Hope someone can help please, Been on Thyroxine for 20+ years Hashimotos. Just over 2 years ago had total thyroidectomy due to large goitre. Up to this point on 175 mcg after op doc dropped me down to 100 mcg blood test then was free T4 23.6 TSH 0.03 I did not feel well on this and doc increased to 125 tests after this were 15.8 / 0.03, 12.7 / 0.31, 13.7 / 1.41, which was towards end of last year. Last couple months been feeling terrible ache all over terribly hair still coming out and getting breathless. Had another blood test this time 16.8 / 0.19 doctor put my dose up to 150 mcg and a new blood test in 6 weeks. Can anyone tell me if this is right direction or should we be looking at something else I did mention T3 and maybe I was not converting to my GP but went straight over his head. Would I be better off seeing an Endo?
