So I was diagnosed back in December with the following bloods
TSH 1.4 (0.3-5)
Free T3 2.1 (3.1-6.8)
Free T4 10.7 (12-22)
I was put onto 50mcg Levo and although it took a few weeks my clinical progression was rapid and I definitely responded well. By the time I had my 6 week blood test a lot of the symptoms had disappeared (constipation and brain fog especially)
My 6 week blood test results were as follows:
TSH 0.97 (0.3-5)
Free T3 5 (3.1-6.8)
Free T4 16.5 (12-22)
Dr and I agreed there was still room for improvement and he wanted me to feel as good as I could possibly feel and so increased my dose to 75mcg. Despite taking a week to adapt to this new dose, for the past 4 or 5 weeks I have felt amazing- like the world is a different place, I have so much energy, I'm losing weight, I can concentrate for hours. But all of a sudden in the last week I have definitely started to feel like it's too much. I have insomnia and I'm anxious and feel on edge and a bit shaky.
Luckily it coincided with another 6 week blood test and here are te results from this
TSH 0.03 (0.6-5)
Free T3 4.6 (3.1-6.8)
I went to see another GP yesterday to talk about my symptoms and she has recommended that I now take alternate 50 and 75 but I'm seeing my proper GP tomorrow. Does anyone have any advice? I still feel very jittery and on edge today (for the last 2 days I have only taken 50mcg). I don't know my free T4 yet, but with a T3 not higher than last time my symptoms can't be due to having too much actual thyroid hormone and is it just a side effect of an incredibly suppressed TSH?
Any advice would be great.
