    Foggy Headedness

    I started taking levothyroxin about 1 1/2 months ago. After a week, to my surprise, I could tell I felt some better. The biggest difference was that I felt more clear headed. In the last week, I have felt the return of the foggy headedness. I hoped that the clearer sharper thinking would last longer. I see my doctor again in November; I will tell him about this sequence of changes. Anyone else have a significant problem with this issue of foggy headedness (not sure how to put it.)

    Re: Foggy Headedness

    "Brain fog "is the usual description for it and yes pretty well everyone gets it , I guess you felt better for a
    while with the surge of thyroxine that you so badly needed, but possibly by now your body has adapted to this new level and is ready for a bit more... Hopefully your doctor will be increasing your dose when you see him.

    Brain fog is not particular to Hypothyroidism, it happens with a few other conditions too. I think they are
    mostly auto immune conditions, but as thats what I mostly read about I cant be sure. But anyway, once you are fully and optimally medicated the brain fog should disappear.

    Re: Foggy Headedness

    If you have Hashis like I have I don't think you ever get truly balanced because of the various splurts from the gland due to inflammation, also the way having so much inflammation in your body makes u feel like cak, but I suppose I enjoy those less foggy times which come and go lol.

    Primary hypo that is non autoimmune seems to resolve better on meds. Early Hashis apparently can be treated for a while then resolve but that is according to Dr Langer and I have no idea who's reasearch he was basing that on.

    Anyway a little more thyroxine might just crack it for you, keep raising every couple of months with the Drs direction and you might be a new woman, I hope so
    take care
    luv Dawnx

    Re: Foggy Headedness

    Thank you Ginny. Of course it is Brain Fog, but those words weren't coming to me when I posted this thread. Also Ginny, I understand what you're saying about brain fog and autoimmune conditions; from what I've read that makes sense. I was diagnosed with Mitral Valve Prolapse many years ago; it is usually a benign condition, but is believed to be connected to an autoimmune condition aptly called Mitral Valve Prolapse Syndrome. Brain fog definitely has been an issue for me long before the diagnosis of Hypothyroidism. I was surprised to experience the slight and short-lived improvement that I did.

    Dawn, LOL, I may feel like a new woman, that is, if I were a woman. LOL. I'm still a guy thankfully.
