6 weeks ago I had my Levothyroxine raised from 100mcgs to 125mcg. I still feel just the same with my symptoms (totally exhausted and needing daytime naps whenever I can, never feeling refreshed, very bad brain fog, lack of concentration, short tempered, and continuous weight gain).
I had my tests done again yesterday at 9.40am (unfortunately I didn't know I was having Thyroid Function Tests done as I was going to have my sex hormone levels taken, so I didn't fast and I took my Levothyroxine at 7.30am)
My test results are as follows:
22 July 2015 (taking Levothyroxine 100mcg)
Serum free T4 = 17.5 (range 12 - 22)
Serum TSH = 4.04 (range 0.30 - 4.2)
7 September 2015 (taking Levothyroxine 125mcg)
Serum free T4 = 23.1 (range 12- 22)
Serum TSH = 0.73 (range 0.3 - 4.2)
As you can see, in the last 6 weeks since my Levothyroxine has been increased my results have improved dramatically to the point of being slightly over on T4 and perfect TSH, but I still feel just as terrible as I did before the increase. What do I do next as it is affecting my work and my family life feeling like this and I thought that my test results would still come back requiring a further increase. I cant believe that I have got to carry on feeling like this in the long term.
Thank you in advance for any advice.
