Is this good advice?

High there. I am not a Doctor so can't diagnose you, but can say I am hypothyroid and still have all the symptoms despite being on thyroxin for 15 years. I am despressed, moody with weight problems etc. It is supposed to help and I know people who claim they feel a burst of energy after taking it. Give it time to work and try not to worry.. Hope this helps.

I would call your endocrine doctor and tell them what sympoms you are having and see if they can get you an earlier appointment. and if they can't get you in earlier keep the appointment you have but also have them put you on the cancel call list. you might get in sooner this way if someone cancels their appointment. one thing i suggest though is when you see the doctor remember to tell them eveything. every symptom you are having even if you think it does not relate to your problem tell them anyway. all information is very benefical. but for the worry i can tell you not to but it's easier said then done. i was just diagnosed with 2 types of thyroid cancer the 2 most common types i don't know what will happen but i don't worry because i give all my cares over to god and let him carry the burden. and find something you like to do to occupy you mind. i hope this helps.
