I’ve been dealing with nerve pain for about six months now, and it has been just getting worse, including headaches, light sensitivity in my eyes, and confusion at times. About 6 months ago, when the nerve pain got worse due to psychological issues, I started taking Zoloft to help with it. I also started taking synthroid, at the doctor’s suggestion, though for the past 15 years I have avoided it, choosing instead to take thyroid nourishing supplements or natural thyroid hormone instead. Well, I forgot to pick up my synthroid from the pharmacy a few days ago and went without it for a couple days, and low and behold, the constant tingling in my hands and feet went away, and my head feels clearer, and I feel less anxious.
I still have some symptoms of nerve tingling on my right side, which I had before starting the synthroid, but I guess the synthetic thyroid medicine was a little too much for me, even though it was the lowest dose.
I am curious to see how I feel if I continue going without the synthroid. I was about to go in for more tests with the neurologist, but I cancelled when I realized the synthroid was causing the more constant symptoms!
