I have been getting advice for my daughter who has recently been diagnosed with hypo.She has been treated on T4 for the last month going from 50mcu to !00.Her TSH was over 100 with high antibodies and a soft goitre-she is 23.,after taking 50 for 2 weeks she went up to 100 and after 3 days felt so much better and the specialist she saw in Bristol said she would pick up. 2 weeks later she has gone right back down with severe muscle pains in hr joints and across her chest and the dreaded exhaustion.She was back at work but has had to stay home again.She has another blood test on monday and an ultrasound.The Specialist said that 100T4 was the replacement dose and she should feel better but i know from this site that people take a lot higher doses,>Should she make sure her T3 is tested ,they have been doing TSH and T4 but i know that GP is not keen usually.I have been trying to explain to her that it takes alot longer than a month to rectify your body when it has crashed so low .I feel cross that the specialist gave her the impression she would be well quite quickly after taking 100. Also do you think she should take supplements yet ??B vts etc Thankyou so much Val
