I've got an underactive thyroid and it's been all over the place since having a baby 15 mnths ago. I was taking 150mg levothyroxine, 125mg on alternate days and it put me right over with horrible symptoms. Blood test results were TSH 0.07 (range 0.55 - 4.88) and T4 was 20 (range 9-23). Not sure what T3 was as they didn't test it, despite me asking.
Was advised to lower meds to 125mg every day and felt better for about a month, then started feeling really bad again eg heart palpitations, weeing and drinking loads, body aching and insomnia and generally feeling wiped out. Have had blood tests done again (9 weeks after reducing meds) and TSH is now at 0.15 and can't remember the T4, but it was around the middle of the range, but I feel worse than ever. The GP has advised me to drop to 100mg every day, but I'm no longer sure whether I'm feeling bad because my thyroid is over or whether I've reduced the meds too much.
I'm feeling so fed up, all I do is go backwards and forwards to the GP getting blood tests done and meds either upped or lowered. She says it's normal after having a baby, and won't refer me to anyone, but I'm so fed up of feeling ill. I can barely get through the day looking after 2 young children I'm so wiped out all the time. My iron levels are ok at the moment I should add.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
