Question
Why is it that I don't have any symptoms of Hypothyroid other then my TSH is high 9.11
but when the Dr. puts me on Levothyroxine and my numbers go into the normal range I have all kinds of symptoms/side effects.

Answer
Hello Corinne,
Warm welcome to you!
The condition you are having is called 'Subclinical Hypothyroidism'. Yes if you are put on wrong dose of levothyroxine then you would tend to show side effects. I think you should test your antithyroid antibodies. If they are positive then only you need to take levothyroxine. Otherwise no need to take it.

Thanking you!
