When I was first diagnosed and feeling pretty awful, I used to look for posts from folk who were doing OK. Sadly there weren't that many as most people tend to come here only when they are having problems. So I thought I'd let you know that after 10 months on Levo I'm now feeling pretty damn good.
I'm now on 100mcgs and 75mcgs Levo alternate days and have been for the last eight weeks. For the last five weeks, dare I say it, I FEEL NORMAL. I'd almost forgotten what normal was. At least I think I feel normal!
My blood results on 1st May were (been on 75mcgs for 3 months): TSH 2 (0.5 - 5.5). FT4 16 (10 - 22).
My blood results on 18th June were (been on 75/100 alternate): TSH 2.1 and FT4 16.
This puzzles me slightly because there had been no change in my bloods but for the last five weeks I have felt such an improvement. I started taking selenium, b12 and a multvitamin around the same time so I'm wondering if these have helped also. I've never had any vitamins tested as my doctor doesn't think it necessary. I've never had a T3 test.
I can't say that this is the end of the story for me but I am sure living and enjoying each day and making the most of it!
I'd like to thank everyone on this site for their wonderful help, words of wisdom and support. I would know nothing about thyroid if I hadn't come here. I will of course keep you posted.
