Gosh am i thankful for this forum! It has certainly helped lift my spirit at a time when i was so confused, it's nice to know i am not the crazy physco i thought i was becoming, & even nicer for my partner, who was starting to believe that he had something wrong with him!
I was told i have hypothyroidism at the start of July, It was my 3rd or 4th blood test since November 15! My doc simply said that my thyroid was a bit sluggish and i would need tablets for the rest of my life. She didn't provide anymore information so I've had to look it up myself. (as i am sure that many of you also have)
I have been prescribed 75mg of levo and i am aware that my dose is likely to be changed as i have more blood done, i've also made a note of the other test's i need to ask for, i will ask at my appointment this Thursday. Is it easy to request these other tests or can my GP make it difficult if she doesn't believe i need them?
Also, has anyone else experienced feeling really great almost instantly after starting the medication and suddenly crashed and burned? don't get me wrong, i never thought this was going to be a quick fix but i also never thought the tablets would make me go up and down like this. I felt better for almost two weeks and the last week has been awful, no energy, awful moods, depression, joint aches etc!
Roll on my bloods next week.
Thanks in advance for your replies!
