So 5 weeks into my 2nd increase - now on 100mcg a day, had the initial "levo rush" and felt fab, then hit a low and felt rubbish and now Im just so confused again, tired (not to the extremes of needing a nap every day just can't get going) and want to cry all the time.
Doc did some other bloods and I got the message back that "everything was OK patient normal" well, I just phoned and got my actual B12 results as she had been worried about that and I think it's low but Im not sure! It's 228 with a reference range of 180 - 2000 (the receptionist definitely said two zero zero zero).
Im back on the 24th for repeat bloods (8 weeks after increase) and docs on the 26th to see what's what and Im trying to get my head round where we go from here.
So I levels were :
50mcg daily : T4 13 (9-21) and TSH 4.4 (0.2-4.5)
75mcg daily : T4 15 (9-21) and TSH 3.0 (0.2-45)
Im now on 100mcg daily so presuming the levels come down by the same amounts again (and the GP wasn't really looking at putting me on more than 100mcg anyway) that would take the ranges down to roughly T4 17 (she was aiming for about 18 so that would be about right) but TSH only to 1.5 so still a bit high as she was aiming for about 0.4.
So - Im thinking I need a B12 supplement or something at the very least and I can't quite figure out if the figures being out of sync a bit (as in not both being at optimal at the same time) means I should be pushing for T3?
Im so confused and brain fade is really really bad - could not remember the word for plates the other day and burst into tears and I repeatedly called the window cleaner the dish washer man which my hubby and son thought was hilarious ....... until I burst into tears! Have to write EVERYTHING down and still forget things constantly.
Im so confused and trying to get my head round it - this latest increase up to 100mcg hasn't really done anything - if anything, it's made my brain fade worse.
Can anyone help me get my head straight (tall order I know!)
