It's a long story, but I couldn't take the meds, couldn't do radioactive iodine, so through thyroid strorms, heart problems, allergic reactions
, I had to have my thyroid removed in Dec. Since the surgery, I have been taking synthroid. My dr. added cytomel in Feb. because my body wasn't producing any t3 on it own. I have gained 45 pounds, my hair is falling out (I have lost over half of my hair) and the WORST part is I have facial swelling and eye swelling!!!
