Hello again all,
I am into my 4th week on 75 mg Levothyroxine and am so disappointed that apart from no longer suffering an excruciating tightening of the chest, I don't feel any different. I am still struggling to walk any distance without feeling I need to lie down...If I stand for more than 5 minutes, I have to go and lie down. I also now have a lovely rubber ring around my middle that is getting bigger! (6 months ago, my stomach was flat and even concave). If I eat anything I can't move afterwards... sitting in the bath has become impossible as I can't seem to bend or flex my body without huge discomfort.
I am terrified about having to do battle with my GP in two weeks time to either increase my levothyroxine or request a free T3 (I honestly don't know what this is actually! but just assuming I may need this based on all the posts I have read). My attention span is so poor at the moment that I cannot take much in.
My biggest problem however is trying to interpret all the figures/norms/ranges that are talked about... I am so confused. I wondered if anyone had a simple idiots guide...something like a table.. or maybe produce one so that I and others could better understand the hormone numbers better?
Thanks to all of you.
