I have fluctuating TSH levels over the last two years,end of range being 4.2.I was once over this and was sent to endo,told nothing wrong with thyroid despite also having a multinodular goitre and TPO antibodies.I was discharged being told to check my levels annually.The last two years have had pressure throat,hoarseness,trouble with swallowing,eyelids swelling,losing hair,anaemia and battles with fatigue.
The past six months things got so much worse bouts of fatigue,carpal tunnel syndrome,feeling cold a lot,feeling dizzy and for me worst of all a weight gain of almost 2 1/2 stone in about three months.I feel so swollen and like the michelin woman.
I went back and got my bloods done.TSH now 6.My GP was very sympathetic and has prescribed me eltroxin 50mcg.
Has anyone had sucess with this,will things improve?.
I'm pleased to be getting some help at last but apprehensive too as getting to the right levels eems very daunting.
Any tips for this newbie??.Thanks.
