Had thyroidectomy in dec '12. Have been hypo ever since! Finally got labs in range 2 weeks ago on 100 mcg thyroxine. Still very bad symptoms such as dizziness, cold,pins and needles,weakness,sore and weak muscles, out of control emotions. Relying totally on family for everything at the moment. Labs as follows: TSH 2.1(.5-4.5), t4 18(10-20),t3 4.4(3.5-6). Have put dose up to 110mcg (2 weeks ago) and no relief yet. Do I just need to give this more time now that I have just got back in range after so long of being hypo? How long have people waited to see symptoms improve once they hit the right dose. So interested to hear some experiences. I am one desperate Aussie at the moment!
