Hi Now back from a wonderful holiday in China. before I went saw Dr G S who said up meds. tried to see my regular GP had to see new GP in practice. She said over medicated would not prescribe and said to reduce to 100mg eltroxin from 125mg whilst away. As I did not want to invalidate my holiday insurance I followed her advice!!!
On my return from China I find a note from the medical practice complete with a script for 50mg eltroxin advising me increase meds per Dr S.
1st July had bloods taken on 100mg eltroxin, 2nd July had a lung function test. Test results say I have lungs of a 51 year old (great as I am 63) so why can I not breathe! Chest Xray was fine.
Saw the'new' GP today asked what the Bloods were told
TSH <0.1 range (0.3 - 5.5)
T3 6.2 range (3.5 - 6.7)
T4 29 range (10 - 19.8) over medicated she says.
So I asked why I still had breathing problems due to test results above. Also asked why I had a note and a script saying increase Eltroxin. Said another Dr in the practice had acted on the letter from the consultant but if I was her sister she would recommend this line of action as never heard of Dr S. Asked if she had heard of Dr J Lowe (still not good enough for her) but agreed to give me a Vit D test.
The 'new' GP says will ask the practice partners if she can send for a 2nd opinion on the NHS. Told her I was back on 125mg as the memory fog was driving me mad. read out all my symptoms and she still says I am over medicated.
AM I OVER MEDICATED OR NOT on 100mg results above taken before that days meds
Dr S wants me to go up to 150 for 4 weeks and then 175 for 6 weeks
