I had a total thyroidectomy 12 years ago for Graves Disease. Although it took a long time to settle I've been relatively stable on 150mcg of Levothyroxine. My thyroid levels were checked at the beginning of the year and I was advised to reduce the dose by 25 mcg and be retested in 2 months , did this and advised to drop another 25 mcg. I wasn't keen and have questioned why.
I'm going to discuss this with my go, however after calming down and making a note of symptoms, I am showing signs of overactive you of the thyroid. Panic attacks, nail splitting and flaking, intolerance to heat etc. I have reduced the dose and feel a bit better. Has anyone else experienced this so long after surgery. A friend jokingly suggested my thyroid had grown again.
