Been dealing with hashimotos going on 16 years. I call it the "Roller Coaster Ride From Hell"!
I have been as high as 300 mcg Levthyroxin due to Antibodies being high.
Hashimotos makes the TSH SWING Up&down. When your numbers are high its Hypo & when the numbers are low its Hyper!
Example of hashimotos humor (Not Funny).
March 05,2016 TSH (24.81)-(Free T4 0.8) HYPO
Doctor increases Levthyroxin from 150 mcg to 175 mcg
Felt Lethargic ,weighted down like I couldn't move felt horrible after 5 days on increase.
Message my doctor he lowered me back down to 150mcg Levthyroxin.
Had blood work May 12, 2016 TSH(0.12) Free T4 (1.2) HYPER
So I was HYPO doc increased Meds however due to my symptoms after only 5 days on increased Lowered Back Down to 150mcg! So this is illogical
Now bloodwork done July 9, 2016 shows TSH(24.67) & FREE T4 (0.8) HYPO again,so they ask "Are You Taking Your Meds"? OMG well yeah !!!!
Their thinking my Pituatary yet ACTH just done recently was Normal & Prolactin was Normal so not sure if they'll retest or do some other test.
This is NOT the first time this has happen since being diagnosed. Oh I also Don't Absorb B12 have to get shot & was just diagnosed with Neuropathy and I'm NOT Diabetic!!!
My point I want to make is Ask Questions and Keep Asking tell you Get Answers because they love to make you feel like ITS ALL IN YOUR HEAD!!
Due to my persistence I found out my Numbing Tingling in hands & feet quite honestly they feel dead like their not there Neurologist diagnosed Neuropathy!!!
Furthermore they're going do investigate further into TSH up&down
So if you stop asking even though they are ignoring you'll never get answers. It's Your Body & Your the one Suffering.
