Hello friends ...
Here is a summary of my treatment since I first diagnosed:
You might notice that TSH was way below range even though my FT4 and FT3 are normal and below mid-range. My doctor suggested to give my Levothyroxine trial and see if my symptoms disappear (wake up 4AM, slow heart rate, short breath, low energy and fatigue ..) .
My TSH kept fluctuating to go over range after started 50mcg of Levo! Then went below range again.
My dose reached 150 mcg now. I felt better every time I increase the dose but the improvement doesn't last long. Now, feel no effect of the 150mcg!
Tonight, I will go to see my doctor and do blood work after 4 weeks on 150mcg. I started low dose 4 months ago and now on 150mcg and still my symptoms exist almost like I'm not taking anything!
I will do B12 to see if there is any improvements.
I'm thinking to ask for rT3, iron and ferritin in addition to TSH T3 T4. What else should I consider?
I'm so tired and embarrassed here in my work! no body understands what I'm going through! I go to work sleeping 4 hours every day!
