I am currently on 125mcg of levothyroxine each day. Have had underactive thyroid for over 20 years and I have never felt "normal". I don't go to the Dr often as they don't listen to my symptoms. They just say results are normal and to keep on dose and come back in a year. I went to Dr last week as I am really really struggling and told him my periods had stopped for 5 months, I am always tired and exhausted, everything is an effort and I have no quality of life. I dont look forward to anything and I am just wishing my life away. Brain fog, memory loss, cold, depressed - I am at rock bottom.
Dr said it could be my thyroid and took bloods. My results are:
Free T4 (11-27) 16
TSH (0.3-5.0) 5.4
Dr called me with results and said continue my current dose and come back in 2 months.
I feel awful!! No periods, all these side effects for ages and he wants me to continue another 2 months feeling like this. What do I do? Are my results okay? How do I get an endocrinologist? Would they help me. I am 37 years old. Please help.
