Hi All, I was taking 50mg Levo for 12 months, despite several blood tests that my GP said my T4 and TSH were in normal range, I continued to feel very sick, no sleep, exhausted, dizzy, no memory, aches and pains, sore joints from head to toe, severe headaches, blackouts and dizzyness, crying constantly, feeling suicidal. I sais to my GP if if it was possible I was underdosed, she said no and in no uncertain terms that she would not increase my dose. At that stage, I decided to go off the Levo for 6 months. When I told my GP that I never felt better, she said that I would have to start taking Levo again. I have now been taking 50mg Levo for 3 weeks and I never felt worse. I am exhausted all the time, my memory is wiped out again, I have severe nausea, dizziness, aches and pains all over. The only positive is that am sleeping better. Is there any hope that Levo will work in time if i stay patient. I am at my wits end. I am totally non functioning, I barely leave the house. I am worried that the exhaustion and memory loss will prevent me getting a job. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. As it is a hidden illness, my family dont understand and just think am lazy and a hypochrondriac. Has any one had success not taking the Levo or is there an alternative that is working well for people. At the moment, I feel as if am non existent, I cant partake in society and am totally miserable and alone
