I've been feeling increasingly tired and other symptoms especially crying a lot after being initially not too bad when my thyroxine was increased to 75 mcg back in the spring. I did a Blue horizon test in August which came back at about 2 for TSH which I feel is too high whilst being treated but I knew my GP would have said it was fine so I had another with the GP and cut my levo down for 10 days before going and success my TSH was 5.03 (range 0.3 to 5.5) which is near enough to the top of the range to get a prescription for 100. Now I will increase by 12.5 for four weeks and then up to 100 to give my body time to adjust and retest just before Christmas. Hopefully this will help but it is crazy that on treatment and with a TSH of 5.03 and FT4 of 12 (near the bottom of the range) I feel the doctor is really reluctant to increase my dose and I felt I have to try and "trick" the test to get the increase I feel I need.
