I've been back to endo last week and though my tsh has come down slightly - 3.6 ( was previously 22 then 19) , he's still aiming to get it suppressed ( thyroid cancer 12 years ago) The best I've felt over those years seemed to be when tsh was almost undetectable.
As a result he's told me to double the thyroxine to 100 ( from 50) and lower the T3 to 10 MCG (split in 2_doses of 5 )
It's now been four days and I'm feeling worse than ever, headaches dizziness and acheing painful body, - generally exhausted and feeling quite desperate .
Is this a normal reaction as I've doubled the T4 ?
I'm wondering ( desperately hoping) that it's a reaction to going up quite a large amount?
Other results were FT4 9.8 and FT3 4.4
He wants to see me and repeat bloods in a month but really don't know how I'm going to carry on til then at this rate.
Any thought/advice appreciated, thankyou.
