Have been taking 150mg of levothyroxine for a few months now (though I forgot I should only be taking 125 now which changed in March but was my 50s out of habit).
My symptoms are as follows:
extreme intolerance to the heat (I feel so hot and agitated in the weather). I really hate it when it's sunny and hot (this is unlike me, normally I love the sun)
really exhausted all the time, struggle to get out of bed in the morning, more energy towards the evening
huge appetite and cravings for sugar and starchy foods (once I start eating bread I cannot stop)
Loose bowels (Need to go not long after I eat with urgency, runny stools etc.)
I have just had a recent blood test. I didn't take levo in the morning and it shows my T3 is 5.7 and T4 is 20. These are both within the normal range but at the upper end... Is it possible I feel better at slightly lower levels of Free Thyroid hormones and should reduce my medication? Blood test results state 'no further action', but wondering if I should take matters into my own hands and find a balance of where I feel best.
Wonder if I should reduce to 125 to begin with and see how I go on my current prescribed dose)
