to him, and told him that I knew that the diarhea was caused by nothing other than the synthroid. I told him that I'd had it for as long as I was on the drug, and when I stopped it for a few days, the symptoms went away. I told him that I had decided to stop the medication.
I was tired of living my life on the toilet! Simple as that.I suppose that he realized that I was dead serious, and decided that if someone needs one drug for life, they have to have it, and if I would take both drugs, that was fine. It has been 18 years. Remember, it is your body. Find a doc who will consider your opinions!
Hi Re Re,
If your having upper arm pain, you might be hypo right now. Muscle pain is one of the symptoms of being hypo.
