53-year-old female, diagnosed with hypothyroidism/Hashimoto in May.
Started on Levothyroxine 50, which was upped to 75 in June, as was still struggling with tiredness. Asked doc for iron as well as my Ferritin level was very low.
She prescribed me Ferrous Fumarate and upped my Levothyroxine to 100.
Also at this point I went on a gluten-free diet, and have been taking brazil nuts daily for Selenium.
Now feel I am hyper, lots of energy now but having extreme sweating and flushing day and night, feel like I'm in a sauna and can't sleep because of it. Having to get up to go to the toilet during the night much more than before.
Noticing hair loss for the first time, since the increase to 100.
Took only 75 today and sweating is not so bad. Going for bloods on Wednesday, and unsure what's best - to continue on 100 or drop to 75.
