Hypothyroidism along with epilepsy

I was diagnosed around 5 months ago. My periods have been messed up for awhile now. Before the thyroid diagnosis. I’m 36 and my obgyn is the one who caught my hypothyroidism and put me on 75mg generic synthroid. No I’m sorry that’s what I’m so confused about. If he’s doing blood work to look at all those. If that makes sense. When I ask his nurses if it’s in normal range they say they can’t answer that because everyone is different. If I understand right it’s supposed to be around 4 I believe. Yes I know when I faint it’s a seizure but I think this all ties together. I reached out to my epileptolgist for a referral to a endocrinologist with no luck yet. I haven’t had blood work done for my thyroid in awhile. So that worries me too.

Hi Jaderm. I can see why you have questions. If the gynecologist is the one prescribing the thyroid, he/she should be monitoring it right now and answering your questions regarding symptoms which may or may not be related. Primary care physicians can do the blood work and dosing as well. Has your fainting been addressed? Clarified? What are the triggers?
