I've been taking 100mcg thyroxine, had occasions of having heart palps and a general feeling of not being 100%.
My hair has been falling out a lot, it also started to feel quite coarse -something I noticed prior to being diagnosed as hypothyroid. I was also aware over the past week with the sun shining more, that I'm overly sensitive to bright lights
I had my bloods taken last week, I remembered to avoid taking my thyroxine before the test. My GP said my TSH was low 0.17 and T4 was high at 22.3.
She's reduced my meds alternating between 100mcg and 75mcg.
I know it will take a few weeks to see an improvement, but should I have a blood test in 2 months and generally how often should I have them?
Also, I experienced hair loss, lethargy pre diagnosis, does anyone have these symptoms along with light sensitivity when over medicated?
