Hello! I've recently been diagnosed with an under active thyroid (results in photo below). This was found as part of a blood test prior to an operation - a laparoscopy for endometriosis. I'd had no other obvious symptoms of under active to date. I'm lucky enough to have BUPA at work so I've been seeing a consultant in London who has put me on 100mcg of thyroxine per day. He was keen, as was I, to get the issue sorted ASAP as we are due to start IVF early in 2015.
I've been taking the drugs for nearly a month now and I'm starting to feel a little odd (can't describe it in any other way). I'm constipated, and although I'm sleeping I don't feel I'm getting the deep sleep that I used to. I've also lot my appetite and around 3kgs. Now these could be due to other things, I've got a lot on my plate at the moment and last week I had a second laparoscopy.
I'm seeing my consultant on the 15 Jan following a second blood test but am thinking maybe my dose is far too high? Any thoughts?
