I had RAI about two and a half months ago and it certainly worked! My last blood test was 4 weeks ago TSH 6.00 (0.35- 3.50) T4 14 (8-21).
I went to my GP because I kept getting nausea and he and I began wondering if the nausea was because I`d reduced tramadol too quickly. He reassured me that everything else on my bloods looked ok, apart from the last thyroid blood test.
Anyway he sent me for an early blood test - just the TSH this time and he just phoned me to say my TSH has gone to 9.99.!!!
He`s told me to start on 150 mcg levothyroxine tomorrow from my 75 mcg now.
This seems a big increase overnight and I am a bit concerned it`s too much? I`d welcome your opinions please.
I then asked him if the low thyroid may be causing the nausea ?
And he said, yes it could be.
An official answer from a doctor saying hypothyroidism may be causing nausea.....well I never!
