I just wanted to say that I agree with Liz. I was diagnosed in 2013, had RA and struggled to find the right dose of Synthroid. In the meantime I developed 2 fairly large nodules, which started to interfere with breathing and sleeping. In August of last year I finally had a total thyroidectomy and I am happy.
It’s only my personal story. Everyone is different and what is right for one may not be right for someone else.
I wish you the very best, hope that you can feel better soon.
Don’t give up, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
