I have been diagnosed hypothyroid for about 10 years after symptoms of lethargy. I had been on relatively low levels of thyroxine for 7 or 8 years. Having then taken a keener interest recently I have had dose increased up to 150 microgram T4 last year my tsh was down to 1. however I felt worse, couldn't sleep well, excessively hot and sweaty, no improvement in energy, and then the start of vitiglio on my chin and throat. I have since backed off my dose of T4 and changed to NDT. I generally feel much better, more energy and feel healthy, apart from the vitiglio that is still spreading.
I am wondering if I could have been misdiagnosed originally? my tsh is currently 12 but I feel great on the lower dose. I am also wondering if the vitiglio was triggered by the overdosing of T4 if I didn't really need it?
apart from going GF what else can I do to get my immune system back to normal?
Many thanks in advance
