Hi all and thanks in advance I'm 18 and was diagnosed with hypothyroidism at 14. The medication (varying between 100 and 175mg over the years) has been good and working well until the past few months where I've been getting more tired, gaining weight (about a stone in 6 months) , weaker, dry skin etc but every time I get a blood test and see the doctor, they insist my levels are increasing and I'm being over-treated so they lower my dosage. Obviously this is opposite to how I'm feeling! Ha ha! What should I do about it? Could this be symptoms of something else? It's been impacting my A Level work and I really want to do well and be healthy! Ha ha! Thanks again!
