Hi I'm 28 and was diagnosed in Feb 2013 after feeling tired all the time. My TSH was 33 then after taking 50mg of levo it soon went down to about 3 then went to 1. My hair is falling out so much at the minute so I went and had my bloods tested again and my TSH is now 5.6 which is a rise. Last time I went back when it was 1 my hair was still falling out so I was told to take 50mg but an extra 25mg every other day, I did but stopped as it made me feel sick. However I am now self prescribing and taking 75mg ever day as my hair is really getting me down. I asked to get referred to a specilaist but was told my TSH is in a normal range and they wouldn't be able to do anything else. Other than my hair I don't feel too bad, i'm less tired, i'm a healthy slim weight and i'm not depressed but my hair is so think than it was before. Is this just something I need to learn to live with? I'm 28 and this is only going to get worse I feel.
