    As if I need ANOTHER health problem, I've suspected for a while it was underactive :(
    But I am pleased to finally be having the medicine. On the bright side hoping to have more energy and it should help me lose even more weight!

    Hi Sheepy, Welcome to the thousands of us who have the same affliction....:D
    Hopefully it should make quite a difference the main thing being that you will just feel so much better.

    All the best to you ... :)

    I've been on a thyriod replacement for an under active one for quite some time. But once I was on a high enough dose it really helped me feel sooo much better. So hopefully you'll feel a lot better soon too!xx

    2 months ago I was borderline, had another blood test and this time it was low enough for medicine. Its because I'm on this medicine, so as long as I'm on my current medication, I'll have an underactive thyroid :rolleyes:

    Another here, don't forget it can take up to 6 months to get your dosage right. For me they stuck me on too much and sent me very overactive for about 2 months, this gave me other problems s well.
    But at least its sorted out now it will make you feel so much better.
