I'm currently on 100mcg of Levo and last month my GP decided no further action was required. Luckily when I saw a different GP and said I still had symptoms she ordered a whole raft of tests for me. I'm due to go back for the results tomorrow and I'm feeling a bit of a fraud because in the month since I saw her, things seem to have improved a bit. I never felt really "ill" but my main symptoms: thinning hair, constipation, brain fog, mood swings, weight problems were really getting me down. Now, for the first time in my life I'm going to the loo regularly, my hair (though still really dry and unmanageable) does seem to be getting thicker, my mood swings aren't half as bad and I don't feel as though I'm as "fuzzy" as I was (I had totally lost my confidence when driving, and felt it was only a matter of time before I had an accident). However, I am still having problems with my weight, I get horrible acne spots, have dreadfully dry body skin, have no libido whatsoever and still don't feel 100% so my question is (reading that back I think I've answered my own question!) should I be grateful that things have improved and could possibly continue to improve, or should I push for T3, which might help my weight? Since I have a family history of heart disease I am a bit put off by reports of palpitations with T3-also It seems a bit of a pain working out when to take it's not affected by other things? I take my Levo in the middle of the night which works great for me. Any thoughts anyone?
