Been increasing Levo from 50micro grams to 125 since last March. Since taking Levo I have felt worse than prior to taking the tablets. Joint aches, Heartburn and terrible itching. Went Hypo on last increase to 125.
Have decided to stop taking tablets to see if I am physically better off
8th March 13 - 50mg
TSH 21 (0.3-4.5)
T4 9 (9-23)
Vitamin D OK getting copy of results
Ferritin 181 (22 -322)
8th July 13 75mg
4th Oct 13 100mg
25th Nov 13 125 mg
I have an appointment on Wed to GP and will ask for referral to private endo (got names from Louise).
I guess I am one of numerous people who cannot tolerate Levo.
