Thyroid Problems leading to weight loss

Would be nice if when I called about thyroid issues I would not be invalidated by helpers who tell me thyroid medication won’t cause these type of problems. Your bloodwork shows you are a little hyperthyroid and blah, blah, blah. Doctor says do blah, blah, blah. The side effects of all thyroid medications are terrible to deal with and I am out of options and nearly needing to take out a loan to pay for it. Not FDA approved so insurance won’t cover. Yes, I am whining again. Due to thyroid imbalance my chronic pain, depression and anxiety are getting hard to deal with. Need to work on my gratitude list.

@parus arent you on the regular Thyroid meds ? Whats the FDA have to do with it?For me I only take the older meds that are tried and true.I won't be a trial @error for these new drugs Be your own health advocate you know your body better then anyone Hope you feel better

@parus It seems like you must be hyper-reactive to this medication, I wonder if there is a different one that might be better for you. I have never had any problems with levothyroxine, nor has anyone I know.
I hate it also when doctors or their nurses basically do not pay attention to your concerns and act as if you are simply wrong! The patient knows what they are feeling, the medical staff needs to remember that.
