Thank Goodness I`m seeing my GP tomorrow as my blood pressure is through the roof. I know he`ll deal with that but he`s the GP who raised my levo recently from 75 to 150 mcg. Since then I felt ok to begin with but my joints and muscles having been hurting very badly and my mood is really low. And I`m so tired I barely get out of bed.
I`m not sure if he over medicated me or not?
I `ve read that hypo and hyper can both cause high BP - but also read that the depression is hypo related.
I`ve dropped my levo today to 125 just in case and I`ll do the same tomorrow.
I`ve also got my endo follow up appointment from RAI on Wednesday - I had RAI 3 months ago and my latest TSH showed 9.99 (0.35-3.50) so its looking like it worked. So for ths appointment I had a blood test on Thursday and hoping the results are through when I see my GP tomorrow - at least then I ought to know which way I`m heading hyper or hypo?
I`ve been on the 150 mcg dose about 18 days now, so I`m not sure if I`ve given it a chance to work. But I`m despairing now that I`ll never get well again!!
Please can someone advise me.
