Please help. Ive been to a dr's appointment today due to feeling tired, having dry skin and brittle nails etc. I was under the impression that he would increase my dosage but he has done the opposite. I was on 50mcg of thyroxine and he has given me a prescription for 25mcg. My recent antibodies test has come back highly positive i'm told. He gave me no figures which i asked for. Im just really confused because he told me i'm over medicated. I have asked for other tests and he told me to wait 6 weeks. He also told me that they are no longer going to test my T4 because its "normal". I feel like banging my head against a wall. I don't seem to be getting any luck when it comes to seeing a dr with any empathy. My latest results are:
tsh - 0.07(0.27-4.20)
serum free t4 - 17.5pmol/L (11.0-25.0)
Im really reluctant to take the smaller dose as i don't think id cope caring to care for two children and being even more exhausted. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
