I had my thyroid removed and I feel like I have cotton balls in my head and I'm weak and light headed. Dr. says it take about four weeks for Synthroid to take effect any else have that problem?
Since your thyroid gland regulates so many chemical reactions in your body, and now you don't have one ... expect a lot of strange feelings. Your thyroid controls metabolic activities throughout your body... feeling like u have a head full of cotton balls is rather annoying but palpitations are worse. It does take time to get your Synthroid levels back to a normal range. Try not to worry, but if you start having really troublesome issues ... call your doc.
Hope all goes well with your recovery. Bless u and write back if I can look something up for you.
I was diagnosed hyperthyroid... ain't life grand. We will survive.
I just found out I have cancer on my thyroid and will have surgery soon to remove the thyroid. I will have adjustements on my Synthroid also. I will keep my eye on your questions and answers too. I know that when my Synthroid levels would change, it took a few weeks before I felt better. Hope you feel well soon! \
