Going by my symptoms and a recent blood test, I`ve gone underactive after RAI. I`d been prescribed 50 mcg levothyroxine last week but knew I needed more. So this morning I increased it to 75 mcg. Within 2 hours I was at last feeling more like my old self and began doing a bit of housework, which is unheard of lately. After another hour, I`d had enough and all the old hypo symptoms returned.
Anyway my thyroid nurse was due to phone me this afternoon, and I was rehearsing all day on what to say to get my levo increased.
She called and had shown my blood test to a consultant who suggested I raise to 75 mcg ( so the rehearsing was for nothing :))
I confessed that I`d raised my dose and asked if it would work so quickly and she said no! So I`ve come to ask you all- the people who really know
