Just had an appointment with my Dr. I was diagnosised with hypothyroidism a few years ago and the doseage has slowly been increasing. My t4 levels have gone from 10 last year to 8.5 in feb and may this year. My Tsh has gone from 7 last year to 5 in feb and back up to 7.5 in May.
I have finally got the doctor to increase to a 100 mg dose as I'm symptomatic. Exhausted, brain fogged, difficult recovering after exercise, skin is dry etc etc.
The doctor kept saying my T4 is within range but that surely doesn't prove a lot if I'm symptomatic??
She tried to explain that my T4 level isn't whats making me feel rubbish it's the raised TSH level and that is what's causing the problem? Left feeling a tad confused.
Any help in explaining that please?
She said she worried about increasing my dose too much as then I could become hyper and full of energy. I was like... And the problem with that would be???!!!!!!
