I was diagnosed with Hashi's in October last year. Now up to 100mcg of levo. Saw doctor today. Latest bloods: My TSH has now dropped to 2.9 (from 17) range 0.4 to 4.5, and my T4 has gone up to 15.8 (from 12), range 11 to 22. Why then, when numbers look like they are going in the right direction, do I feel worse? Am sleeping 10 to 12 hours every day and wake up with awful ache/pain across my shoulders and very heavy arms. Drag myself around every day. No energy. Doctor says I'm fine so no need to increase dose. I feel bad. They won't test antibodies now as they say makes no difference to my treatment so don't know if these have increased. Anyone any ideas/suggestions? Thank you.
