I just saw my GP - my thyroid test was in the normal range, and another thyroid-related test came back quite low (TSH?) so the doctor advised I should stick with my reduced dosage of 125 (I was previously taking 150 and felt fine) rather than alternating between 125/150 every other day as I'd hoped she would say.
I'm still suffering with balance/dizzy issues, the doctor was sure this isn't thyroid related, thinks I may have had a virus, and has prescribed stemetil.
As I said in my thread yesterday, I've already purchased thryroxine on line, as a precaution, and so if I wish to increase my own dosage slightly, then I can.
However - I'm torn between giving the doctor the benefit of the doubt (she's got a medical degree and I have 't) and just sticking with 125 for another few weeks, just to see if she's right about the virus, and that 125 might actually be ok for me? Because if I go straight to my 'own' dosage, alternating between 125/150, I suppose I'll never know if she was right or not?
But it's reassuring knowing I've got a stash of thyroxine tucked away at home, just in case I don't improve. Any thoughts?
