I went from hyper to hypo. I've had all the symptoms. When I am really low, my voice gets really hoarse, I have a lot of fatigue, (but I also have RA, so I have fatigue regardless...), headaches, moodiness, issues with hair and nails, weight loss (but I think I might have leveled off finally), cholesterol, (thyroid issues tend to have cholesterol problems -- be sure to get that checked!), fatigue, aches and pains, just off the top of my head. Sometimes it is hard for me to tell what symptoms come from which condition. I take 150 mcg of levo.
As for drinking, I don't recall that alcohol is contra-indicated with levo. But it is with one of my RA drugs, so I just be sure that I don't drink within a couple days either way of taking that med. I wouldn't drink a whole lot with it, because alcohol is a depressant, and thyroid messes with your moods.
