Went to see a lovely rheumatologist at QMH Roehampton on 22/8.
She asked me 2 questions about how I was feeling and then said "
Have they tried you on a higher dose of levothyroxine ? "
I nearly fell off my chair! It's what I have been asking for for yonks - especially since Clutter said it might be the answer to my problems.
She didn't seem overly concerned about any effects on my heart. Just said your not 85 with a heart condition so you should be fine.
So the Consultant rheumatologist has raised my Levo from 100 to 125 and says I may need 150.
Had lots of bloods done and X Rays for all my various aches and pains.
I go back in about 6 weeks to get the results of those and to see if there is any improvement. Only slight problem is she has only given me 4 weeks worth of 100 + 25 tablets. I might have to break some of my old supply of 100's into 4 --- or can I take another 100 every 4Th day ?
Anyway wanted to share my little bit of success. Hope the higher dose works.
