Diagnosed hypo in 2006/7 and put on 100mcgm of Levo. Everything fine apart from a couple of blips. Felt thyroidy earlier this year and saw endo who put me on 10mcgm T3 and 75mcgms T4. All was well until last 3 weeks when hair started to fall out big style. Saw GP, told me to have blood test done then stop T3 and go back to 100 Levo only. Blood test results:-
TSH <0.03 (0.27-4.2 mU/L)
Free Thyroxine 15 (12-22 pmol/L)
Free T3 3.73 (3.1-6.8 pmol/L)
Saw another Dr today as hair just breaking off at scalp, sore scalp and red blisters which I've had before. He said he went off TSH (aargh) and that my TSH was too high. I told him I'd always had a suppressed thyroid result and that's what the endo in England had said I should be. He has asked me to reduce to 50mcgs of Levo. If I don't feel better to put it up to 75 and to have a blood test in 6 weeks. I told him that I was not at all happy but I would try it and I defo would find him and come back if I felt worse! I feel so ill but like most on here I have lots of other conditions. Sorry to rattle on but I'm so ill, fed up andfrustrated I just want to go to bed and stay there! Any advice gratefully received.
