I was in A& E and I finally had my Mirena Coil removed, after 4 weeks of constant bleeding. I bleed so heavy after this was removed that I was starting to get concerned, but thankfully after 6 days it has stopped.
I had a blood test in A&E and this was passed onto my Thyroid Specialist and she called me at home last night (such a surprise) to say that my TSH level was 3.1 and needed to be lowered. She then advised I need to increase my Levothyroxine from 50mg to 75mg, until I see her in April. I have only been on this drug now for about 5 months now, slowly increasing the dose from 25mg onwards. She also confirmed that I do have Hashimoto and I will have this for the rest of my life.
My concern at the moment is getting my energy back and the depression that seems to hit me. Its been so bad that I started to get concerned, but it appears to be lifting now. It seems to come in waves.
Has anyone else experienced this when they first was diagnosed ?
Does anyone know what the effect of having a high TSH will do and what the signs are if it increases, apart from the fact I will want to sleep more. I don't fully understand as this is a bit new to me
