Had hypothyroidism for some 8 years, had all the ususal issues you all complain about and changed doctors twice , although known each has ever referred me. on levothyroxine for only 2-3 years and better but not brilliant. Tsh level finally down to 2.38mU/L in June but now suddenly shot up to 8.49. Never seems to test my T3 or T4. His explaination was pituatary was not recognising amount of thyroxine in blood but this wasn't a problem as long as I felt fine. Have elevated liver function issue suddenly too and so has asked me to stop drinking for 3 months too. Tinnitus really bad at the moment, having trouble sleeping some nights and just in the last week had really stiff neck and shoulders too. help I am really stuck, would love to know what I should do.
