I have nevered research any medical topics online but I have to search out knowleagable people who are living with this illness for question,my husband was diagnosedwith hypothyroidism 5 weeks ago and was put on 0.05mg of levothyroxine, his doctor said he have to start at a small dose take another blood test in 6 weeks and maybe increase. My husband was first diagnosed as depressed,which I understand anyone can be depressed but then came confusion so his doctor order a ct scan of his head to look for tumors,cancer,strokes or signs of dementia but nothing was found so we are back to the hypothyrodism, he now suffersfrom severe constipation and stay cold,he have not exprienced any weight gain and he is bald already so no hair loss. He is 62 years old diabetic and a diaylsis patient which he has been doing very well with his treatment. He will now sleep all night and all day if I dont make him get up. I have had to take a leave of absence from work to help care for him because he seem so confused, I sit up every night crying not knowing what to do to help him, his primary doctor said these are symptoms of hypothyroid and to be patient it will get better, his diabetes doctor and kidney doctor said these are not symptoms and hypothroid does not make you confused but they said it could be from so many different things and they have ruled out the most common causes,his TSH is 9.94 which they say is very mild. Can anyone tell me if they have ever exprienced any kind of confusion or memory problems, any help will be gladly appreciated.
