Hi, recently had blood results back . tsh now at 6.6.. 9 weeks ago it was at 7.. And before that 16 I think?. Anybody know why. If I 'was' taking 125mcg , that my tsh number has slowed down this time?. It's only dropped from 7 to 6.6..
I'm now on 150 mcg as suggested by my doctor.. But what is this levo supposed to make u feel like as I don't feel any better St all. I don't hardly have any energy and today after taking 150(which I've only just started last week).. I feel crap.. I feel half asleep.. I certainly can't say that I feel amazing.
I dunno how much of it is menopause as well as Im in surgical menopause as had a hysterectomy 4.5 yrs ago and take hrt ..
Also why is it that after taking my levo I feel freezing cold not long after and also I feel really hungry after taking it like I can't wait to eat toast or whatever.. Is levo the only thing I can take for hypothyroidism? I. Seeing my doc later on so was wondering if ther d anything else I can ask to try as in not sure this medication is doing me much good.. What else could they give me ??
And why hasn't my tsh lowered so much this time compared to before
When first told, I was borderline she said. My level was at 11... Gave me 25mcg to take and afer about a month or so tested again and level was at 16. So they told me I had to get up to 100mcg which I had to do pretty quick within space of a week.
On 100mcg and tsh dropped to 11.. Then dropped to 7 (125mcg).. And now I was at 6.6 so told to take 150mcg - seems soom as I take that extra 25mcg I feel shit to start with).. but I just want to know : what am I meant to feel like?.
