Hi all, 1st post although I have been reading lots of them! Dr put me on levothyroxine 50mcg 10 weeks ago because my results were
TSH 9.54mU/L (0.27-4.2)
TPOA 354 IU/ml(<34.0)
Free T4 11.8pmol/L (11.0-26.0)
2nd test results
Free T4 15.5pmol/L
TSH 0.89 mU/L
2nd test taken 11.30am after tablet (didn't know better then) told Dr this said it didn't matter! She was very pleased with my results as I am now in range. Asked about T3 said don't test that it doesn't matter. Told her I felt worse than ever, bad headaches palpitations chest pain can't sleep even though fatigued and said she could lower dose to 25mcg or because I've not been on them long to stop taking them. although she's never heard of anyone having any side effects to levo. Remembered to ask about B12 folate ferratin d3, said my B12 was really good at 734, in 2010!!! what's that got to do with now! then said well it doesn't matter what supplements you take because your antibodies are going to keep attacking thyroid until it doesn't work.
Feel really ill, a walking zombie to be honest most nights I hope I don't wake up in the morning because I'm stuck in this horrible groundhog day! I'm not depressed just desperate to feel human. Sorry for the long post! any advice welcome, should I reduce the dose or stop?
