Serum TSH level 0.08 MU/L (0.30-4.50) low
Serum free T3 level 6.2 pool/L (3.1-6.8)
TSH target on therapy for primary hypothyroidism = 0.3-4.5 Mu/L
The above are my blood results after using Levothyroxine 100mg for 3 weeks & 125mg for 3 weeks
Since being on tablets I feel terrible. I am sleeping 10 hrs a night and having 2 hr nap in the afternoon. My muscles are aching every day like I have run a marathon. At night my feet are on fire, I wake up with numb hands and arms followed by pins and needles
I barely eat but am not losing weight
Got blood tests back and doctor reducing tablets back to 100mg and says there nothing he can do to help me any further
Told him I feel terrible on tablets and can't concentrate, feel so down and struggling.
Asked if he would trial me on Armour and he went mad saying it is illegal and under no circumstances will he discuss this further & come back for blood test in 2 months time. Asked him to refer me to specialist which he agreed to.
Are my results looking like I need to reduce my dose and if so why do I feel worse than I ever have done.
Any advice you can give me would be very much appreciated. I feel so alone and at a loss
