So I was diagnosed, rather abruptly out of the blue, early last Sept when a run-of-the-mill thyroid blood test came back with TSH 13.02 and free T4 9.1. My GP started me on Levothyroxine 50mcg daily. Retested 8 weeks later, TSH 5.69 and free T4 15.6, so thyroxine was increased to 75mcg. Bloods back at end of Dec were TSH 1.52. Doctor seems happy with this...I'm feeling rubbish!
Bloods since have been checked March TSH 1.65 and again June TSH 1.44. All these bloods were taken mid morning generally, when I was taking Levo about 30mins before breakfast when I didn't know any better.
my difficulties are that I've little knowledge or understanding of my condition, but my GP herself is hypothyroid and I worry she will dismiss my concerns cause Levo works fine for her. Daft I know.
Looking back, some hormones were checked and a diagnosis of PCOS was given at same time as hypothyroid but my vitamin levels have never been checked. My heart races, despite trying to stick to one brand, changing dosing from before breakfast to bedtime. I'm becoming more and more tired again, and I'm feeling nauseous and shaky between meals. Should I be asking for other tests? And why do we not seem concerned about why I'm hypo all of a sudden? Asked GP why and she said it just happens...
