Good afternoon, delighted to find this group and see how others are struggling too.
(Sorry that sounds dreadful)!
I was diagnosed with over active thyroid 30 years ago and treated for ten years. Everything was stable and drugs were discontinued. 15 yrs ago I was diagnosed with underactive and treated with levothyroxine.
I have continually had health issues which have all come back to originating from my thyroid.
I am just out of hospital again with total breathlessness and chest pains. On admittance I told them to please check my thyroid levels. I was ignored. After heart scans, CT scans etc finally after 4 days of being in there I was told my thyroid was "playing up" again
Results I have been given are:
They have increased my levothyroxine by 25mg to 125.
I am now home and obviously the problems I have had to admit me to hospital will take time to subside until my levels are back to normal again. I am wondering if 25mg will make a change or after my blood test in 6 weeks they will have to increase again and again.
At this time I can only just walk to the bathroom before being out of breath and palpitations.
Any advice or recommendations of reading matter would be appreciated
