i recently asked my GP to increase my levo as I am still not feeling well. My previous levels were tsh=4.3, ft4=16.6. He responded by asking for another blood test. I accidentally took an additional 100 mg of levo, 2 days prior this test, posted here about it and was advised to skip a day, which I did.
The results from this have just come back. I was astonished to see my tsh=0.12! Free t4=18.6.
My GP now thinks I am marginally over-treated! I felt ok for about 1 week on this dose, then went down with a cold virus 3 weeks ago and i still feel as ill as I ever have with tons of hypothyroid symptoms and no hyper symptoms at all! Could it be the virus that has affected the results?
I feel so down and at a loss about what to do next. My GP has told me to wait another 8 weeks before having bloods done again, when he may reduce my levo. I am feeling increasingly desperate as I have been off work for nearly a year now, no longer have a job to go back to, have severe financial problems as a result etc, and feel so poorly and depressed. It's hard to see any light at the end of the tunnel at the minute...
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.
