Hi all, I was diagnosed with hashimotos about ten years ago but never needed treated for it.
Over the last few months have been feeling pretty under the weather and thought I had a bug - cold, tired, miserable etc.. Went to docs about a month ago who did some blood tests. Got called back the next day as turns out my t4 was 1 and tsh 267!!! Was referred and
went to see consultant yest who was pretty shocked/impressed I've been coping with such crazy levels!!
I've started on Levothyroxine and think they're going to wean me on to a high dose (only on 50 at the mo). Feeling better already (and started feeling better from day one of taking them..) not 100% yet but it's early days. So much worrying stuff to read on forums so wanted to say it's not all bad and things can improve pretty quickly when you start taking medication x
