Hi, please can someone help me, I am at a bit of a loss on what to do next. In April, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I was put on 50mcg levothyroxine, and later it was increased to 100mcg, now they are saying that I am at the right level and to stay on that dose. My test results are: Free T4 18.9 pmo/l 12 - 22, TSH 0.83 mIU/L 03 - 5.0. If I am on the correct dose, why do I feel worse on 100mcg? I am constantly tired, my head is a fog and I can't concentrate, my hair is falling out, and I have eczema that won't clear up. I can sleep for ten hours and still wake up and feel like I haven't slept at all. I have forced my doctor to give me some further blood tests, I am a little low on vit D, so I am taking vitamins for that. The latest test I had was a full check on my blood, to check on inflamation, and those have come back normal.
I am at a loss as to what to ask for next, my Dr just keeps wanting to get me back on sertraline, but I worry that will mask the real issue, I am anxious because I am tired and not able to think clearly, if the tiredness is resolved then everything else I hope, will go back to how it should be, allowing me to be me again.
Does anyone have any advise, how do I get referred to a specialist? BEcause I keep getting stonewalled when I suggest that :0(
