Hi. My doc lowered my levothyroxine from 75mcg to 50 mcg 2 weeks ago. A very low dose to say initially a few years ago I was on 200mcg! (Hypothyroid).
The reason for lowering my dose was due to my blood test results as below. All fine other than low tsh.tsh 0.0.1 (0.4 -4.5), ft4 22.1 (9-25), ft3 5.7 (3.5-7.8).
This was 2 weeks ago and I'm getting what feels like swelling at the bottom of my next near the front like below my throat it is uncomfortable but doesn't hurt I'm just concious of it and it is uncomfortable to swallow . It isn't visible either. I also had tummy ache for a week which now has finally subsided.
Has anyone else had this and knows what it means? I'm due my blood test on 1st Sept to check my levels and booked in docs but can't get in until next Monday so almost a week and a half away. Is there anything I can do to bring it down? I started my new job on Monday and am really struggling with concentration and talking on the phone due to it being uncomfortable but im a bit embarrassed to mention it with it being a new job.
Thank you and sorry it is such a long post x
