I went to my GP just over 3 weeks ago with extreme fatigue & various other symptoms, my GP arranged a blood test to check my thyroid as I've recently had a baby & apparentley thyroid problems are quite common after pregnancy. I had a phone call from my GP the day after having the blood tests as the results were 'very impressive'!?
TSH more than 100
T4 less than 2
She quickly explained that this was why I'd been feeling so ill, put me on Levo 100mg & told me to come back in 8 weeks for a blood test. I was too exhausted to ask any questions & just walked out with my prescription!
I've been taking Levo for 14 days now & although symptoms haven't got worse I can't say they've got better either! How long should it take before I start feeling a bit better? Or can I ask my GP to increase the dosage before the 8 week blood test?
Every day is such a nightmare with a 2 year old & 5 month old to look after when feeling like a zombie!!
Any advice gratefully received!
