Hi there, I posted a little while back about worsening severe fatigue & dizziness amongst other symptoms and had tried increasing my dosage from 25mcgs to 50mcgs of levothyroxine.
I've hit a dead end with my GP who said I've done all I can (not that HE's done all he can) and that I'm just going to have to accept that maybe I'm just prone to being this ill. He won't do any more tests and doesn't think I should be on 50mcgs of Levo. I've been on this dosage now for 4 weeks and although I initially thought I was getting a tiny bit better, I've now got a lot worse and am struggling to get through each day even with nothing on my schedule. I'm also now getting bad joint pain and losing a lot of hair.
I'm due to go back to college in a week - I'm in my final year and my course director wants to know whether I'll be able to finish the course. The way I feel now I wouldn't be able to last more than two days (we do 70hour weeks) if even that.
I've read up about adrenal problems and am doing a 24hr saliva cortisol test next week. I have also had other tests done privately but can't get the results for another few weeks. I'm being very impatient but I'm steadily getting worse and don't want to have to pack in everything I've worked for .... is it worth trying T3 now? If so, could anyone recommend a reliable source and some guidelines on dosages? I appreciate any advice anyone could give me, I'm absolutely desperate at this stage.
