Customer Question

I had a thyroidectomy at the end of January this year. My Levothyroxine dose is 100mcg per day. 5 days ago I forgot to take the tablet, not realising this until the next day when I took the tablet as usual and have continued to do so. 3 days ago I experienced the following symptoms which subsided yesterday and the day before but are not doing so today: trembling/shaking, sweating, flushing then feeling cold, nausea but not being sick, weakness, dizzy head, feeling faint. My temperature is varying between 35.4 and 35.7 C. Should I seek urgent medical attention? The NHS 111 service did not address my thyroid issue.
