I have recently been diagnosed with Hashimoto's Hypothyroidism. I was prescribed Levothyroxine 0.05 mg 1x per day, which I have been taking as directed since 5/04/18. I am scheduled for a re-check in about 5 weeks. I am also taking Sertraline 200mg/day and D-Amphetamine XR 30mg/day for OCD and ADHD, respectively. Yesterday I was feeling a little dizzy all day, with mild nausea (the nausea I attributed to the dizziness) and towards evening the dizziness seemed worse. I am usually someone who stays up very late, but because of the dizziness I went to sleep at 8pm. I slept straight through until 7:30 am, started to read for a bit because it was too early to take the Levothyroxine, and fell asleep again until after 11 am. I had to get up for work then, but I still felt mildly nauseated all day. The dizziness has subsided but the nausea remains.

I am a hispanic 40 year old female I am 5 6inches and I weigh 170 pounds. I have hashimoto hypothyroidism, premature ovarian failure and hyperlipidemia, when all these problems started my pap smear also began to show ASCUS, at biopsy i was negative for HPV and Herpes but through the lab they stated that I was positive for HPV, is it possible that the hashimoto is what is invading my cervix and not HPV and is there a specific test for that?

Hi I have been diagnosed with Hashimoto s Hypothyroidism 2 years ago. I am currently on 150mg of L-Thyroxin medication that is managing my symptoms well. However occasionally I get ringing in the ears, twitching eyes, and pulsating temples along with feeling very lethargic. These symptoms, are strong enough to prevent me from getting on with my daily living and prevent me from sleeping ... even though I am extremely tired. Is this a normal symptom of Hypothyroidism or could this mean that my thyroid has worsened, and is there any over counter medication that may relieve such symptoms?
