I went to the Doctors today and good news is that after my blood pressure medication was lowered 3 weeks ago my Blood pressure is still good, actually she said great. I go back in 6 weeks and if it's still good she may lower my dose again.
I haven't really noticed any change yet from my thyroid medication. I may be a tiny bit less tired. The Doctor told me it takes 6 - 8 weeks. I'll have blood work done in 6 weeks before I go back and then she will adjust my medication if need be. She also said I should notice my hair not falling out as much and the tiredness should go away. Unfortunately I have gained 3 lbs in the past 3 weeks, but I'm hoping once this gets straightened out I will start to lose again.
As for my sore throat and headache - I have allergies. I have fluid in my ears and one inner ear is inflamed. She gave me something with a decongestant to try and a nasal spray. Post nasal drip is irritating my throat and and the congestion is causing the head ache.
