I had a baby 9 months ago. After various visits to the doctor with aches, dizziness and then my periods going crazy, a blood test revealed that I had thyroid trouble. (First blood test was TSH 46, then 3 weeks later, with no treatment, it was 26!) How does this happen?
Nobody has really explained how or why My thyroid has stopped working other than to say that my thyroid was OK in March 16 (baby was born in November 15). The only thing they did say was that I shouldn't get pregnant because I'd have a cretin. It was all very indelicate and upsetting.
They started me on 25mg of levothyroxine which I asked to be upped to 50mg after a week because I thought it was too low.
I feel a lot better on the pills but I would like my blood results explaining to me and my GP doesn't seem to be able to do that
