Need a bit of help, suffered thyroidtoxicosis and hospitalised for 3 days to get levels down the due to irregular and unstable bloods recommended to have RAI. That was over 10 yrs ago, been on levo 100mcg since that point, on the whole doing OK, well apart from weight gain and a few wobbles.
Recently over the last 6mths experiencing horrendous lethargy, mood drop, muzzy headedness and regular headaches, can sleep for 8-9 hrs and some days not all, on the bad days go back to bed and sleep again to 2-4 hrs.
Had bloods done and but GP will only do serum T3 and serum TSH as the rest are too expensive!!!! Gone back today following the research ive done on this site to push for more he has now agreed to do ferritin folate and Vit D levels but still says that the others are not required.
Serum free T3 3.8 range 3.50-6.50
Serum TSH 0.09 range 0.35-4.50
no symptoms of hyperthyroidism as experienced with initial thyrotoxicosis, aware that TSH is low and now been recommended to reduce levo down to 75mcg. But if I'm being treated with levo surely the TSH will be supressed as receiving the dose I need??
Not sure how to interpret these results and what to do now as I do not want to put more weight on (5'2" and weighing 12st, way too high for me, before all this I was between 9-10 stone.
Repeat blood test done today, should I get a private endocrinologist apt ?????
