I`ve been on 75 mcg of levothyroxine for just over 2 weeks and found some very small and good changes. But the overwhelming tiredness, joint and muscle aches have out weighed them by far. After RAI 2 months ago, I went under-active and my body seems to be telling me that the doses of Levo, just hasn`t kept up with the symptoms. It was only 4 weeks ago that I was taking our dog for short walks- now I can hardly be bothered to get out of bed.
I posted earlier asking if Nutri supplements may help me, and I`m still interested (TY)
However, since that post I managed to speak to the duty GP who has raised my Levo to 100 mcg starting tomorrow.
He began telling me my last results were borderline TSH 6.00 (0.35-3.50) and said my treatment will depend on whether I improve on Levothyroxine- said with the implication that if not `I`m in normal range so I`ll be ok`
Now I am really panicking.....as I cannot live with these debilitating symptoms.
I realize it`s still early days for me and the Levo needs a chance to work - but does my explanation of the Levo not keeping up with my crash into hypo-ness make sense?
Any advice please.
Many thanks, you have all been so helpful.
