Since my GP reduced my dose of thyroxine, only a tiny bit, I have developed a host of new weird symptoms. I'm getting skin rashes, mostly under armpits and breasts. I also swell up by four of five pounds of added weight, I'm guessing water weight, within an hour or two of getting up. I have taken measurements and thighs, breasts, waist, hips all about two to three inches bigger. I have no love handles when I get up but I do after about two hours. I can't tolerate lots of foods like onions, wheat, milk, caffeine. GP is sending me for an abdominal ultrasound. My rings fall off my fingers then they can't be removed cos have swollen up. I am constipated and have a lot of gas. Sorry! GP has insisted I wait six weeks before another blood test. I have 10 more days to go. Have made up my mind to insist on a specialist referral to someone on a list provided by Thyroid Uk, but just want your thoughts please. My last test was TSH 0.44, range 0.55 to 4.78, and T4 was 22.2. I am on 125 mcg of levo for six days and 100mcg for one day. Have also been prescribed buscopan for suspected Irritable Bowel Syndrome, but find I usually don't need to take it if I avoid my trigger foods. Which are growing in number. I have Hashi's but GP doesn't test my antibodies anymore! They were 1000.
Sorry, last thing, honestly, I can hear a crunching sound in my neck on one side. Your thoughts please. Thank you
