For the last couple of years I've noticed my face is puffy. It's adding age and stress to my face. I was told that once my thyroid levels were at a somewhat normal level, this would taper off. Well I've slowly been upped to 125mcg of Synthroid, a bp med with diuretic, etc.. I noticed today my face is STILL quite puffy. Maybe more. What the heck? Will this ever leave?? I'm approximately 50-60 lbs thinner than I was when I started this nasty journey with my thyroid, five years ago. Granted, I'm 5 years older but the puffiness is driving me insane! Is this something that everyone battles with?

Hii have been taking levothyroxine now for seven years and my dose keeps increasing.

Does it work taking alongside my other medications? How much is recommended and where can I buy it from please?

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
