i forgot to ask what's the highest dose of levothyroxine prescribed for tt patients in england. when i looked at an american website there were women on medications who were taking doses of 200m and sometimes more,is there a danger in taking that much?
during the past three months i've been using painkillers every day, which also worries me.
also how often should there be a test to check levels are all stable?
and lastly, if it turns out my levels are 'normal' when i get bloodtest results on monday,what the hell else can be making me ache so much and feel so stiff.? can anyone please tell me what the symptoms of under dosage can be and can they just 'come on' as mine have.
before my tt,2 years ago i 'd never taken medication, been in hospital or had anything more serious than flu. i'm 67. so it's been an almightly shock all round . also are there any alterative treatments, ie massage, acupuncture etc diet changes that will be benefit me?
