Can't believe how much I get from this forum in terms of peace of mind, confidence and support.
I'm having a bit of a low to be perfectly honest... I've been on medication for about 3 months now. I started on 50mcg and was on that for 6 weeks... I made a significant clinical progression and my 6 week blood work reflected that with free t3 and free t4 in the middle of the range.
Dr agreed to increase to 75mcg to help my symptoms further especially as I was responding well to Levo and up until a week ago I felt amazing. All my hypo symptoms had gone and I felt normal again... Or relatively. Then last week I started to feel anxious, really jittery, insomnia. This coincided with another 6 week blood work which revealed normal free hormones but a very suppressed TSH. Now this week I feel exhausted, like I'm back at te beginning, the brain fog is back but I also feel anxious and on the verge of passing out. I agreed with dr to start alternating 50 and 75 but I think I have been forgetting and still taking 75 on more than half the days (although it's only been a week)
When I had all my newfound energy back I did use it all, I started exercising loads and have lost weight and was permanently buzzing.. It feels like I'm on a terrible come down.
How do you deal with this out there? I know I'm still in the early stages but I feel like I've regressed massively and it's hard not to let it get me down too much
