Throbbing behind the ear. On thyroid medication. Feeling tired

hi started thyroid medication 3 days ago, ever since been getting throbbing just behind and above my left ear. Eyes feeling puffy. Had lots of energy the first 2 days and I realise that this is possibly placebo as I know it takes a few weeks to notice affects but my T3 and T4 levels were very low. Feeling very tired today.

As you rightly mentioned, the effects of thyroid medications usually is apparent after a week or two.
However your present thyroid condition may itself be related to your symptoms. In any case if the symptoms persists then it is recommended to consult your doctor.
