In 2010, May to September, I suffered from viral thyroiditis. I was 55 years old. My aging suddenly got accelerated. I am told that there is no medicine or vaccine on viral thyroiditis.

With thyroid disorder sometimes my voice is less audible, often there is over production of salvia or sometimes mouth dry, and there are sprinkles of spit when talking, and not good moisture in the mouth.

I have no thyroid gland and I believe that my new doctor has got me on too low a dosage of levothyroxine. Since losing my gland in 1991, I have been on as high a dosage as .175 levothyroxine, but now I am on .50 and I feel cold, tired, and depressed.

My thyroid levels run around 1.04 and I take 75 mg medicine every morning. I had them checked today and they were 6.064 and the doctor has increased my medicine to 1 and 1/2, two times a week. My heart and head are being affected.
