Hi all, just an update really. Just see what your thoughts are. Diagnosed hypo in july and started on 25 mcg levothroxine. I was 50 in June. My tsh was 8.96 and ft4 was 12. I still feel completely rubbish, worse probably with awful aching joints and back, extreme fatigue and brain fog is worse. Anyway this week I had my blood test. They tried Tuesday but my veins are tiny and they kept collapsing. I went back yesterday and they managed it. I took advice from this forum and stopped taking levo last Sunday. When the blood test was rescheduled I didn't restart. Not sure if that was right? Would that make my joints worse, I have exercised this week, Monday I went netball training and Tuesday and Thursday I did a 35 minutes run on my treadmill. I normally try to do a run on Saturday but there is no way today as I feel rubbish. I have review with my gp on Wednesday. Will ask for all results and ranges. I didn't really expect to feel better on such a low dose but am upset to feel worse. I can hardly walk today. Sad face.
