I have suffered from Hashimoto's for over 25 years and have been treated all that time with Levothyroxine beginning with 25micrograms and rising to 200 at certain times.
Last year I was on 175 Levothyroxine as I had been for a few years but I have never felt well and began to feel worse. My most debilitating symptom (of the many I suffer) is feeling like I am in a permanent stupor - a feeling of not being fully present and also dizzy and severe fatigue mainly on waking and through the morning.
I was referred to an endo last April and he increased my dose to 200 microgram Levo which I tried for a week or two but was feeling worse so I reverted to my usual dose of 175 and many days I took less than normal.
So on returning to the endo recently I was shocked that my TSH had fallen dramatically to 0.05 whilst my free T4 was high in range and my free T3 was over the range.
The endo advised that I was overmedicated and asked me to reduce my Levo to 125 and add in 20 of T2 (split morning and night).
I have been on this dose for a week but feel just the same. My 'logic' can't understand why if my free T3 is high and out of range I have been prescribed T3.
I am unsure what to do just now and would appreciate any wisdom you can offer please.
