On the advice of some very helpful people on here I got a print out of my results. Doc doesn't think I need supplements other than the vit D she gave. The results are within range, but I've read on here that they should be higher than they are for Levothyroxine to work effectively. I'm now on 50 mcg (was diagnosed at the end of Dec). Would anyone be able to advise please?

(Doc said this is ok because my haemoglobin is 135gl (115.00-165.00 ))
I'm barely functioning at the moment, just managing to eat and wash (!), read a little and walk very short distances (50 yards). It's a struggle to do simple tasks. I'd really appreciate any help. (With interpreting the blood test, not my chores ha ha! Though that would be good.....!) I've got a lot of aches, pins and needles, fuzziness and heaviness and don't feel much better since starting the medication.
