hi I have an underactive thyroid taking 100mg thyroxin daily.

hi I have an underactive thyroid taking 100mg thyroxin daily. In recent weeks I've had a metalic taste in particular at the side of my tongue towards the back. Could this be related to my thyroid. Recent bloods taken for my annual thyroid check came back I've to have them taken again but didn't say why. Phlebotomist took them and I have to return for my GP to take them.

Diagnosed with an underactive thyroid 8 years ago was taking 125mg Levothyroxin daily. After recent annual check up found to have gone overactive now taking 100 mg 4 days a week and 75mg Levo 3 days a week. For past 6 months have developed nosebleeds, just a trickle every now and then from right nostril, could this be connected to my thyroid going over active?

Hi, I have an underactive thyroid and am currently prescribed 50mg levothroxine. I have had IBS symptoms due to work stresses and am currently experiencing some of the typical hypo symptoms (e.g. extreme fatigue, weakness). Should I take extra tablets to counter the fact that my levels may have dropped? Or any other advice?Thanks!
