I was recently DX with Hypothyroidism and am scared to

I was recently DX with Hypothyroidism and am scared to even start the medication mailed to me by the clinic I use, I do not want to lose my hair. I dont have symptoms except weight gain, but blame this on having a back injury and having surgery 6 months of restricted work. I usually get in up to 19,000 steps a day and went to hardley 5,000. What happens if I just dont start the meds. I know if stopping after starting is a problem ,but if I dont start what will happen. I think stress brought the high numbers and I also have a above normal A1C. The physicians asst. doesnt know I havnt started the pills.

Any advice is appreciated !

Hi Dr. Grief, was recently diagnosed with Hypothyroidism and I know the cutoff level is 3.5 and mine was a 9 so my doctore is referring me to an Endocrinogolist however I haven t heard back from them and I have called everyday and left messages. I know I need a referall which is why they are handling it but wonder is this a true Emergency other than that fact that I am having severe symptoms. I also wondering if nausea and vommiting are symptons as well. Any advice you can product on this or if I need to just go to the ER please let me know and Thank You so much for your response and time. Lisa Piechocki
