I'm new to the forum and the diagnosis and am struggling to make sense of my treatment. Im a 30 year old man, was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid last year with a TSH of 6, after years of symptoms that went undiagnosed - tiredness, loss of libido, low mood, dry skin. Got so bad last year that I finally go it checked out. Six months into treatment hit a 3 month patch of feeling great on 88mg, TSH went down to 1.4. Suddenly had the energy to do everything I wanted to do. Recently been feeling rubbish again, still on the same dosage - TSH back to 2.9. Have now had my prescription upped to 100mg, yet to see how much of a difference that makes. Have been getting a new symptom - intermittent numbness in the my legs and fingers and tingling recently.
What is your experience with this - does it go away when the TSH is brought down?
And how stable is your dosage? Is it normal for the TSH to more than double with the same prescription of levo?
Would really appreciate your pointers and experiences!
