Last month my doctor was really sweet and said he felt by just looking at me and by my symptoms I was definitely hypo. My levels of TSH were 4.9 (.25 - 5.0) and he felt I would benefit from a therapeutic dose of levothyroxine. He put me on 25mcgm and last Friday I had bloods redone and I fasted for them. He said it wasn't necessary to redo T4 and t3 so I only had TSH done. (I cant remember what my levels were, I know they weren't good). Well it's come back at 1.83! The receptionist at the surgery said he has put on my notes no further action. So now I'm really confused. I told him how I felt physically. I am blowing up like a ballon with water retention, my basal temp is averaging at 35.1 (doc doesn't think this is relavent) I'm sleeping in the afternoon, I can't concentrate, the head fog has eased a bit and my anxiety is really bad at the moment. I have weaned my self of Prozac as I felt it was making me numb. Now I can barely walk as my feet are so painful. I don't know how much more of this I can take to be honest. I've gained 6 stone in 5 years and I'm so lethargic. I feel like I'm gonna get fobbed off again and to top it all off I've started smoking again after stopping for 8 months. I've just ordered tests from blue horizon. (Thyroid plus 10) I feel so fat and I'm now feeling like I should give up and accept in just fat and lazy even though I'm not. Does anyone have any advice please?
