I was diagnosed with underactive thyroid then Hashimotos in Oct/Nov 2014.
First results were TSH of 6.54 (0-5).
Free T4 was 11 (9-22)
After 6 weeks of 25mcg Levothyroxine the results were..
TSH - 2.93 (0.35-5.00) - 6 weeks ago it was 6.54
Free T4 - 13.2 (9-22) - 6 weeks ago it was 11.1
Free T3 - 3.9 (2.60-5.70) - Wasn't tested originally
And now after increasing to 75mcg they have come back as...
TSH 0.62 (0-5)
T4 14.8 (9-22)
Free T3 5.1 (2.60-5.70)
I've got overwhelming fatigue mainly because I had Meningitis last July and I'm recovering slowly so hard to measure symptoms, but since upping the dosage to 75mcg (the latest results) I've been struggling to get to sleep, been getting hot even with the heating off, and really struggling to fall asleep which is not a problem I've had before.
Do my results look 'right' as in, do you think I should stick at my dosage, or is it possible I'm now overmedicated. I have Hashimotos (TPO antibodies 167) so I know that can swing a bit.
My doctor is just happy that everything is in range.
Any thoughts would be welcome - it's hard to know what optimal dosage is because I feel rubbish anyway!
