I've been self-medicating since April, substituting 2 grains of Armour for my 100cg of Levo, and in general feeling less dopey. However recently I started to feel very sluggish and have developed Plantar for no apparent reason, so I thought I should ask my doctor for a blood test.
Back came the results, along with the order to drop my dose to 75mcg Levo (they don't seem to have noticed that I'm no longer taking it). The results are:
TSH - 0.13
Free T3 - not tested
Free T4 - 15.4
When I asked why they didn't test for Free T3 I was told it was "specialised" and not normally requested.
Are my sluggish feelings likely to be due to my TSH level? I suspect my doctor is going down this route.
I have an appointment with her next weekand I intend to press for an appointment with an endo. I've been hypo for 15 years and never had any more than fairly rudimentary medical attention.
Any advice on how to tackle my GP much appreciated.
