Saw Dr S in Birmingham in July he suggested increasing thyroxine from 100 to 150 to 175 over a few weeks which I did. Never felt better, sleeping well, hair not falling out, no stiffness, no constipation, cholesterol came down etc etc.
Managed to get more Thyroxine from my surgery without to mush trouble. Nearly fell through the floor when my GP telephoned me after some blood tests, never called me in 25 years. He said....."this is not the way to do it". Having been denied good health for 13years having listened to him. I said my cholesterol has gone right down and I've never felt better. These are the recent results: T4. 24.8. (9.0 - 19.0) TSH. 0.01. (0.35-4.94). T3. 6.19.
I agreed to reduce my thyroxine to 150 and it's now the ninth week...I'm back to not sleeping well at all, occasional all day headaches. The question is should I go back to 175 micrograms or should I continue with the 150 and take the 25 every other day. Is my TSH maybe too low, maybe some very knowledgable person can advise me...many thanks.
