As suggested I have obtained my last two TFT results. After the blood test taken on 21 July, my GP stopped my medications of 40 mgs Carbimazole and 75 micrograms Levythyroxine on 7th August although I had gone to see her to tell her that I thought I needed my medications adjusting as I was feeling extremely cold all the time when everyone else was warm, and yet couldn't cope with the heating on because I couldn't breath properly, was feeling exhausted needing naps through the day and had anxiety (explained in my first post on Thyroid UK)
21 July 2015
Serum Free T4 level (XaERr) 13.4 pmol/L (7.5 - 21.1)
Serum TSH level (XaELV) 5.15 mii/L (0.34 - 5.6)
The next blood test was taken on 27th August, 20 days after being taken off the meds BUT I had had all of my initial symptoms return with a vengeance after only approx. 4 days (diagnosed June/July 2013) that I put myself back on 40 mgs Carbimazole before I even went back to the GP because my heart rate, breathlessness, anxiety, heat intolerance and phobias were so scary.
27 August 2015
Serum Free T4 level (XaERr) Above Range (47.9 pmol/L (7.5 - 21.1)
Above High reference limit
Serum TSH level (XaELV) Below Range (0.07 mii/L (0.34 - 5.6)
Below Low reference limit
I have another blood test tomorrow and with a full blood count as I currently have an infection (flu type).
I also have my referral back to the Endo specialist for 10th November.
I have also reduced the Carbimazole (myself) from 40 to 20 mgs simply because I feel so much better than I did in August/early September AND because I have read so many times that it isn't a safe medication to be taking for too long on a high dose ?
I would be grateful for any help with these results.
