Hi there. First post on here ..just need some help!
Had under active thyroid for ten years,on 150mcg of thyroxine. Always told bloods are 'normal'.
Been feeling very poorly for about ten months. Constantly tired, dry skin, constipated and more severely feeling very depressed. Just kept getting fobbed off by gp so gave up going, moved house recently and changed GPS. Went to see new go and was prescribed flueoxetine for depression. Took for three days but made me so sick I had to stop. Went back to gp and he ordered bloods to be done. Got a call last night to say T4 is10.5 normal range is 7-17
Tsh is 43 normal range is 0,2-4.5
He's increased dose of levothyroxine to 200mcg daily and said I should feel better in a few weeks. As I don't understand what these results actually mean I'm just worried the tsh looks incredibly high.
I feel really I'll but I am also worried I'm over reacting???
Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks.
