hi, I was wondering if someone could help me. I have had hypothyroidism for over 17 years and have been on Levothyroxine. Most recent dose was 75Mcg, which was increased to 125 mcg when I found out I was pregnant (at approx 7 weeks). My previous TSH readsing was 4.87 (at 75 msc) and is now 1.49 (at 125 mcg). T3 has not been tested. Free t4 currently at 15.5.
I have been experiencing symptoms of pre-natal depression (no interest in the baby, constantly crying, feeling very low, no interest in anything I used to enjoy previously; insomnia; extreme exhaustion - even in the 2nd Trimester, panic attacks and a feeling of not being able to cope with anything. It doesn't help that the NHS doctor I've seen told me to basically suck it up and I would get better. I've been reading a little about thyroid conditions and I'm wondering if there is anyone who might know something about this and if there is a possible link? Also, if there are any good private doctors you could recommend that I see as soon as possible, as I worry about the harm I'm causing to my baby with this condition and the thryroid hormone imbalances).
