Enjoy (if that's the right word!!) reading the posts on here but would apprecate some advice!
I was stable for 18 months on 50 Mg Levo (low I know) and felt tickety boo. I caught a virus last September, ended up on Prednisalone, admit I missed some Levo doses as I was so ill, and life hasn't been worth living since really
October, had bloods as I felt so poorly. Doc said I needed to up my Levo so doubled me to 100 mg, December I still felt dreadful, blacked out, heart palps, more bloods and I was too high, so dose reduced to 75mg. Feb bloods showed i was still too high, so back on to 50 mgs!!
During this whole time I have felt lightheaded weirdness verging on dizzy and have constant tingling all over my body. I've been tested for all my vitamins and stuff and all are in the correct range. My diet is impeccable, fresh fruit and veg, pulses, nuts (not walnuts/almonds), no brassicas or soya. Just good home made food with oily fish, eggs dairy etc.
Sooooooo, why, despite all my differing doses of levo, do I still feel so sh*t!? One thing that keeps popping in to my head is the connection with my reproductive hormones? Can anyone help with this. Until I got the virus last September I was having regular periods, I'm 49, but since the virus, I hadn't had any until this week when I have had a 5 day period, very long for me. Weirdly, 3 to 2 days before I came on I remarked to my daughter just how well I felt, it was almost like feeling normal again, but that short term hope ended with my period. Is it possible that my issues are caused by being pre-menopausal, and is there something that I can take to make my hormones be how they were when I felt fine 2/3 days before my period? long shot I know, but I'm getting desperate.
Thanks in advance
