Having not feeling too well lately (tired, fuzzy headed, stomach issues) I requested a blood test. Everything came back as normal but TSH had risen since my last blood test in November.
My results since Nov 2012 have been:
11/12 T4 15.4
2/13 T4 13.5
11/13 TSH 0.05
1/14 T4 15.1
7/14 TSH 2.35
10/14 TSH 2.22
2/15 TSH 3.17
I'm diagnosed Hashimotos, & I was taking 125 levothyroxine which was reduced to 100 some time ago. Unfortunately I can't remember when exactly....would that have been after 2/13 blood test or 11/13?
Judging by my TSH scores I can see my level fluctuates but generally within the so called 'normal' range. I would like to understand what causes the fluctuations & what they could be a reaction to? I had felt quite well towards the end of the year & up till a few weeks back but something seems to have happened to change that. Could it be the rise in my TSH? Would I benefit from returning to my higher dose of 125 or a reduction in dose? Is it the case that the higher the TSH, the more thyroxine I need or visa versa?
