So I have been to the doctors today, I saw a different doctor to my regular doctor. I was diagnosed by my regular gp as hypothyroid in Jan this year. Put on 100mg of levothyroxine. I haven't really noticed an improvement. But carried on. The last couple of weeks I have been suffering from bouts of tachycardia, dizziness and blurred vision. I went to my regular gp he tested my thyroid levels and I got told they were satisfactory and return if heart issue continued. Last night I had a really bad episode so went to a doctor today. He has basically said I am not hypothyroid but I have subclinical thyroid dysfunction and I have been given levothyroxine when I shouldn't have. He believes I have antibodies attacking my thyroid and is sending me for a blood test. He wants to ween off the thyroxine. He showed me my test results.
Originally my thyroid levels were 10 and tsh was between 3 - 4. Now on thyroxine my thyroid levels are around 16 but my tsh is practically at zero.
Does anybody have any advice for me?
The doctor has referred me to have a 24hr ECG monitor to check there is no underlying heart arrhythmia and has asked me to have blood tests to check my thyroid levels 6 weeks and then 3 months after coming off the levothyroxine.
The doctor I saw today is going to speak to my doctor, he didn't seem happy with him at all
