I started on 75ml thyroxine 2 days ago it says to take in a morning 30 mins before for food or caffeine ect but I work nights sometimes what should I do about taking them then ?.
Iv had these not well feelings for 3 years been going to gp regularly moaning about tiredNess weight gain that my body aches that I fall straight to sleep cos I'm so tired but don't stay asleep when I wake up I feel like iv not had any sleep I feel like I'm walking about with lead boots on .
Any way they sent me for blood test on the very 1st appointment and they recalled me to do again as my TSH was at 11.4 (0.4-4.5 range ).
The second blood test was 7.9 same range which the doc said that was ok as my t4 was normal .
Any way iv been having regular blood tests TSH always coming back out of range and vit d low now too so put me on vit d tablets after Xmas my TSH was at 9.9 and probably stick of seeing me finally said that they would get me a referal to the hospital the hospital contacted the docs after the referal went through and told them to start me in thyroxine and they sent me an appointment for April .
How long before I feel 37 again instead of 137 !doc said it should nt take long and some 1 said 6 month.
Sorry for the essay !.
