2011 i had a blood test to see what was causing a bad skin breakout of boils (hidradenitis) and my thyroid came back high but dr wasnt concerned, asked for another blood test couple of weeks ago due to massive weight gain, tired, irratable, lack of energy ect
results came back 10.1 and i needed to see a dr.......was told i have hypothyroidism and was prescribed 25mcg levothyroxine, after 5 days my feet started swelling bad and i wasnt sure if it was the meds or heat so yesterday (day 9) i called dr for advice, i spoke to a differant dr as the one dealing with me is on holiday and was told to stop the levothyroxine as my thyroid was fine and the swelling was more than likely due to the heat wave we are having at the moment,
now im really confused i dont understand the 10.1 so am i hypo or not? should i have been given medication? should it have been stopped?
