I had a total thyroidectomy July 2013. We have been struggling to get levothyroxine (Eltroxin) levels normalised for the last year. My current dose is alternate days of 125 & 100 mcg Eltroxin. My last TSH result was normal - 1.90. I don't have T4/T3 results - they weren't tested for. This blood test was taken 2 weeks ago. I had a previous blood test 5 weeks previous to that with the following results:
Total T3: 1.44
It seems to be that this does is pretty stable according to TSH but unfortunately I do not feel well. I am suffering from muscle pains all over my body as well as a "wired" feeling. I am very sensitive to Eltroxin so any time I went up a dose I would initially get the "wired" feeling for a week or two until my body got used to the dose.But at the moment it seems that I am constantly getting this feeling. I have also got some chest pains around the heart which is scary enough. It seems to be that I am getting hyperthyroid symptoms even though my levels are ok? I can also have nausea and diarrhea occasionally.
If I reduce my dose for a week or so the symptoms seem to alleviate although I start to get fatigued - I wonder am I going hypo at this stage? I was wondering could it be an adrenal issue:
Has anybody experienced this before? Any help greatly appreciated.
