I'm new to this but am finding it SO useful so thank you. I've been on Levo since 2005 but am starting to get the hypo symptoms again. This seems to happen quite regularly and on 3 occasions have lead to real bad bouts of depression. I've recognised the signs now - sever fatigue,aching joints, weight gain, fuzzy head, clumsiness,carpul tunnel,nightmares etc etc. I've seen my gp about NDT (which he had never heard of?!?!) but its not 'recommended' for prescription in Leics. He was very helpful and said he just wants me to get better so checked it out with the pharmacy manager and that was what he was told.
I asked for a blood test for T3 and its not on the list of blood tests that he can request, hence the referal to the endo. He has arranged for blood tests for feratin and vit b and recommends not increasing my Levo until the results are back.
I currently take 125 levo a hour before breakfast. My last result was 1.1 tsh but they did not have t4 (march 2014). August 2013 tsh 0.05 and t4 23. I am scared that I'm going to dip mentally again as the last time was so frightening. Any recommendations will be gratefully received. Many thanks.
