I have recently been diagnosed with hypo. I went to the GP after a summer of feeling unwell in waking on an empty stomach. I have always have had depression and anxiety. I was having night sweats and always feel like I was hit by a bus I was so tired. Huge brain fog - esp hard when trying to restudy, have to get everything done in the morning. As a mother with 3 kids I thought this was normal. So I was diagnosed have been having levothyroxine 100mcg for nearly a month. I feel no change, no side effects. I was hoping for a miracle to feel great. The tests results say it, but I feel lost that nothing has changed .. will it change? My results;
TSH 12 (0.27-4.20)
T4 10.7 (12-22)
I guess I am just very clueless at the moment, is this mild? Could I get away without taking meds?
I have learnt a lot from this site MANY THANKS!
